"The Little Drummer Boy, a Christmas festival, the Harry Simeone Chorale" (1963). I'm guessing it's the most famous version of this song. This album was first issued under another name in 1958. The song was originally titled "Carol of the Drum", written by Katherine Kennicott Davis and was published as based upon a traditional Czech carol. Harry Simeone made some small changes to the song and retitled it "The Little Drummer Boy". Classic. Check out the album here.
Where are we on our count? 3 down, 7 to go. "Merry Christmas, Johnny Mathis" (1958), "Midwinter" (2001), "The Little Drummer Boy, a Christmas festival, the Harry Simeone Chorale" (1963).
I feel so strongly about graffiti in public lavatories that I signed a partition - What? Why are you looking here? The joke's self-contained in the headline. And it's GOLDEN.
