A Ding Dong Dandy Christmas - The Three Suns

White Christmas
The Three Suns
A Ding Dong Dandy Christmas
RCA Victor LPM-2054

Out of the million or so Christmas albums released to the world, I think that I have discovered my favorite. From the suggestive cover, to the inventive music, this holiday set actually got me into the ding dong dandy holiday mood!

Each song is a cool little experiment.

From Billboard - November 2, 1959: The Three Suns offer a different sound in this bright holiday package, utilizing chimes, bells, an oboe and two tubas. Here you have an exotic version of "White Christmas," plus amusing versions of other seasonal fare, including "The Chipmunk Song," "Jingle Bell Rock" and "Winter Wonderland." Good off-beat programming for jocks in search of something new in yule wax.
