  1. Always thought Burl Ives was a good singer and wonderful actor. I remember some time back we picked our favorite rendition of Ghost Riders in the Sky and his rendition of the song is available on Youtube.


  2. I love Burl Ives who was so good in The Big Country and excellent as Big Daddy in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof . Who doesn’t love that snowman. This is quite a good song and I need to look up the lyrics.


  3. I guess because of my age…I always think of Rudolph the Red‐Nosed Reindeer when I think of Burl Ives.
