For your Christmas sound effects party....




So, it's December 22, and you're thinking, "Wherever can I find 'Horse and Sleigh (Continuous)' sound effects, especially at this late date?  Where?  Where???"

And then you stumble across this blog post.

From the early 1930s.  Author Rick Kennedy reports there were nearly 400 recordings in this series!  Whoa....

Sometime over the summer, I bought two file boxes full of sound effect records on 78. Not sure why, but I did. Only a very few of them were Christmas, and they were short songs. Only one of the whole batch I ever recorded was one labeled Various Boings. It was pretty good. :)

Where they on the Major label, by any chance?

Most of them. There are even several copies of their catalog. Why, was it something you donated to a store near you and it wound up down here? :)

No, I had a number of them years ago. They were one of big sound effects labels. And "Various Boings" sounded familiar.
