This first song is seared into my nostalgia bank and brings the verklempts to the surface. Ever since I was a child, one of the family traditions was sitting around Christmas Eve/Christmas Day listening to records. My favorite was the Reader's Digest five record set, 'Christmas Through The Years'. This was my first exposure to artists that are now some of my favorites--Bing Crosby, Perry Como, those barking dogs (LOL)--and the featured singer of this post, Harry Belafonte.
I just pulled this record for the Christmas record table. Have a listen and get yourself a copy.
