A Very Kenny Christmas

A Star Wars-related Christmas share today, though a very tenuous one at best.  You may recognize Kenny Baker as the guy who performed as R2D2 in the Star Wars films, but did you know he also recorded a Christmas album years earlier?  Well, that's because he didn't, but someone with the same name did!  Perhaps that counts for something. I shared this out back in 2010 and I'm bringing it back this morning just for you.  This is Kenny Baker-Carols For Christmas From Kenny Baker (International Records LP 5125 (AKA Christmas Carols From Kenny Baker-Kenart LP KA-6), Mono, 1958). There's an alternate cover down at the bottom for you, and a couple more songs can be found at this post if you look in the comments.

1. O Holy Night
2. Joy To The World
3. Medley-It Came Upon A Midnight Clear and Hark, The Herald Angels Sing
4. Angels We Have Heard On High
5. O Little Town Of Bethlehem
6. The First Noel
7. Good King Wenceslas
8. Silent Night
9. While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night
10. Medley-Away In A Manger and O Come All Ye Faithful
11. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
12. White Christmas
13. Deck The Halls and Carol Of The Shepherds
14. Jingle Bells
