UK Christmas No1s

I love Christmas No1s and have collected them over the years on 78, vinyl and CD. 

Here's the next three songs.

My Harry Belafonte single has always been in our household. I grew up with it and also with the LP  'David frost introduces a Christmas record for Oxfam.'  They both used to get played loads in the run up to Christmas.

I found my other two singles within the month of the radio show challenge in 1993 from a local record collectors shop for £1 each.

on youtube I've found an original programme with Johnny Ray and he sings a couple of songs but it's the first one that was the Christmas no1 and sorry about the Harry B video but I didn't have much choice!


Conway Twitty - Its Only Make Believe
1958




Harry Belafonte - Mary's Boy Child
1957



Johnny Ray - Just Walkin' In The Rain
1956
