It’s Christmas!: 50 FESTIVE FAVOURITES (2cd set)

Artist: Various Artists
Format: 2CD
Bar-code: 5060143495151
Cat No: NOT2CD515


The all-star choice we’ve assembled to serenade you ranges from calypso king Harry Belafonte through crooners, jazz legends and close-harmony singers to folk group The Springfields. Country guitar maestro Chet Atkins weaves his instrumental magic to bring us ‘Jolly Old St. Nicholas’, while even the King, Elvis Presley, who released a Christmas album in 1957 as his fourth long-player, gets in on the act. The songs on this compilation may be half a century or so old, but all retain the time-honoured flavour of the season. With the odd exception, they don’t make them like this anymore. And while some of the performers may no longer be with us, the songs they sang so memorably will live on.
