A PLASTIC STAR FOR AN ALUMINUM CHRISTMAS TREE- OH THE JOY!!
Very old school. Aluminum Christmas trees were first available in 1958. I was nine. I think we had one once, but, I cannot swear to it. They appeared and disappeared quickly. However, they are making a return in today's markets for vagabond souls searching for innovation from the mid century. That era of product design brought us all the great things that we look back on and wish we still had - big fin cars, funky, yet sleek Jetson furniture and great, great music.
I have been a die hard fan of Michael Franks since I heard his classic Popsicle Toes. His combination of great jazz arranging and his unique voice make him a perfect artist for Christmas tunes. Today, I hope you like this very unique Christmas tune about a plastic star for an aluminum Christmas tree.
