Dunn With Santa


I'm afraid I don't have very many Christmas 45's. They seem to be rather hard to come by anymore. I found this one in a pile of stuff I bought some time ago, but I must have forgotten all about it. But lucky for you I stumbled across it yesterday. Two delightful tracks about Santa. Well, more like Santa the place, not Santa the Claus. Listen to it, and you'll understand. This is from Kathy Dunn (Santaville Records K80W-4901/2). I wish I knew a year on this. Anybody have a clue? In fact, I'd like to know anything about this release. Google is coming up blank on this one. I'll have to break out the books.

If you want more Christmas singles, go see Lee!

Kathy Dunn and these works are listed in the BMI catalog. Unfortunately, not much other info except the BMI numbers and other artists on the songs.

They spell her name as Kathy Dune over there for some reason. I wonder which one is correct. And they list a third Christmas tune. A completists work is never done...

Maybe it was entered by the same guy who messed up Glenn Close's name on the UWP album.

That;s an RCA Victor Custom pressing, and the "K" at the beginning indicates 1959. More info here:

Thanks for the info, Narkspud. I'm going to have to start paying more attention to those catalog numbers now.
