THE TWELVE (45 RPM) SLEEVES OF CHRISTMAS: 'The Little Drummer Boy' - The Harry Simeone Chorale (1958)
It's hard to believe that this Christmas classic dates from 1958. 1858 seems more like it! Originally adapted from a Czech carol in the 1940s, 'Drummer Boy' became a #13 smash in '58 when it was rearranged and slightly rewritten by Simeone. Since then, the song has become as ubiquitous as Santa and mistletoe and has been recorded by JUST ABOUT EVERYONE!
