Used Music-Track Nine

How about some hip music from the most square fellow on television? That's right, Ed Sullivan, the guy who brought you Elvis, The Beatles and Senor Wences. He knew how to stay out of the limelight and let the stars shine, I suppose. Tonight's track, I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, is taken from A Very Merry Christmas-Volume 3 (Columbia Special Products for Grants, CSS-997, 1969), but it's originally from a full Christmas LP by The Ed Sullivan Orchestra that I've never found. I downloaded a copy last year from someone over at the FaLaLaLaLa forums, but a hard copy eludes me. Don't worry, though, I'm tenacious. Someday, vengeance, or at least an Ed Sullivan Orchestra Christmas LP, shall be mine!!!

Previous Tracks:
The Sanborn Singers-Jingle Bells
Les Baxter Orchestra And Chorus-Hang Your Wishes On The Tree
Sandler & Young-Mister Santa
Peggy Lee-Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town
Danny Kaye-Deck The Halls (With Boughs Of Holly)
Debbie Reynolds-There's No Place Like Home
Claudine Longet-Snow
The Glad Singers-We Three Kings Of Orient Are

Ernie -

That was my favorite Christmas album growing up. My favorite track - Cary Grant doing "Christmas Lullaby". Thanks so much for the download. Brings back lots of memories...

Have you ever shared this entire LP? I'd like to have it to go with my other 2 W.T. Grant LPs Volume 4 & 5. Thanks.

I thought about sharing out that Cary Grant track, but I'm saving that for an eventual celebrity Christmas collection. Someday...

Nope, haven't shared the LP. Too many tracks on there are on CD. I'm sure it's available out there somewhere, though.
