DOWNLOAD NO.182 - THE GRADUATES

ANOTHER LOST ITEM FROM THE FESTIVAL VAULTS "LITTLE DONKEY" BY THE GRADUATES WHICH WAS A CHRISTMAS FAVOURITE AT MOST CHURCHES IN ITS DAY...AND PROBABLY STILL IS WITH THE BABY BOOMER SET...THE 7" SINGLE CHARTED IN SYDNEY AND N.S.W. AND GOT TO #37 IN DECEMBER 1959.

IT IS A VERY RARE ITEM SENT TO ME BY ALAN WHO GOT IT FROM JIM...AND IT'S A HEARTY THANK YOU TO BOTH FOR ALLOWING ME TO SCRAPE IT CLEAN AND PUT IT HERE FOR DOWNLOAD.

THE GRADUATES WERE NANCY, PETER, PAT AND TONY. I DON'T KNOW FROM WHAT THEY GRADUATED BUT MAYBE A BLOG VISITOR CAN LEAVE ME A MESSAGE AS TO THE ORIGIN OF THE GROUP. THE BACKING WAS PROVIDED BY THE "FOUR STARS". ON THE FLIP SIDE WAS ANOTHER SONG CALLED "WHAT IS CHRISTMAS TO A BOY" BY A GROUP CALLED THE TOPPERS WHO WERE ACCOMPANIED BY THE "FOUR STARS".

ENJOY "LITTLE DONKEY":
