JOHNNY MARKS
Color record sleeve for Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, with 7-inch 45 RPM record, signed by songwriter Johnny Marks
Record Sleeve signed: "Merry Christmas/Johnny Marks", 7x8. Record included. In 1947, Johnny Marks (1909-1985) was asked to write a song based on Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, a poem written by his brother-in-law Robert L. May. Marks (1909-1985, born in Mount Vernon, New York), who began songwriting in 1935, founded St. Nicholas Music, a music publishing company in 1949. That year, Gene Autry first introduced Marks' best-known song, Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer (1949) at Madison Square Garden. Marks wrote the song in 1947, when his brother-in-law, Robert L. May received the copyright from Montgomery Ward (May had created the character in 1939, when the department store chain tapped him to write a Christmas story that they could hand out to customers as a promotional gimmick).Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer has been recorded over 500 times, with over 150 million copies sold in every major language. Other Christmas songs by Marks include I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day (1956), Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree (1958), a huge hit for Brenda Lee, who first recorded it for Decca Records), Silver and Gold (1962) and A Holly Jolly Christmas (1962). Marks was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1972. Fine condition.
