A Very Merry ChristmasA Very Merry Christmas is Bobby Vinton's ninth studio album and first Christmas album, released in October 1964. Vinton had released a four-track Christmas EP which entered the charts the previous year, containing none of the tracks included on A Very Merry Christmas. Due to Billboard editorial policy, it was held off the regular Top LPs chart, but reached #13 on the Christmas Albums chart. The album was reissued on CD in 1995, and again in 2015 as the expanded A Very Merry Christmas: The Complete Epic Christmas Collection.
There were two singles to come from this album: "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle" and "Dearest Santa".
