Brief History :
Elvis' Christmas Album was reissued two years after its first release, replacing the iconic cover of the original with a close-up of Elvis as he posed against an outdoor, snowy backdrop with a new catalogue number. The album continued to reach the album charts each year until 1962, eventually selling more than three million copies in the U.S.
