Three wise guys

IMG_5974

“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”.   Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Frank Sinatra and Keely Smith.  A rare EP and picture sleeve from Reprise Records in the UK from the album of the same name.   Cover photo from the Warner Bros. film “Robin and the Seven Hoods”.  In addition to Frank singing the title song, Sammy swings “Jingle Bells”, Dean croons “Peace on Earth and Silent Night” and Keely Smith (one of my faves with or without Louis Prima) serves up “The First Noel”.
