Mr. Governor


Here's something you don't see every day, an album of Christmas music by a former governor of Louisiana. And this isn't this only Christmas record! But it's the only one I have, so now you can have it too. If you want to know more about this, you can read what I read last year, but if all you want to do is listen to it, please download Jimmie Davis-It's Christmas Time Again (Decca DL 4587, Mono, 1964).

1. It's Christmas Time Again
2. Silent Night
3. Beautiful Star Of Bethlehem
4. It Came Upon The Midnight Clear
5. Christmas Message
6. No Room At The Inn
7. Go Tell It On The Mountain
8. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
9. Away In A Manger
10. A Child Was Born
11. Joy To The World
12. Gently Rock His Cradle

Ernie, thanks for all the great shares!

It looks like the release date for the Jimmie Davis LP was actually 1964. Brenda Lee's Christmas Album (officially released in 1964) was Decca DL 4583 / 74583. Neely's book also says 1964 for the Davis LP.

I don't know where I got that date last year. I searched and found the original release date in Billboard magazine.
