~ Animal Rescue… “Shirley Temple” … Rare Recordings … mightydogshasta ~

shared by Grandma…


Very sad to hear that legendary child actor Shirley Temple just past away at age 85 – – – here are a couple of Japanese children’s songs recorded by her in Japanese when she was 8 years old. 

Shirley Temple sings “Yuyake Koyake” & “Kutsu Ga Naru” in Japanese

a very rare recording by Shirley at age 8 – – – 
This is a very rare ‘novelty’ recording; most of people even never heard about this recording before. Shirley Temple, the all-time great child actress, sings two famous Japanese nursery rhymes, “Yuyake Koyake (夕焼け小焼け)”, and “Kutsu ga naru (靴が鳴る)”, in Japanese. Recorded on March 11th, 1937, at Japan Polydor Studio at Tokyo, Japan. Temple was briefly visiting Japan for promoting her film “Dimples”. Despite the fact she learned the lyrics phonetically, there’s basically no errors on pronunciations; and it is pretty astonishing for a 8 year-old girl. This record had very few circulations; it was only released in Japan, and after WWII broke out, the Japanese government prohibited listening records made by any ‘American enemies’, so it is even rare in Japan.  

Thanks for checking this out…

WOOF !!!
