26 Days Of Christmas-Day 15

Yes, I know it's been a few days since I've given you a track for my 26 Days Of Christmas collection. It's hard to stay ahead of this stuff. I think this track may be worth the wait, though. I know nothing about title or artist here, I don't even remember when or where I dug up this single. But it's a great little song I'd never heard before, and I love new-to-me tracks. So please download Joe Ward, Orchestra Conducted By Dave Terry-Christmas Questions (King 45-4854). The flip side to this is Nothin For Xmas, which I didn't think was half as good as this track.

It may not be half as good, but "Nuttin' For Christmas" was the "A" side of the single and the one that charted in 1955. In fact, all 5 versions of "Nuttin' For Christmas" that ever charted charted that month. That's Barry Gordon, Joe Ward, Ricky Zahnd, the Fontaine Sisters and Stan Freberg for those keeping score at home. Ertha Kitt's purring version didn't chart, sad to say. Nor did Homer & Jethro's version. Both of those are from 1955 also. The whole country was crazy for Nuttin' in 1955.
