Perry Como with the Ray Charles Singers! TRACKS: A1. Christmas Eve; A2. Do You Hear What I Hear?; A3. Christ Is Born; A4. Little Drummer Boy; A. My mother had it in vinyl. I really wanted it in CD format. None of them plays properly. I guess the tapes are just too old. They sound distorted and slow and warbly. I know it's not the cassette player, as I tried them on 3 different players that all work fine with other tapes. What a disappointment! I wish someone would release this exact album on CD.
Perry Como Sings Merry Christmas Music was Perry Como's first Christmas album, originally released as an RCA Victor 78 RPM album set in 1946. The original release included "O Little Town of Bethlehem" which was replaced in 1947 by the famous "White Christmas". This album, along with Como's later stereo Christmas albums, Season's Greetings from Perry Como and The Perry Como Christmas Album, from 1959 and 1968 respectively, are among the all-time best-selling Christmas albums, and it has been reissued several times.
