MMMM: “The Great Songs of Christmas Album Five”

Here is an album from 1965 that was produced for the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company of Akron, Ohio. I guess if you bought a set of four tires, you got the album for free. The artists on these songs were some of the top artists of the mid-1960’s. of which only one, Doris Day, is still with us. Enjoy!

  1. This was some premium for buying four tires. All star! (Although Sleigh Ride seemed a bit short…) Nice background music for the season. I’m holding my breath for the continued health of Doris Day – and Betty White. Alana ramblinwitham


    1. Unfortunately, Doris died in 2019 (I missed the announcement, too). You know who’s still alive? Joyce Randolph (Trixie from “The Honeymooners”), who turned 97 this year.

      Those were the days when a free album of Christmas music by some top performers was enough to get people in the door at just about any establishment. And the days when the top performers were that good….
