Singles Night!

Yes indeed, it's Singles Night at Merry & Bright!  What I mean is, I have a couple vintage singles to share with you, both performed by The Cricketones

First up is "Santa Claus is Coming to Town", with "Ding a Ling Dong The Sleighbell Song" on the B-side.

The companion single is "The Night Before Christmas", backed with "Mixie Pixie" a whirlwind of a song coming in at a mere 1:03.

These are pretty much what you expect - kiddie-oriented Christmas songs, probably played dozens of times on a little portable record player back in the day.  But that's part of the joy of Christmas music, and what made so many of us collectors - the records we played when we were young.  I still have the Bing Crosby record I played year-round when I was a wee tot.

One of the songs - I think it's Ding a Ling Dong - has a bit of a skip that was unrepairable.  Part of the vintage vinyl game.
