Elvis Presley - Elvis' Christmas Album

RCA (1957)

Used bin record, shoddy conditioned cover, but the vinyl is in surprisingly nice shape all things considered. I love Christmas music and always have. I realize that it seems to be a love it or hate it proposition to most folks, but I definitely fall on the side of loving it. I have my standbys that i\I always go back to and I am pretty much a traditionalist when it comes to my Christmas music. I want to hear the old stuff from the 40's, 50's & 60's. Not typically into the newer stuff, but I guess there are a few exceptions.

Side A of this album rules. Energetic Christmas songs full of that Elvis swagger, but side B is kind of a bummer. It's mostly slow depressing songs. When Christmas time comes around, I guess I just prefer my songs to be about Santa Claus. Anyway for the budget price I paid, I'm sure the A side will get plenty of activity from me for years to come.
