Oodles of Doodles CLXIII-Christmas 2005


From the flip side of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas (RCA Camden CAS-1101, 1968), this is The Sugarplum Fairy. She hosts this record of stories designed to get little tots to go to sleep on the night before Christmas. I don't know how well that plan worked, either for parents to get their excited kids to sleep, or for RCA to sell a record designed to be played once a year, but at least we get a nice doodle.

Twas the Night Before Christmas is to this day my most very favorite Christmas album. No, it never put me to sleep but listening to it meant it was Christmas Eve and OHMYGAWD it didn't get any better than that! I would give my right eye to have it on CD. Still have the original vinyl, all scratchy and well-loved, somewhere in storage. One of these days I'll get a new turntable and then OHBOY!!! Thank you so much for sharing the sugarplum fairy!!!

I was just looking for an image to put on the cover of the CD i just created for this album, and I discovered the posting from fangirly squeal. Man I would love to burn a copy for you. How to get it to you. That's the question....
This is for a girl at work. It was the first time I have seen or heard it.

I would really like to have a copy of this on CD. I remember it as a child and have been trying to find it to play to my girls. If it's possible to get a copy email me with payment info and I will get that to you along with shipping info. Thanks!!
