The 1966 Songbook (AKA: The Pink Songbook) & Kingdom Songs

 

(1966)_Watchtower_-_Singing_&_Accompanyi

Dear all,

I thought I'd start off my first contribution to the forum with something that I'm sure will be dear to many of your hearts: the actual songbooks (in English & Spanish) from 1966 and 1969 plus the songs themselves.

The scans of the songbooks were not done by me but are of good quality and I wanted to include them here in the post for the sake of completeness. The scans of the LP covers were done by me.

 

I recently bought a digital/analogue converter for my professional record deck and have been busy converting to digital format my old vinyl collection that isn't available in other formats.

 

All the kingdom songs have been recorded by me and I've removed the clicks & pops as best I can, although the records themselves are in great condition, seeing as I've had them since the 1978 International Convention in the UK at Sheffield. Therefore, I accept any responsibility for any naming errors. I've recorded them in the best MP3 quality available at 320k and each file contains the relevant ID3 tags and album cover. The whole process brought back some great childhood memories and both my wife and I were surprised at how many of the lyrics we remembered even though we hadn't sung many of them for over 35 years!

 

The actual files themselves are hosted on my own server, not on JWtalk so as not to cause any copyright issues, although I doubt there would be any problems as they are classed as discatalogued now and are unavailable anywhere else as far as I am aware.

 

I hope they bring back as many memories for you all as they did for us.

 

Hugs. Stoffer

I had a few problems with the file names on the server. It didn't like spaces in the files, which I sorted by inserting an underscore instead of spaces.

Then I saw that the file names with commas in them weren't even uploaded so I uploaded them again minus the commas. This means that in the list above, there are about 10 songs that won't download. All you need to do is delete the commas when you copy and paste into your browser and voila!

I'd edit them myself but I can't see where to edit my post here on the iPad. Sorry!

The edit function is available only for a few minutes after you post. If you have a new list, send it to a moderator and they can edit for you.

 

If you send it to me, it will be a while before I can do it. I'm traveling and on the highway until later this evening

Would it be possible to create a Zip file to include all songs?

Indeed it would. I'll do it over the weekend. That way, they can keep their original user-friendly file names. Thanks for the idea Mark.

Thank you for this great first post. You did an awesome job recording those songs!

I do remember the pink songbook, how many memories! :)

 

Thanks for all your help on getting me started on this forum and for correcting the errors in the links.

Here are the songs, covers and songbook scans all in one ZIP file.
It's almost 1GB so I would advise a fast and/or unlimited Internet connection.


Thanks to MARKRP for the idea of putting everything together in one file.

A quote from Jehovah Always Rewards His Loyal Ones:

Do you recall the pink vinyl songbook, “Singing and Accompanying Yourselves With Music in Your Hearts”? When this was approaching its final preparation, Brother Knorr said: “We are going to make some recordings. I want you to put together a small orchestra, just a few violins and a couple of flutes. I do not want anyone ‘blowing his horn’!” The Kingdom Hall at Bethel would be our studio, but there was some worry about using it. What would happen with sound bouncing off undraped walls, tile floors, and metal folding chairs? Who could help us solve disagreeable sound problems? Someone suggested: “Tommy Mitchell! He works at the ABC Network Studios.” We got in touch with Brother Mitchell, who was glad to help out.

The first Saturday morning for recording came along, and as the musicians were being introduced, one of the brothers had a trombone case. I remembered Brother Knorr’s warning: “I do not want anyone ‘blowing his horn’!” Now, what could I do? I watched as the brother took his trombone from the case, fixed its slide in place, and started to warm up. The brother was Tom Mitchell, and his first few notes were beautiful. He made the trombone sound like a violin! I thought, ‘this brother has to stay!’ Brother Knorr never objected.

In that orchestra, we had a group of fine musicians who were also loving brothers and sisters. There were no prima donnas! Recording was a strenuous job, but there were no complaints. When the work was finished, there were tears; and a strong camaraderie remains among those who took part. Every one of us enjoyed the privilege, and thanks to Jehovah, we got the job done.
