OT Question of the Day: Your Favorite Christmas Album

Here’s a fun question of the day.

What’s your favorite Christmas album?

I like the older stuff. The classics from the 50s and 60s. That said, it’s hard for me to pick out an absolute favorite.

One that I just bought that is really pretty is

Percy Faith Christmas Is
Percy Faith’s “Christmas Is…”

It’s got a very nostalgic sound to it (probably because it’s from 1966). It’s kind of like elevator music so it may not be for everyone. I love his rendition of “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” and “Silver Bells.”

If rock is more your style…

Chris Isaak Chris Isaak Christmas
Chris Isaak’s “Chris Isaak Christmas”

This is a great disk.

Finally, two more that are excellent are from Andy Williams…

Andy Williams The Andy Williams Christmas Album
Andy Williams – “The Andy Williams Christmas Album”

Andy Williams Merry Christmas
Andy Williams – “Merry Christmas”

I know that’s not just one selection but when you have as many CDs as I do (1,700+), it’s hard to pick out an absolute favorite. Yes, I realize 1,700+ is an excessive number of CDs. It’s my weakness.

Now, it’s your turn…

  1. O My–how much will it date me to say that my all time favorite Christmas Album is Joan Baez’ “Noel.” Has anyone ever sung “Ave Maria” any better than she does on this LP?
