About “Silent Night”

From a Nov. 26, 1966 article:

Columbia Records is running an all-out advertising and merchandising campaign for Barbra Streisand's new single, Silent Night. A special sleeve carries rave reviews of her concert performance of the carol, while a brochure for deejay mailings also features reviews. Columbia also has designed a special browser rack for in-store use...
