SNOOPY'S CHRISTMAS - THE PETER PAN SINGERS
TRACK LISTING: Snoopy's Christmas, The Little Shepherd, Christmas Candy, Mary Christmas, The Snowflake Song, Jingle the Christmas Mouse, The Christmas Tree, Mr. Reindeer, Donner and Blitzen, Jack Frost's Christmas
IMPRESSIONS: This is the other children's Christmas record my grandmother bought me while we were food shopping at the Holiday supermarket in the mid-1970s. The first one I talked about in yesterday's post. I don't have much to add to what I mentioned in the other "SNOOPY'S CHRISTMAS" post other than that this album is perhaps more lively than the other one and also features a wider variety of song styles; the Peppermint Kandy Kids album has many songs which sounds similar to one another while this album is musically more distinct with each song and features many memorable characters. My favourite of these is "Jingle the Christmas Mouse" but there's also "Mary Christmas" and the delightfully bonkers "Donner and Blitzen" song which sounds like Carmen Miranda fell into a jazz improv group!
MY FAVOURITE TRACKS: Snoopy's Christmas, Christmas Candy, Mary Christmas, The Snowflake Song, Jingle the Christmas Mouse, Donner and Blitzen
FACT SHEET: SNOOPY'S CHRISTMAS is a children's Christmas record which most sources site as being released on Diplomat Records in 1968; my copy of the LP was on Tinkerbell Records released sometime in the early to mid-1970s. Both of these labels, however, were subsidiaries of Peter Pan Records and the studio musicians/singers can most properly be called "The Peter Pan Singers". The cover art on my copy of the LP (pictured above) was by Howie Post.
