    I don't particularly like it but it doesn't seem like Christmas without a gallon jug of it in the fridge.

    Perhaps spurred on by Goodyear, B.F. Goodrich, in conjunction with A&M Records released this Christmas goodie, SOMETHING FESTIVE.

    To this day, it still generates inquiries about the Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 "The Christmas Song".



    The album always gets a play from me during the Christmas season.

    I was getting out the Christmas tree ornaments today and ran across two cassette compilations I don't even remember making!
    One is a tape with Nat King Cole's Christmas album on one side, with Doris Day's Christmas album on the flip.
    The other is a tape of two of the Goodyear Christmas albums.

    Many of my favorites mentioned here already but I have to say that every year I have to listen to "The Dean Martin Christmas Album" and "Paul Revere & The Raiders A Christmas Present ....And Past"

    ...feeling happy that the average music listener is finally hearing some sophisticated, jazz harmony. For 25 days each year, people who would never choose to subject themselves to major 7 chords and tritone substitutes, are forced to hear them. Of course, most people should listen to more jazz than they do, but at least, for one month, there's no escaping it.
