Oodles Of Doodles CCLVI-Christmas In July 2007

Here's the doodle of the day for the 19th of July. Not too Christmassy, is it? Well, they can't all be winners. This is actually a B&W detail of a color drawing on the cover of the record. That drawing is a little kid dressed as a drummer boy, walking among some Christmas trees. I'm not sure why his hat has all these kids on it. The cover is actually signed Milton Glaser, I think. The big question here is the title of the album. It's listed on the front of the sleeve, the back of the sleeve and on the vinyl, and each time it says something different. At least all three agree that the artist is The Do-Re-Mi Children's Chorus and the label is Kapp, catalog number is KS-3368. The front cover claims the title to be Do You Hear What I Hear?-Little Drummer Boy, And More Of The Christmas Songs Children Love To Sing. The back cover refers to the LP as The Do-Re-Mi Children's Chorus In The Wonderful Wonderland Of Christmas. And the vinyl itself says More Of The Christmas Songs Children Love To Sing. You can take your pick I guess.
Wait a minute? Could this be the same Milton Glaser? This guy is famous...
