Merv Shiner-Greatest Christmas Kiddie Hits

My favorite track from this LP just played at random on my computer, so I figured that meant I should go ahead and reshare this great surprise I discovered in 2012.  Merv Shiner was a big deal in the early fifties, hitting it big with a version of Here Comes Peter Cottontail.  Looks like he had one Christmas single back in the day, but this record didn't come out until the first year of my existence, 1970.  And even though the cover makes it look like a budget label throwaway, it's actually quite good.  So please, be my guest, download Merv Shiner-Greatest Christmas Kiddie Hits (Certron Corporation CS-7012, Stereo, 1970).

1. Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer
2. Little Drummer Boy
3. Oh, Little Town Of Bethlehem
4. Here Comes Santa Claus
5. Twas The Night Before Christmas
6. Frosty The Snowman
7. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
8. White Christmas
9. Pancho's Snowball
10. Jingle Bells
11. Away In A Manger
12. I Saw Mommie Kissing Santa Claus

You are really dealing them out this year!

I thought I was going pretty slow, I used to try to get two new things a day and up to four reshares! But going in, I told myself I didn't want to work that hard, so my goal is one new and one old a day. So far I've done a little better than that, but it gets harder and harder to motivate myself as the big day gets here. :) I just want to sit on the couch and watch old Star Trek reruns!

I lose my breath if I do more than one share a week!

I'm like Santa, I only have to work one month a year. :)
