Are their albums currently available on CD? 

Yes!!  HERE

[results #s 1 & 2]

That's really weird.  I mean, I've checked Amazon before... And those are from 1993... Hmmm....

Guess I should add them to my Wish List.  ;)

Continuing yesterday's TOD....I could find only one song from this couple on You Tube....it is not my favorite, but it is typical.

The inimitable piano and vocal stylings of Jonathan & Darlene Edwards

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alWBCVHGPnY

I have all their records but have not transferred them to another medium yet.  I loved Ms. Stafford's recording as Cinderella Humpmuster doing "Tim-Tay-Shun" too!

Hello, my name is Jeff, and I am a Percoset addict.  :)

My, but THE PRODUCERS floated by last night in a pale pink haze.

BK, you should be able to record in 1080p.  (BK will wait until MattH answers him, LOL).

I am hoping that due to BK's mention of finally "cracking a hard nut" we will finally be getting A TIME FOR SINGING.

Well I guess if Ethel Merman can do a disco album,  Darlene can too!

A word of caution to Mr. Bruce Kimmel regarding his DVR and setting recordings:

Some channels (some, mind you) don't necessarily start a program exactly when the channel guide says they will.  And some programs (mind you) don't necessarily end exactly when the channel guide shows them to be ending.

What you may get is a few minutes of pre-programming, followed by the program, and then you might find you may not get the last few minutes of the program,  This can be VERY annoying.

Not all channels -- NAY! Not even "most" channels -- do this thing.  Most are ultra-reliable.  But...you need to be aware of possibilities.

If there is something you absolutely do not want to miss one minute of -- something that might turn you into some unseemly raving individual if you missed a minute of it -- I recommend you go into the "set recording" mode and add a few minutes on the front and at the end...just to be CERTAIN.

When I used to record movies, I would start the recording manually in order to avoid this problem...even if I had to stay up until 3 am to do it.

I believe I have told my own little Jonathan and Darlene story.  I knew there were two CDs available, but had never been able to find them.  This was years and years ago before the internets were such a daily part of life.  Well Betsy had a business meeting in the tiny town of Port Townsend, Washington.  Gabe was still a baby.  On her meeting day I put Gabe in his stroller and took a walk through the small but lovely downtown block or two and found a tiny (like maybe 15 feet by 40 feet) record/CD store.  I walked in and there in the "cheapie" box on the front counter were the two J&D CD's.  I couldn't believe it.  I asked the owner how he got them and he said someone had special ordered them thinking it was the "Sunshine" Jonathan Edwards, LOL.

The Carioca.

This was used as the backing track to the opening credits of some move.   Sorry; can't remember now which one.

I think her recording of "Moonlight on the Ganges" was used over the opening credits of something like "Kentucky FriedMovie" too.

Various musicians I knew used to play these records as background music at parties and wait and see how long it took for people to say something.  Often people thought it was a friend's recording and didn't want to say anything nasty.

People can email me if they'd like MP3s of J&D, though I can't get to it until next week.

DAW, I promise I'll get Judy to you next week, too.

I see I arrived late to the party. I played Jonathan and Darlene Edwards' recordings throughout the late 1960s just to drive college roommates insane. I loved the Mitch Miller parody. The first album was so understated that people bought it (a la Eddy Duchin albums( thinking it was another lounge classic and returned it because the pianist stank. The second recording, "I Love Paris," was much broader, and still my fave.

I read that "The Carioca" was used over the opening credits to "The Kentucky Fried Movie".  Of course, the source was YouTube...but the write up was very thorough and seemed to have been written by a die-hard Jo Stafford fan.

I've been receiving John McGlinn performances from various sources, and this morning I downloaded his 2003 BBC Radio-3 concert, New York NY, with Kim Criswell who does a fantastic "Another Hundred People" and Brent Barrett, who does a wonderful song by my friend Barry Kleinbort.
