Songs Of The Season X 4

I've been putting this one off for a while now, because it's such a pain to explain.  Basically, it's a one record that comes in at least four different versions, and I've managed to collection all four of them!  I'm only going to post the cover once because they all look the same.  Only a close inspection of the back side of the album or the labels would give away the secret that they aren't all the same record.  Each record features ten different artists giving you a holiday greeting (all from just a few different scripts) followed by a song.  Sometimes the person doing the introduction isn't the one who performs the song, I guess the artist wasn't available or something.  But it's usually an artist and their art.  There is some overlap from one record to the next, but not too much, and they all have some unique content.  This sort of thing is right up my alley, so I hope it's up yours as well.  These are Songs For The Season (Narwood Productions For The US Army Reserve, Stereo).  If these look familiar, I think I shared them all out one at a time back in 2016 (1, 2, 3, 4).

Now, the million dollar question, are there any more in this series?  I haven't seen any, but that doesn't mean much.  Anybody seen another one? I didn't find these all together, by the way.  I found them one at a time, and I kept thinking this cover looks familiar...
