Blogmass 2012 Day Five - Wishes Granted

Here's another of my favorite style of Christmas record - the sponsored album. This time it's the Grants department store chain getting in on the act. There are 8 albums in this annual series that began in 1967. Grants gave good value for the money - 16 tracks. Content-wise, it's mostly the usual suspects, although I'll admit that I had to look up Leslie Uggams. Christmas Chopsticks was new to me, as well.
