Found Yesterday...On My Wall Today...In my Soul Forever

From 2009:
I love shopping in Los Feliz because I never know what I may find. Take this LP for instance, this was purchased late yesterday afternoon for ONE AMERICAN DOLLAR! It now hangs proudly on my living room wall with 5 other holiday-themed LP.
Yes SING WITH MARCY - apparently America's favorite ventriloquist/evangelist! Marcy Tigner is the lady dressed like Mrs. Claus and "Little Marcy" is her talking dolly friend. These two creepy Christian crooners duet on ditties with titles like Oh Say, But I'm Glad!, When We See Christ, Little Feet Be Careful, The Lord is Counting on You and the ever popular Is It Fair? Funny thing is this isn't even a Christmas album, but one of many, many Marcy discs that were issued in the 1960s and 1970s.

Clearly the Marcys had quiet a prolific musical career judging from the dozen album pictured above (click to enlarge). Some of their other tunes are When Mr. Satan Knocks at My Heart's Door, I'm Glad I'm a Christian, Everybody Ought to Love Jesus and that old chestnut Jesus Loves the Little Children. In addition to records, Little Marcy also appeared in books, jigsaw puzzles and was merchandised as both a doll and a hand puppet. And now with no further ado, here's Little Marcy.
And if you can stand it...

Hello Doug-
I'm looking for free downloads of obscure (and rockin') Christmas music. Do you know of any links?

I find ventriloquist dummies extremely spooky. I cannot see why anyone would enjoy watching them.

Of course, on a record, you don't have to worry about your lips moving either, do you?

Creepy, creepy.
