ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

As mentioned before, Judy Garland never made an actual "Christmas album". Her singles with Decca Records, and her few holiday performances on film and radio, plus this special episode from her TV series, are all that we have.

This CD compilation is a nice sampling of Judy singing Christmas and/or inspirational songs from the 40's through the 60's
.
