Album Art Flashback: Merry Christmas by Bing Crosby

bcrosb-whitec_08.jpgIt is safe to say that Merry Christmas by Bing Crosby is the grandfather of Christmas albums. Originally released in 1945, the album has been in release in various formats for 65 years. The album has sold over 15 million copies, and is the second best-selling Christmas album of all-time behind Elvis Presley's 1957 holiday album Elvis' Christmas Album.

The current version of the album is titled White Christmas. The title was changed in 1986 by Universal Music Group. However, the the contents of the album was not changed. A remastered mono version was released in 1992 and reissued in 1995. The 1995 version (above right) is the one that is currently in distribution.

Along with the title change, falling snowflakes were added to the classic album art. The cover below is the 1973 version that was released after merged their labels. It is an original scan of the album that was played in my home when I was a child. I believe we had an earlier Decca version that wore out after years of play.
