Description

The first, and best, of Elvis’s seasonal offerings, made when Presley was still within touching distance of his early, raw rockabilly years: listen to the intense, bluesy opener, Santa Claus Is Back in Town, for proof. Volume 3 featured a rare recording of the Pink Floyd song " Have a Cigar" by the Foo Fighters with Brian May. The expanded, two-disc 1984 version is a veritable schmaltz blizzard of vaguely terrifying good cheer. Record industry titan Jimmy Iovine organized this all-star benefit album for the Special Olympics in 1987.

It is notable for being perhaps the only widely available compilation album that features Wolfstone, who feature with their song "Battle", credited as "The Battle". If you time it so you pass out while the album-ending instrumental “Christmas Blues” is rolling by, you may get lucky and sleep ’til New Year’s Eve. Ella Fitzgerald's classic holiday album includes a number of high-energy, spirited takes on the Christmas songs that most of us love and know well, including "Jingle Bells" and "Let It Snow! Motown culls tunes from the Miracles, Supremes, Jacksons, Temptations, Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder, with highlights ranging from the Miracles' subtly grooving "Jingle Bells" to Wonder's lovely "What Christmas Means to Me" to the Supremes' awesomely pedagogic "Children's Christmas Song," featuring Diana Ross in Sunday school-teacher mode leading a kids choir.People’s preferences in Christmas music tend to be even more deeply personal than usual, bound up with memories and family traditions, but the music on A Charlie Brown Christmas sweeps everyone under its tree skirt: it is alternately sophisticated and as rough-hewn as a school nativity play, but always spellbinding. But Tyler, the Creator's hip-hop holiday offering, which debuted alongside 2018's The Grinch, managed to charm and delight grown rap fans and children alike. Christina Aguilera swings by for a jazzy "Baby, It's Cold Outside," where Cee Lo injects the line "Baby, it's bad out there/ No cab's to be had out there" with a sly tinge of urban realism; "All I Need Is Love," with the Muppets, interpolates the Sesame Street classic "Manamana" into a hip-hop-soul jam; and Cee Lo locks in with Rod Stewart and New Orleans hornman Trombone Shorty for a super smooth "Merry, Christmas Baby. Released in 1957, the same year as Elvis Presley's hit Christmas album, Sinatra's first Christmas record is like a conservative op-ed in response to the King's subtly radical bumrush. The release of their first Christmas album was met with a similar degree of excitement, as the pair's smokey lounge vocal stylings are well-suited both for one another and for holiday classics.

Each year, the works of Slade, Bing Crosby, and whichever cover artist John Lewis has succeeded in pushing to the top of the charts, all find themselves lodged in the minds of even the most reluctant Scrooges. In addition to their signature layered vocal stylings, the band worked with a 41-piece orchestra to put together a Christmas record that can only be described in terms as expansive as the sounds themselves: lush, rich, and abundant.

The exquisite melancholy of Thorn’s voice turns out to be perfectly suited to a superbly curated selection of seasonal songs. Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, who both have fans among huge swaths of the American public, were destined to record a Christmas album at some point or another — and 1984 was the year.Brian May had help in compiling the album from several other musicians, alongside Ashley Abram (who normally compiles all The Best.

This wildly successful Christmas album is the brainchild of composer and producer Chip Davis, who curated its largely instrumental takes on Christmas classics after years of working on his own jazz-rock chops. A Christmas album you could listen to all year round: a baroque psychedelic soul opus packed with lavish, adventurous orchestration courtesy of producer Charles Stepney, plus Hendrix-y guitar solos (it features the most freaked-out version of Silent Night imaginable) and Minnie Riperton’s heavenly voice. We bring you an Irie Christmas and a dancehall New Year," Miller sings on this bright, irreverent set, recorded in 1978, just two years before the Inner Circle frontman's untimely death at age 27.Brown, who died on December 25, 2006, recorded three Christmas-themed albums during his creative peak: 1966's James Brown Sings Christmas Songs, 1968's A Soulful Christmas and 1970's Hey America It's Christmas.
