For the ADVENTure in Carols I like to throw on unfamiliar Christmas songs, but I think a Christmas music mix has to have some familiar songs to help you connect to the traditions inherent in the season. However, I do like to find versions of familiar songs that may not be ones you’ve heard.
I hope that this is one, The Little Drummer Boy by Bert Kaempfert and His Orchestra, from the 1963 album “Christmas Wonderland”.
