Yes, that is Spock in the headphones. The year was 1979. These are some of my LPs, themed compilations, and the like.

Santa Claus Is Coming to Town - Jesse Crawford

This album must be from the 1960s, but not even Discogs knows when!

Turns out Jesse Crawford had a distinguished musical life, beginning with fame as an organist for silent movies.  He later became a name to conjure by, like "101 Strings" or "Ferrante and Teicher."

The arrangements, while masterful, will alternately make you cringe, or expect to hear a loudspeaker voice announce, "Couple skate!"

1)  Joy to the World
2)  Hark the Herald Angels Sing
3)  Santa Claus Is Coming to Town
4)  It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
5)  Deck the Halls
6)  Away in the Manger
7)  Good King Wenceslas
8)  Oh Holy Night
9)  Oh Come All Ye Faithful
10)  We Three Kings
11)  Jingle Bells
12)  What Child Is This
13)  God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
14)  O Little Town of Bethlehem
15) Silent Night

Let's get Christmassy!
