The Big Day

This record is something that drew my eye many years ago, and I've enjoyed it ever since. The music is only so-so, but if you look closely, you'll notice that it's Jack Benny playing Santa on the cover to Dennis Day and family. (The cover image above is actually a hybrid of the stereo and mono versions. The mono versions lack the stereo-spectrum banner across the top, and stereo versions lack the info about Jack 'Santa' Benny across the bottom.) I think I actually ripped a mono version all those years ago because my stereo copy was too beat. This may be a recording I need to revisit during the coming year and try to find a cleaner copy for you. But for this year, please be my guest and download Dennis Day Sings "Christmas Is For The Family" Featuring Lou Hollingsworth At The Wurlitzer Electronic Organ & The Vail Boys Choir With Full Orchestra (Design Records DLP-X-1). This is a rerun from both 2005 and 2006, so click through to those posts for more info on this great release. Even though the music on here is by Dennis Day, there are three little bits of audio with Mr. Benny that are worth more than the price of admission. Trust me.

I'm always amazed at the one kid's black eye.
