Here In The West We're Singin' The Best

When my wife and I put up our Christmas tree, it has become a tradition to listen to "Christmas On The Ponderosa". It's a classic album that features the cast of Bonanza celebrating Christmas in a mix of spoken word and song. It's entertaining as can be and provides many laughs that we look forward to all year. The holiday record is great but it is the second album of its kind from that great western series. The first one came out a year earlier and was the same concept without the holiday theme. It was titled "Bonanza: Ponderosa Party Time". As with the Christmas album, it features a mix of songs, stories and spoken word moments that make you feel like you are at a party on the Ponderosa! Here it is for you now. Enjoy!

BONANZA: Ponderosa Party Time

The Cartwrights singing "Happy Birthday" around the Ponderosa in the 1880s-1890s is an anachronism -- the song was originally written in the 1890s as "Good Morning to All" and didn't acquire the "Happy Birthday" lyrics until sometime in the 1910s.
