Subject: anybody interested in those recordings?
From: keberoxu
Date: 17 Dec 17 - 02:52 PM

is it true that somebody is going to re-release
the Beatles Fan Club Christmas recordings?

Do they merit a Mudcat thread?

It still cracks me up to hear John Lennon
affecting a German accent
while blundering his way through Good King Wenceslaus.

Anybody else partial to the Beatles Christmas records?

Does anything predate the Beatles?

Just a thought.

Mind you in Australia they think Rudolph the red nosed reindeer is a Christmas carol - and that's just one example!

Maybe you don't Jennie but the vast majority of Aussies do.

I am trying to find a listing from a regional newspaper that would prove my point.

There is some good news - Margaret Walters and friends have just held the second annual event in Sydney of a get together featuring the Sheffield Carols.

A cracking time was had by all apparently.

The Mudcat Helps Me Solve
Yet Another Beatles Fan Club Christmas Record Mystery!

I lurk on a BS thread where the subject is cuisine,
although the thread title doesn't use that word.
There, two Mudcat members are reminiscing about service in Germany,
and one of them mentioned BAOR.

Ta - DAAAA!

I forget which year it was, but on one Fan Club Christmas Record,
John Lennon and Paul McCartney improvised a send-up of a greeting
to "the boys in good old BAOR-ey,"
pronounced bee eh oh ree, and all these years I have been clueless.

Although, of course,
I knew well that the Beatles spent a lengthy period in Hamburg ...

The BBC have just shown A Hard Days Night.

I thought it was as fresh as ever and even cleverer than I remembered.

And I've still got those Christmas records.

Some people think "Good King Wenceslas" is a Christmas carol... the CCA got that one right at least.

Are you using the term 'Christmas Carol' to mean a Christmas hymn, an ancient song or what the majority of any population would call a carol - any Christmas song. Yes it does seem incongruous to find Jingle Bells next to Joy to the World in an alphabetical buskers list of tunes, but actually no stranger than religious songs blasted over a supermarket sound system.

I notice that, along with 'Good King Wenceslas', many other Christmas carols/songs NOT included in the Australian list - 'In the bleak midwinter', 'White Christmas', 'See amid the winter snow', 'Frosty the snowman' - describe a Christmas unknown to most Australians.

It's a different culture;

Christmas in Australia is Christmas in paradise,
Christmas in Australia is basically 'Bloody Nice',
Bruce goes steady with Sheila,
And Sheila goes steady with Bruce,
And if you don't have a Christmas suntan,
You're a Pommie and you ain't no use

BAOR - British Army of the Rhine.

In the 50s and 60s there was a popular BBC radio programme called Two Way Family Favourites, which grew out of Forces Favourites, in which families requested records to keep in touch with relatives in the forces posted overseas. The abbreviations BAOR and BFPO were in everybody's vocabulary back then.
