Another Record Corporation of America holiday classic!
Sure, it's a cute cover (another 10-incher for Christmas 2017), but it doesn't exactly have "High Quality" printed all over it. Well, actually, it did, and it took me hours to clone out the lettering. What a task....
Varsity, of course, was one of Eli Oberstein's labels, so the no-budget nature of this collection should come as no surprise. No artist credits, BUT (and I consider this a minor Christmas miracle), the tracks are listed in the correct order on the cover!! A possible first. Of course, the label screws them up in one spot, but you can't have everything.
I have at least two of these on singles, and there's something about one of the credits that's quite amusing. Too bad I can't remember what it was.... (Too lazy to dig up the single and check? Moi?)
The perfect background music for those cheap light-show thingies they're advertising on cable TV (including "Star Shower").
