So there I was at the thriftstore, and saw two of the Firestone albums I was speaking of a couple days ago. But then came this.. volume 3 of the series of Christmas albums that grocery store giant A&P released, this one in 1972. Since there have never been A&P supermarkets in the state of Washington, this is something I’ve never been exposed to before and wasn’t aware existed. (Though I am not surprised, since I have seen a few by their West Coast rival Safeway.) I also wasn’t aware that after 150 years of operation, A&P went defunct in 2015 or that they created Woman’s Day magazine.

And in looking at the track list, I had to buy it. [Discogs]
