I asked if anybody had any requests the other day, and this is one of the albums that someone asked for. I would have bet money that this was on CD, but it turns out that it isn't. This record has been re-released several times over the years, but the one you see in the scan is the issue I recorded. I believe it was originally available as Decca DL 8171 & later MCA 517, but you are about to download and listen to Fred Waring And The Pennsylvanians-'Twas The Night Before Christmas (MCA 15016), the copy I had that was in the best condition. And believe it or not, Fred had recorded this entire album earlier for Decca (as an LP, and sets of either 45s or 78s), which I may also share out if I get the time. You can buy a CD with the same tracks (and more!) here, made up of versions performed by Waring, et. al, from radio broadcasts. The cover you see above is by Norman Rockwell, and is owned by Hallmark Cards.
If you don't listen to any other tracks on this record, listen to Rudolph. Spike Jones must have been in the room along with one of the Chipmunks when they recorded this!
