In 1963, Phil Spector matched force-of-nature artists like The Ronettes, The Crystals and Darlene Love with classic festive-season tunes and his Wall of Sound production. He hired Jack Nitzsche for the lilting arrangements and The Wrecking Crew for musical backing. The results still stun—from the rousing R&B version of “White Christmas” to the rockingly radicalised “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” to the giddily sexy “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus”. The album’s centrepiece is a blistering-hot version of “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)”, which could heat up even the coldest of nights.
The best Christmas CD bar none
This album has been around since 1963 and still no-one has made better versions of these carols. Phil Spector is at his best behind the desk, the Wrecking Crew and the assorted vocalists involved have created an album where Christmas music doesn't sound schmaltzy, or overdone, it sounds like real contemporary pop music. This record is an absolute classic and indispensible for the festive season.
