  Merry Christmas
Bing Crosby
Decca Records DL8128

Early pressing, probably 1955, with all black Decca label and DL 8128 on upper left corner front cover.

"When Decca (and the rest of the industry) abandoned the 10-inch LP format in 1955, it created a 12-inch LP version of Merry Christmas, catalogue Decca DL-8128, with four additional songs and the now familiar cover with Crosby in his Santa Claus stocking cap as pictured above. The new songs were "Silver Bells" and "Mele Kalikimaka," both recorded in September of 1950, and "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas" and "Christmas in Killarney," both recorded on October 1, 1951. The album's track listing was also adjusted slightly, with "Faith of Our Fathers" now preceding "I'll Be Home for Christmas." This issue has remained unchanged to present; first pressings of the album were released on Decca's all-black label with the catalog number in the top left corner of the front cover."
