Billy Vaughn "Have Yourself a Merry, Merry Christmas" album 1968



Here is a lovely album of choral Christmas music titled "Billy Vaughn - Have Yourself a Merry, Merry Christmas". It was published in 1968 by Billy Vaughn and Bunny Robyn and has some very nice renditions of popular Christmas songs and also a few not-so-well-known Christmas songs.

I also love the album cover. It reminds me a lot of one that I posted under the title of Hollywood Bowl Symphony Orchestra - Christmas Music LP. Do you think it was done by the same artist? They were recorded only 5 years apart, so it seems very possible.
