    Description

    R&B Compilation LP Group of 2 (1956-60). Two rare compilation albums. The first, "Merry Christmas Baby" (Hollywood Records 501 Mono, 1956) has to be one of the earliest Christmas-themed multi-artist compilation albums by R&B vocalists. Romantic Christmas selections are offered by Lowell Fulson, Lloyd Glenn, Charles Brown, Mabel Scott, Johnny Moore's Blazers, and Jimmy Witherspoon. The cover still has the shrinkwrap intact except at the record opening. Condition: NM 8/ NM 8. The second album here is actually a reissue of the earlier, rare recording "Best Of Rhythm and Blues". It's renamed "Whoppers!" (Jubilee 1119 Mono, 1960) and features Billy Ward and the Dominoes, Sonny Till and the Orioles, Jimmy Ricks and the Ravens, and the Four Tunes. Not too shabby, eh? And even better - this copy is still sealed! From the GRT Collection.
