A Christmas Eve Gift to You


It's Christmas Eve and anyone who has been following this Blog for any period of time should know the drill by now.

It has now become traditional that I feature the greatest Christmas record ever made namely Phil Spector's A Christmas Gift to You on this day. Indeed, even the late great Townes Van Zandt has had to stand aside.

Can I take this opportunity to wish all of you and yours a very Merry Christmas.
Eat, drink and be merry and I hope that Santa is good to you and brings you lots of records.

See you on the other side.

  1. Wouldn't be Christmas without the gift from Phil(les).

    May your sleigh bells jangle as you walk in a South of Scotland winter wonderland! Merry Christmas.

  2. Perfect! Thanks for another year of great words and music. Wishing you and Mrs CC a fabulous Christmas!

  3. Hope Santa is good to you too and brings you lots of records, as well as lots of good records to people who don't want them which will be duly donated to those wonderful charity shops up your way...
    A very happy Christmas to you and Mrs CC.

  4. A fine tradition, CC. I have listened to this album front to back several times this year... between all incarnations of Terry Hall. Hope Santa delivers many round artefacts to you. - Brian
