Here's a rather awful Christmas 45 I picked up recently.
The unknown lead singers, the apparently tiny and local record label (with the address right below the logo), and the overall sound of the thing all point to this having been a vanity release.
But then there is the presence, on backing vocals, of The Jordanaires (joined here by the sadly unheralded "Millie"), and the fact that each side of the record features publishing by one of the giants of the industry.
So the pedigree on this record is a mystery to me, and I'd love to hear from anyone who knows more about it.
On the other hand, the actual contents of the record speak for themselves. Linn and Linda fairly demand that the listener's tear ducts let loose with their rendition of "Christmas Orphan". Then, on the flip side, the sing of a much happier "Merry Christmas Time", except that I don't really discern any difference between their tone, feel or any other aspects of their performances, in listening to the happy and sad sides of this record.
