    Mitch Miller Christmas Album was one of the best. It brings me back to my childhood.

      You know that album gets a solid “5” in the Amazon reviews? Yes, Xmas for me would not be Christmas without Mitch or Phil Spector later on.

      Remember the tear-out lyric sheets inside the gatefold?

      Mitch of course refused to sign Bob Dylan to Columbia Records back when he was A & R there. I think he was overruled by John Hammond and Goddard Lieberson. Maybe the story’s just apocryphal, but it’s a good one.

    And maybe that’s why Dylan was cool about his Nobel Prize?!? I remember the Mitch Miller and the Gang album cover. Mitch had a Santa hat on I think.
