I'm a bit of a loudmouth.
OK...bit is an understatement. Hell, Lewis Black would have an easier time whispering in church than I ever would. Generally speaking my outspokenness tends to bite me in the ass (I'm the king of talking shit about something/somebody right as they enter the room). Being loquacious, however, can have its benefits...
I pretty much can't shut up about Iowa. The school, the state, its people. I'm in love, and around here I'm sure I'm not alone. At any rate, I enjoy sharing my adoration of all things Hawkeye with my friends and coworkers here in Chicago. On Monday I walked into the hospital I work at to find a present with my name on it. I opened it up to find this nifty little treasure:
Who knew the victims of the girl from The Ring were Old Gold Singers?
Apparently my supervisor was rearranging some stuff for an upcoming governing body inspection and one of my coworkers found this in near perfect condition.
Does anybody have any idea of when this is from? I've looked all over the record and the case and cannot find a date. It does make reference to the University Band marching in the Rose Bowl parade in 1957 and 1959 so it's obviously sometime after that. Based on the outfits and the general look of the people in the choir I'd guess sometime in the early 60s.
Unfortunately I don't have a turntable with me in Chicago but maybe this is the excuse to steal one of my dad's that I've been looking for. I'm interesting to hear some of the tracks as I am not familiar with at least a few.
Side 1: The University Band
- On Iowa
- The Iowa Fight Song
- Roll Along, Iowa
- 76 Trombones
- King Henry March
- Parisian Street Dance
- Orange Bowl March
- Hands Across The Sea
- The Gallant Boulevardier March
- Golden Gate March
- Hawkeye Glory
Side 2: The Old Gold Singers
- Iowa Victory Chant
- Iowa, It's A Beautiful Name
Something subtitled "Dream Medley" with the following songs
- I'll See You in My Dreams
- Goodnight Sweatheart (sic)
- Where or When
- Sweetheart of Sigma Chi
- May the Good Lord Bless and Keep You
- Old Gold (Hymn)
I'm probably a giant nerd for posting this, but I thought it was pretty neat. Any ideas about when it was from would be greatly appreciated!
