December 4: Phil Spector
Phil Spector - A Christmas Gift for You
Rightfully at (or near) the top of pretty much every "greatest Christmas album ever" list. Spector's signature wall-of-sound style is on full display here, and it's glorious. His style works perfectly for Christmas music, and the collection of artists here (Darlene Love, The Ronettes, The Crystals, and Bob E. Soxx & the Blue Jeans) is wonderful.
If you've never heard this album, you need to fix that. It works for all ages. If this album doesn't get you in the Christmas mood, nothing will.
"Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)"
"I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus"
"Santa Claus is Coming to Town"
