Perry Como Sings Merry Christmas Music - 1957 RCA Victor compilation

| Lyrics | Digital Finder | Album Links |

Notes: ~ The recording by Gene Autry with The Pinafores ( Columbia ) sold over eight-million copies
and is listed as the second biggest-selling record during the first half of the 20th century, surpassed
only by Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" which sold over thirty million. The song has had sheet music
sales exceeding five million copies and has been translated into dozens of languages. Mr. Como
recorded his version first in 1953 and then again very uniquely with the arrangements of Joe Lipman
and Jack Andrews for his 1959 full stereophonic album "Seasons Greetings from Perry Como"
LPM/LSP 2066 on RCA Victor.
