hank garland’s “greensleeves” is not his only christmas effort. the prominent guitar on bobby helm’s “jingle bell rock” and brenda lee’s “rockin around the christmas tree”, that’s hank garland. a car accident in 1961 ended his musical career.

I'm not sure who I thought that was, but that's not who I thought that was. You appear to be correct though. Funny how he wound up on two of the biggest Christmas hits in history!

This share included a few tracks that I really quite enjoyed including Greensleeves (love the pace of this one considering Garland's other more rock-like contributions to Christmas music (thanks for that info barba); Hot Toddy (what a great title and such a lovely track); Joyful Sounds of Christmas (this was a wonderful medley!) and Moonlight in Vermont (can't go wrong with Percy Faith!!). Thanks again for sharing these with us.
