Notes: ~ "The First Christmas"
was originally recorded in two parts especially for children for RCA
Victor's Little Nipper Junior Series and released sometime during the
early 50s. The flipside tracks for EYA-19 are believed to be the 1946
recordings from the "Merry Christmas Music" compilation. Mr. Como used
"The Story of the First Christmas" many times
on his television show, prior to 1963, and thereafter on
his annual Christmas Specials. There were often slight
variations in the dialogue but essentially the story
followed the same sequence of songs.
