Used Music-Track Twenty Nine

You can never go wrong with some good, tight vocal harmonies, especially at Christmas. So this time for Used Music you get the vocal stylings of The Anita Kerr Singers performing God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen from For A Musical Merry Christmas, Volume 4 (RCA Victor For B.F. Goodrich PRS-253, 1967). Short, but sweet. Notice anything familiar about that cover? I did once I started looking at it closely. Compare it to this one, or maybe this one is a bit clearer. Who knew they were recycling these great images over at RCA. I've got another example I hope to share with you soon, but I don't know if I'm going to squeeze it into this year. One last note before I finish here, I shared the doodle form the back of this LP here.
