Feminist Christmas Carols--Feminist Carolers (1972)



From 1972, familiar Christmas carols with feminist lyrics substituted by Russellyn S. Carruth, whom a Google search identifies as a Pittsburgh lawyer, if she is in fact the same Russellyn S. Carruth.  Not a common name, so....

These come from the nine-track 45 rpm EP Feminist Christmas Carols (above).  "Hold the Door" is sung to the tune of "Jingle Bells," "O Come Dear to Bed" to "O Come, All Ye Faithful," and so on.  The download includes scans of the two lyric sheets included with the EP--you'll need them.

Enjoy: Feminist Christmas Carols--Feminist Carolers (1972)

Oooh, "Senate Rules Committee" is my favorite Christmas carol, so I'm always grateful for new recordings of it. Thank you! :) (Seriously, what a gem.)
