Limited 180 gram red vinyl LP pressing. In 1963, visionary producer Phil Spector, then at the peak of his creativity and cultural influence, created one of the first, and still one of the greatest, rock 'n' roll Christmas albums. Using the artist roster of his Philles label, the Ronettes, the Crystals, Darlene Love and Bob B. Soxx and the Blue Jeans, and the legendary studio musicians of the Wrecking Crew, Spector applied his fabled Wall of Sound to a set of Christmas pop standards and holiday-themed originals. The resulting album brilliantly merges the holiday spirit with the singular sonic uplift of the Spector sound. Highlights include the Ronettes' bubbly reworkings of "Sleigh Ride," "Frosty the Snowman" and "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," the Crystals' upbeat renditions of "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" and "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and Darlene Love's soulful readings of "Winter Wonderland," "White Christmas" and the Ellie Greenwich/Jeff Barry/Phil Spector composition "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)."
