A Greene Christmas


I mentioned the other day that I love celebrity Christmas records, and here's a rare one. Lots of you have heard the LP Merry Christmas From The Ponderosa, it's even been releases on CD. But this single by one of the stars on that LP has never come out since it's original release. And even more important, it's good. So don't waste another minute, and go download this rerun from last year, Lorne Greene-Must Be Santa (RCA Victor 47-9037, 1966).

This is going on my sons' compilation next year for sure. Thanks, Ernie!

Okay, maybe I'm crazy...but wasn't there another Lorne Greene Christmas LP other than the Bonanza one? I'm thinking I've seen it on EBay.

PDMan-Yes, there's a whole LP of Lorne Greene Christmas. In fact, someone just shared it out over at FaLaLaLaLa. There was also at least one Christmas Seals record that he did. I have the sleeve to it, but no record... And then there are some radio spots that were also shared out at FaLaLaLaLa. He evidently loved Christmas. Good luck hunting it all down!

"Must Be Santa" can be found on the cd "Hooray For Santa Claus" compilation on Scotti Bros. Records (1995).
