A Christmas Gift For You
Though not quite getting the same amount of airplay in my childhood household as Sergio Franchi's "Panis Angelicus" or Lou Monte's "Dominick The Donkey," it's safe to say "A Christmas Gift For You," or what is more affectionately referred to as Phil Spector's Christmas Album" is one of the most beloved records of all time.
The Wall Of Sound was made for this collection of tunes, and nothing prior has ever sounded so joyous. But how many of you have heard this classic in glorious stereo? Taken from a very rare CD I found in a trunk in the basement of the Emperor Of Japan's house, here is "A Christmas Gift To You" in Stereo.
Trust me on this, you non-believers.
