The classic holiday album includes "A Holly Jolly Christmas" and "Silver and Gold"
Original soundtrack and music from the 1964 animated musical spectacular!
It's not unreasonable for any child to believe that Burl Ives might really be Santa Claus. After all, Big Daddy Burl narrates the animated Christmas classic about Rudolph and he did have that belly that shook like a bowlful of jelly. Ives is still remembered warmly by millions as the voice of Sam the Snowman, the narrator in this long-running TV special, first broadcast on the NBC TV network in December 1964.
The screen technique used in bringing the story of the little red-nosed misfit to life was "Animagic," a dimensional animation technique developed by the program's producers, Arthur Rankin Jr. and Jules Bass of Videocraft International. The rare combination of exactly the right ingredients of talent, story, music and production have merged into one of the magic moments of entertainment.
After listening to this 19-song treasure trove of Christmas music from the animated show, adults might even believe Burl is St. Nick. All the hits are on this generous collection, including "Silver and Gold," "We're a Couple of Misfits," "A Holly Jolly Christmas," "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day," and "The Most Wonderful Day of the Year." Why look any further for Ives's Christmas treasures when they're collected here on one disc?
