Happy Birthday, Baby Jesus

Sympathy for the Record Industry SFTRI-271 10", released 1993 (U.S.)

Sympathy for the Record Industry SFTRI-396 2xCD, released 1995 (U.S.)

Contains the Rocket from the Crypt song "Cancel Christmas"

Greatest Christmas record ever. Hands down. This 1993 10" had a number of highlights in addition to the Rocket song. This only exists on black vinyl, and can be found without too much drama. The test pressing is on mint green marble vinyl. This record was paired with its sequel and re-released later as a double CD.
