That Christmas Feeling (Columbia Special Products for JCPenney, 1973)

I swear between Columbia and RCA, these two former rivals (ironically, they're now both subsidiaries of Sony Music) were in a race to tie in as many custom Christmas compilation albums for retail businesses as possible in the '70s.

Columbia released albums for Goodyear, JCPenney, A&P, Safeway, Firestone and several others. RCA had Firestone, True Value Hardware, Radio Shack, Piggly Wiggly and others.

Most of these compilations contained music heard on older compilations, but with different track listings.
