Icons of the '70s

Nope, not the Bee Gees.  Nor the Starland Vocal Band or the Bay City Rollers.  I'm talking icons of retail - at your door and on daytime television.  It's Avon and the Longines Symphonette, together for you!

Who remembers "Avon Calling!"?  And who remembers seeing TV ads for Longines Symphonette records?  I sure do.  Did anyone else call the Avon representative the "Avon Lady"?

Anyhoo, Avon sponsored a Christmas record by the Symphonette, and here it is for you.  It's really pretty good Christmas music.  A couple nice little medleys.  Some less frequently recorded Christmas songs in "Babes in Toyland" and "Hansel & Gretel".  All in all, a pretty good little record.

Please enjoy "Avon Wishes You A Happy Holiday and a Joyous New Year" as per the front cover.

Good stuff :-)
