Simon & Garfunkel, The Star Carol
Theodore Bikel & the Pennywhistlers - Sweetest Dreams Be Thine
(A Very Merry Christmas, Volume 1; Columbia Special Products; 1967)
Today in the spirit of sharity, it's a double shot from A Very Merry Christmas, Volume 1, a promotional item that was only available via Grants Department Stores. While most of the artists contained within are usual suspects like Patti Page, Johnny Mathis and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, I thought I'd pass along its two most unusual tracks: a traditional carol sung by Simon & Garfunkel which until just recently was only available on this compilation, and a ballad by actor, folk singer and rooftop fiddler Theodore Bikel.
