A Fab Four Christmas: Your New Favorite Holiday Album
I'm not sure how I stumbled across this gem. I think Little Steven may have played a song or two on one of his stellar Underground Garage Christmas specials. What I remember in vivid detail was the difficulty in obtaining a copy. It seems that Laserlight, the budget label that had released this set, pressed about 352 copies.
I know very little about the Fab Four, except that it may just be a Fab One, Michael Amador. It's more than just a tribute to The Beatles, it's bloody genius. You need to hear it. Please trust me on this one. I am giving this the Burning Wood Guarantee.
At the moment, The Fab Four Christmas CDs are fetching between $30 and $60 for used copies on Amazon. Here are both. Let me know what you think.
Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer
Joy To The World
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
Away In A Manger
Good King Wenceslas
It Came Upon A Midnight Clear
Frosty The Snowman
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
The Christmas Song
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
The Little Drummer Boy
What Child Is This
Rockin'Around The Christmas Tree
The whole shebang is in the ZIP FILE, but you can listen to Feliz Navidad & Away In A Manger, so you believe I am not just foaming at the mouth again.
