Gene Autry - I Wish My Mom Would Marry Santa Claus [78rpm]

10" obscurity, b/w "Sleigh Bells". Columbia J-210.

 

(Rosemary Clooney's "Suzy Snowflake" was J-123, btw)

 

Art by Mary Blair. The back of this sleeve isn't illustrated, it's a list of other Columbia J-series titles by other kid-friendly folks like Burl Ives.

 

FYI this song is available on two recent Autry CDs: "Rudoph The Red-Nosed Reindeer and other Christmas Classics" (Columbia/Legacy CK 63598) and "The Complete Columbia Christmas Recordings" (Varese Sarabande 302-066-593-2)

 

Don't ask me how this made it to Explore. But it did. Thanks!
