Used Music-Track Eleven


This evening's selection of Used Music is from the great Patti Page. I think this is a really great arrangement of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas. It made me sit up and take notice the first time I heard it, and that's rather uncommon. This comes from the double LP Winter's Warmth (Columbia Special Products for NORM, CSP-315/316). Not entirely sure who NORM is, but there is a note inside the gatefold cover saying something about "Distributed Exclusively By Financial Institutions", so maybe you got this album when you cashed in your Christmas club for the year. Just a guess, I really have no idea. I just know it's some great Patti Page!

Greetings Mr. Ernie,
What a great album. I found my own copy at a yard sell a few years back and have enjoyed it silly. I especially like the fact that one record is full of Christmas music, while the other is full of Winter music. Mr. Miller here kinda gets bummed when he has to put all those Christmas records away, so it's enjoyable to find a record that keeps the Winter Wonderland alive for the rest of the nasty weather season.
Thanks for sharing!
Yours,
Mr. Miller
