Double LP! First Time on Vinyl!

Christmas Cocktails (Part One) features delightful Christmas music by artists such as Dean Martin, Julie London, Lou Rawls, Nat King Cole & more! Available on vinyl for the first time, this is the perfect soundtrack for a bachelor pad yuletide bash.

A perfect martini-and-mistletoe combo, Christmas Cocktails will gaily seduce you with its bevy of nostalgic and occasionally campy holiday fare. Vocal vixens Peggy Lee, Julie London (her "I'd Like You for Christmas" will melt the ice cubes in your fridge), Kay Starr, and Nancy Wilson join forces with perennial crooners such as Lou Rawls, Dean Martin, and the immortal Nat "King" Cole, along with a handful of instrumental big-band numbers and odd, at times cheese-ball-shaped jazz organ pieces from Jimmy McGriff and the flammable Eddie Dundstedter, among others.

But the essential item that makes plunking down your pelts for this very chi-chi set is none other than Billy May's lovably kitschy workout called "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer Mambo." It's a scream. Garishly retro and naughtily nostalgic, this kind of slinky Christmas gift should probably be illegal in many prudish states.

"...the perfect gift for the swinging hipster on your list." -Jason Ankeny, allmusic.com
