Merry Christmas


ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

Judy never made an actual "Christmas Album", unlike today where every singer makes at least one if not more Christmas or "Holiday" albums. The only Garland holiday records and CDs are compilations of her holiday and inspirational recordings for Decca Records and various television performances. And sometimes "Little Drops Of Rain" from the Gay Purr-ee soundtrack. Regrettably, Judy never recorded any holiday songs for Capitol Records.

Side One of this album features performances from Episode #15, "The Judy Garland Christmas Show", taped on December 6, 1963 and aired on CBS TV December 22, 1963. Side two features the Mantovani Orchestra performing various holiday classics. The only reason we can think of that Mantovani is included on this album is that the orchestra was under contract to this label. There is no other "Garland Connection".
