FaLaLaLaLa 2012 ADVENTure in Carols

Dec. 10 – The Three Suns – Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town (1959)

The album from which this track is taken, A Ding Dong Dandy Christmas, is one of the great secrets of Christmas music and an absolute fave of collectors. One of the reasons, is probably the cover. Once you’ve seen this in a record bin:

The Three Suns - A Ding Dong Dandy Christmas!

you pretty much need to own it….

UPDATE: Now you can own it on CD!

And the cover is a good indication of what’s inside. There are just amazingly fun and inventive arrangements of songs that you know really well but have never heard done quite like this. You really should listen to the whole album:
