RARE & SCRATCHY ROCK 'N ROLL_149 – “THE GREATEST ROCK & ROLL CHRISTMAS ALBUM OF ALL TIME”
This is our sixth annual Xmas episode. We’re celebrating the season with a unique presentation of the LP that’s universally regarded as “The Greatest Rock & Roll Christmas Album Of All Time.” Musicologists, music critics, authors of books about rock and roll history, famed composers, and world-renowned performers are in general agreement that it’s the late record producer Phil Spector’s 1963 masterpiece – “A Christmas Gift For You From Philles Records.”
We’ll sample each and every cut on “A Christmas Gift For You From Philles Records.” All of those songs will be accompanied by the original versions by other artists that inspired Phil Spector to create his holiday opus. This is definitely a “Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll” exclusive.
We’re joined on this episode by a special guest expert who truly knows a thing or two about Christmas music – yes, you guessed it – Santa Claus.
