In 1954, The Drifters released a cover version of the song
that showcased the talents of lead singer
Clyde McPhatter and the bass of Bill Pinkney.
Their recording of the song peaked at number 2
on Billboard's Rhythm & Blues Records chart in December 1954
(it also returned to the same chart in the next two years).
In December 1955, "White Christmas" became the Drifters'
first of 34 singles to register on the mainstream
Billboard Top 100 singles chart, reaching number 80.
For decades, the Drifters' version of the song was primarily heard on
R&B radio stations, getting little exposure elsewhere.
