EDITORS’ NOTES

The 13-year-old star who'd later be known as "Little Miss Dynamite" recorded the irresistible title track for this holiday-themed anthology in 1958, and its jubilant rock 'n' roll perk hasn't aged a day since. Her playful sass sells "I'm Gonna Lasso Santa Claus" and the sugar-high pop fantasias "A Marshmallow World" and "Strawberry Snow." The career-spanning collection follows Lee as she develops into a mature country singer with a knack for compelling storytelling and heartbreaking balladry ("Christmas Will Be Just Another Lonely Day").

Doesn't Get Any Better

I absolutely love Brenda Lee's version of Rockin' around the Christmas Tree. There isn't anyone who can sing it better than her. Some of the other songs on the album are average, but it's worth every cent.

Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree

oh my gosh!!!! I have loved thgis song since i was 4 years old! me and my mom would have a tradition of putting on rockin around the christmas tree on christmas day and getting a guitar and actually "rock" around the christmas tree!! oh my gosh this is the best christmas song EVER! this is always going to be my favorite christmas song for life!!

P.S.- I'm seriously kinda related to Brenda Lee. She is my dad's aunt! either that or great aunt i don't remember which

Includes a lost Jem!!!

We've all heard and love "Rockin around the Christmas Tree" but there is a little known track on this album that I cannot begin my holidays without-- I urge you to get the track "Christmas will be just another lonely Day"... I get goosebumps just thinkin' about it and every time I hear it it makes me smile!! I hope you enjoy this kitschy, wonderful track that has become a part of my family's holiday tradition-
