Something a bit more mainstream today, but we make no apologies for selecting Phil Spector’s A Christmas Gift For You as today’s Cool Yule candidate,

Very different from James Brown’s Funky Christmas because this album does offer up the Christmas standards – including White Christmas, Frosty The Snowman, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer and Silent Night – but it works because they all get the Wall Of Sound treatment – and 43 years later, it still sounds as fresh as ever.

And now is the best time to buy it, as it’s been reissued as a double CD, coupled with a Best Of Phil Spector album. And every home should have one of those.
