W.O.C.K On Vinyl - Bing Crosby (White Christmas - 1954)

.
Before things get too serious here at Rock On Vinyl, I thought it might be fun to post a song at the end of each month, that could be categorized as being either Weird, Obscure, Crazy or just plain Korny.

.
White Christmas is a popular 1954 Christmas album recorded by Bing Crosby. The single "White Christmas" was the top selling song of all time until 1998 and is still the best selling Christmas song. The hit song topped the Billboard charts for 10 years and inspired a film of the same name. "White Christmas" has appeared on over 60 albums.
Note: Three of the tracks have the Andrew Sisters providing backing vocals
This WOCK on Vinyl posting is a little early this month, for obvious reasons. Of course the C stands for Christmas this time around, although I'm sure some of you might still see it as C in Crazy !
Either way, I hope you all have a joyful and safe Christmas.
Don't forget to leave those comments
