THE WASHBOARD BIRTHDAY SPECIAL

washboard-special-frontJust noticed that the last post was my 700th post since I started this blog in 2007. To celebrate all these wasted years,  here´s another flexible Birthday 78rpm postcard record, published by the London based Melody Cards company. These postcard records offer perfect copyright-friendly blog material: anonymous artists, no copyright noted, 50 plus years old and of course never reissued.

Plus, underneath the crackles and pops, a pretty silly song.

No washboard though….

 

 

The Washboard Birthday Special

 

Happy, Happy Birthday!

Happy, Happy Birthday!

On this anniversary of the day that you were born.

 

Let´s git goin´ down the track,

Once I´se there ain´t comin´ back,

Git those presents on the rack

    I assume a CD reissue wouldn’t be the same fun!
    Great job you do on this blog. I’m currently on the other side of the planet (hence the Boogieman’s blog has gone dormant, no old records crates to dig into) but I continue to follow yours.
    Cheers

    I hope your enjoying life abroad! Sad you had to take a brake from blogging, though. My silly little records are no match to the quality of what you were posting. I hope you will come back one day.
