How many different recordings of "Auld Lang Syne" did Guy Lombardo make? I know of the following releases, but am not sure if they are all different or not:


1939 - St. Louis Blues / Auld Lang Syne (10" single, Decca 2478)

1947 - Auld Lang Syne / Home on the Range (10" single, Decca 24260)

1953 - Auld Lang Syne / Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight (7" single, Decca 9-28905)

1956 - Guy Lombardo in Hi-Fi (LP, Capitol W-738)

1961 - New Year's Eve with Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians (LP, Decca DL 74177)

The only corrections I'd have to make to your list are the following:


First, in addition to the 7" 45-rpm single (catalog #9-28905), Decca Records also released the 1953 recording as a 10" 78-rpm disc as well: catalog #28905 (the same catalog number as the 7" 45-rpm disc only without the "9" prefix).


Second, in addition to the 12" LP release of Guy Lombardo In Hi-Fi (catalog #W-738), Capitol Records also released the 1956 recording as a 7" 45-rpm single as well (with the B-Side being "Enjoy Yourself"): catalog #6206.

Wow, I didn't realize I hit it so close to the mark! I figured some of those would be reissues of the same recordings and there would probably be half a dozen or so more that I overlooked. Thanks for the help, Chip. Your knowledge of this stuff never ceases to amaze me.
