Not only Sony, but also bootleggers are rehashing Christmas material to make a quick buck. Now Elvis' Christmas Album gets this treatment.
Blue Christmas - Silent Night - White Christmas - Santa Claus Is Back In Town - I'll Be Home For Christmas - If Everyday Was Like Christmas - Here Comes Santa Claus - Oh Little Town Of Bethlehem - Santa Bring My Baby Back (To Me) - Mama Liked The Roses
Announcer / Elvis’ Special Christmas Program, 1967 - Announcer Elvis’ Single ‘If Everyday Was Like Christmas’ - If Everyday Was Like Christmas (Take 1, 2) - Blue Christmas (Live, 1968 NBC Tv Special) - Santa Claus Is Back In Town (Live, 1968 NBC TV Special) - Mama Liked The Roses (Undubbed Master)
Poor layout of titling on the illustration - all that space in the top LH corner !
They did not even bother to make another cover...
Will buy 10 copies again this year to give away to friends & family ! One of the very few mistakes the Col. makde
indeed was to agree with Binder/Elvis on the '68 TV special. If they would have listened to Parker, they would have made a Christmas Special that would have been successful year after year until the Maya's new calendar until 3012 !!
Or, he should have said to Binder and EP : here's what I agree on you cxxksxxkers: half an hour Hits by Elvis (as the TV special turned out) plus half an hour Christmas songs by the King. Take it or leave it. NBC would have agreed either way as they knew such a Xmas TV Show would still be running in 192 countries until 3012 !
