The Colonel Sanders Christmas Albums

Kentucky Fried Chicken holiday bucket and lid, circa late 1960s.
The 1960s and '70s will always be the heyday of the Christmas album loss leaderTire companies were using Christmas records to entice customers. Department and grocery stores too. If it was round with grooves and played at 33 1/3 RPM, you were likely getting extra business with it.

Colonel Sanders was also bitten by the Christmas vinyl bug. And released his own series of Christmas compilation albums through RCA from 1967 to 1969.



There was even an Australian pressing of the 1968 edition!

Here's the 1969 edition (the last in the series.)
