2009 holiday reissue. Originally released in 1956, Perry Como Sings Merry Christmas Music was actually assembled from a series of recordings he made in 1946, 1947 and 1953! Despite the passage of time and the fact that the original recordings were made with three different orchestras and conductors, there is a continuity in the overall album, proof of Perry's abilities as a singer. 15 tracks. Pickwick.
