A Demand Release: Supremes Christmas Ad, 1965

We’re less than a week away from Thanksgiving — and I don’t know about you, but for me that means it’s finally time to pull out my various versions of Merry Christmas by The Supremes and keep them spinning for the duration of the holiday season.  The fine folks at Motown Select gave us a great gift last year with a digital re-release containing the mono and stereo mixes of the album, plus all of the additional Christmas songs recorded by The Supremes.  If you haven’t downloaded it yet — it’s worth it for the mono “White Christmas” alone.

Of all the great songs placed on Merry Christmas, Motown pulled the silly “Children’s Christmas Song” as a single.  Below is an ad I came across in the December 4, 1965 issue of  Billboard promoting both that single and the album.  Enjoy it — and don’t forget to give The Supremes a few spins this season.
