Besides the version he recorded for WMCA in New York which was released on 45 in November 1965 (Amy 944), I also have a different version he recorded while he was at WCBS in New York. This version appears on the WCBS-FM 101.1: The Ultimate Christmas Album, Vol. 6 compilation CD and features revised lyrics. I'm trying to date it, but can't find any information. All I know is Harrison was at WCBS from 1980-2005. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a version of Harry Harrison's famous rendition of "May You Always" on the WCBS-FM 101.1: The Ultimate Christmas Album, Vol. 6 CD that has different - politically corrected - lyrics than the original he cut at WMCA-FM back in 1965.  Specifically, "sweepstakes" is changed to "lottery," "Merry Christmas" is changed to "Happy Holidays," and a reference to cigarettes has been removed completely.  I guess this is a newer version he did during his tenure at WCBS, but I'm curious to know when it was recorded.  Does anybody know?

*The above two posts were the merger of two different threads from 2012 & 2019*

Sorry, I had forgotten all about that earlier inquiry. Seven years is a long time, I guess.

No problem at all, John. I combined the two threads because you had additional details in the 2012 post you didn't have in the 2019 post.
