Rhymes With Sperry Domo

For the first time this year, I had the artwork for a share done before I recorded a single note.  Mostly because I thought I had already ripped this 45, but I was mistaken.  So when I went to share it, I couldn't find it.  I just sat down and ripped it real quick so I could get something new up tonight.  The title 'Kissing Bridge' may not sound like a Christmas song, but it is. And if you listen closely to the middle of the song, you'll hear a special guest star who shall remain nameless, but he's pretty well-known, I think you'll be able to figure it out.  My copy of this record was in a generic sleeve when I found it, but if you hunt around the net, there is a picture sleeve that features the disembodied, floating, bisected head of said guest artist.  It's weird.  Anyhow, this is The Fontane Sisters With Hugo Winterhalter-Kissing Bridge b/w Silver Bells (RCA Victor 7" 45 RPM 47-5524, Mono, 1953).

I like it! But I can't figure out the mystery singer, Sperry Domo. Snooky Lanson? Speedy Gonzales?

Mario Cuomo.

Ah, one of the Italian crooners!

Bisection is always a nice holiday touch.

Great music!

As the Fontane Sisters did sing a very familiar Christmas song with a certain solo lead male artist about beginnings and looking a lot like something, I have an idea who we could be talking about? Sonny Bono? LOL!

I wonder if Sperry is related to Perry Comma...
