Remember Christmas shopping at Grants department stores, or were you more the Kresge’s type?
Someone at Columbia Records produced this gem “Exclusively for Grants” at a time when CBS records resided at 51 West 52 Street, New York, New York. That’s right, no zip code needed. Only they could have gathered Christmas recordings from:
Mitch Miller and the Gang
The Ed Sullivan Orchestra
The Ray Coniff Singers
The Andre Kostelanetz Orchestra
The Percy Faith Orchestra
The Philadelphia Orchestra and Temple University Choir, with Eugene Ormandy as Conductor and
placing them all on one album for your listening enjoyment. Adding to your fervor to purchase this treasure comes this little marketing coup: “Few men in the world could make a ‘Christmas Lullaby’ more meaningful than the graceful, ageless CARY GRANT.”
Wow, there’s a sales pitch that is hard to improve upon.
Sharing Christmas album covers would be incomplete without the coveted translucent, green vinyl record.
Sometimes, just seeing is believing.
Merry Christmas !
