My album collection: Go Away Little Girl

Since many you know that this blogmaster likes to collect vintage vinyl albums, it's a nice Friday so far so I'll tell you about one of them!

This week is Lawrence Welk's "Go Away Little Girl"

First released in late 1971 by Ranwood Records, it's one of many of the Maestro's albums that feature his musical family in a wide variety of musical tastes for the time....and it's very pleasant listening as well!

Two of the songs listed in the album, were heard on last week's "Salute to Los Angeles" episode they are,

"Go Away Little Girl" by Guy Hovis, and "Rainy Days and Mondays" by Tanya Falan

There's also even more great songs on the album, some of them include....

"The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" featuring Clay Hart, "Never Ending Song Of Love" by Sandi & Sally

plus terrfic instrumentals by the Welk orchestra such as....

Theme from "Summer Of '42" with Bob Ralston on piano and "Never My Love" by the Champagne Music Makers

And the last track on the album, fittingly is the closing song we all know and love, "Adios, Au Revoir, Auf Wiedershen."

In all, there are a dozen fine songs in all....check out ebay, or your local record trading place to get this album, that is if you don't have it.
