Every day between now and New Year’s Day I’m selecting tunes or carols you won’t hear on FM Radio but they are certainly deserving of airplay.
In 1957 Elvis Presley released an album filled with his versions of Christmas classics. It has sold more than 17 million copies in the United States alone, more than 20 million worldwide.
So along comes 1971 and Elvis releases another Christmas album, and why not.
It was certified Gold on November 4, 1977, Platinum on December 1, 1977, 2x Platinum on May 20, 1988, and 3x Platinum on July 15, 1999. Remember, Elvis died in August of 1977. His popularity never died.
