All I Want For Christmas Is A Steady Eddie

Barbara Mann

Play-Mor Music - BMI

Honey B Records P-106
A product of Buzz Records, Inc. N.Y.C.

Trusonic Fidelity

Also issued of Buzz Records, the main label, presumably at the same time (1959).  
Buzz Records owner (or part-owner) was Bobby Smith who was a key member of the Erskine Hawkins Orchestra and an in-demand session man, this alto-sax master made a number of his own recordings - cuts that have become highly sought-after rarities.

There was a Barbara Mann on Count Records (" Yea Sugar Baby // Choctawhatchee Bay") but this may be another singer.

Songwriters are :

  • Mary Ann Curzio (who recorded on Pontiac Records as Mary Ann Curtis)
  • Leo Armand Jaques
  • Loretta Clemens Tupper, a radio entertainer of the 1930's and 1940's who appeared later in television commercials,
