ONE OF MY FAVORITE CHRISTMAS TUNES IS ELVIS PRESLEY’S CLASSIC…”IF EVERYDAY WAS LIKE CHRISTMAS” FROM 1966.  THIS AMAZING RECORDING IS ELVIS AT HIS EMOTIONAL BEST…THE SONG WAS WRITTEN BY RED WEST AND GLEN SPREEN.  ELVIS RECORDED THE SONG ON JUNE 10, 1966, AT RCA STUDIO IN NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE.

ALTHOUGH THE SINGLE DID NOT CHART…IT HAS BEEN CREDITED WITH SALES OF OVER 1 MILLION COPIES.  THE RCA SINGLE WAS RELEASED ON A STANDARD RELEASE ON (RCA-47-8950) IN NOVEMBER OF 1966 AND ON RCA GOLD STANDARD SERIES AS (RCA 447-0681) IN MAY OF 1972.  THE FLIP SIDE OF THE SINGLE ON BOTH RELEASES WAS…”HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE” FROM HIS 1963 MOVIE…IT HAPPENED AT THE WORLD’S FAIR.  IT DID NOT CHART.

WE ARE PROUD TO PRESENT TO YOU…ELVIS PRESLEY…SINGING HIS CLASSIC CHRISTMAS RECORDING OF…”IF EVERYDAY WAS LIKE CHRISTMAS”…JUST LISTEN TO THE WORDS AND THE EMOTION OF THIS WONDERFUL RECORDING…ELVIS PRESLEY…”THE KING OF ROCK AND ROLL” AT HIS BEST….

If Every Day Was Like Christmas

TILL THE NEXT TIME—JOE (JOE T)
