Surprised Santa

Is it just me, or is that an extra creepy Santa on the cover of this LP?  I don't know why it looks as if his eyes are about to pop out of his head, but I suspect it's because he's been watching you sleep for too many hours in a row.  Anyhow, if you need a few more Christmas stories in your stocking, this rerun from 2010 is for you.  They're, ummm, interesting... This is Christmastime Stories As Written By Marie White And Told By Santa Claus Featuring The Michelle Scott Singers (Chiodo/Scott DM-761, Stereo, 1976).

1. The Puppy Who Wanted A Boy For Christmas
2. Santa's Secretary
3. Just To See Santa Come
4. Harry, The Christmas Turkey (By Fair Means Or Fowl)
5. The Day Santa Was Arrested

underneath those whiskers, that’s the gerber baby! take a look. gerber may say that babies are their only business (although they keep trying to sell me life insurance… go figure), but the little tyke seems to have taken a side job. it could just be one of those old plastic dolls that opened and shut their eyes. in either case, like you said, creepy.

and when you put a notion in my head, it doesn’t take much to get me started. (some of you may have noticed, i’m sort of creepy myself.) there’s lots of disturbing stuff about this record. take marie white. she has a face like a clenched fist. did you ever hear of a smile, babe? she claims to have been “delighting children and adults for many years”, but she scares the pants off of me. i think she scared the pants off santa claus too; for one of her stories is called “just to see santa come”, and then just below it is another called “the day santa was arrested”!! creepies!!! and couldn’t they spring for a couple of kids instead of trying to pass off sped-up adult voices as children? master ross never made that mistake. witch doctors, rodents, purple aliens, yes. urchins, no.
