A Very Merry Christmas was 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 Billboard LP listings. It reached #13 on a Christmas version of the Billboard Hot 200 list of popular albums. The CD, not currently in print, is a valuable collectors' item. Some of the tracks are available on the in-print disc Kissin' Christmas.
There were two singles to come from this album: "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle" and "Dearest Santa".
