Little Drummer Boy #8

Twentieth-Century Fox Records label contracted Harry Simeone asking that he make a Christmas album in 1958. Simeone assembled a group he called “The Harry Simeone Chorale” and began his search for material. Simeone was introduced to an obscure song by friend and credited song co-author Henry Onorati, titled “Carol of the Drum”. Simeone changed the title to “The Little Drummer Boy”. He recorded the song for his album Sing We Now of Christmas. The single “The Little Drummer Boy” quickly became extremely popular and rose to number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
