Vintage Christmas LPs for Your Holiday Party

I’ll admit it.  I love Christmas music and have been known to turn it on all year round.  But I’m particular to the music that can only be found on the old vinyl LPs.  For a true retro holiday party, consider playing these albums in the background.

  1. Ever-present Christmas music is one of the great scruges of my life, but I do recall fondly how much Grandmother loved her Christmas albums.

    Andy Williams was a favorite. I think the other favorite was Engleburt Humperdink. Oh, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

    I miss her.

  2. I usually only listen to the radio in the car but had it set to “The Christmas Music Station” yesterday. After a couple of hours of having it on in the background, I turned it off. It was horrible! They have a rotation that seemed to emphasize about five songs with horrid commercials. *gah!*

    I went back to my more traditional listening formats 🙂

  3. I love Christmas music, but some is too pensive for me. I was shopping at an antique mall today and the tape they were playing seemed like ongoing sadness. I was glad to leave.

    I noticed “The King’s Men” on the first album you feature here. I love listening to them on the old “Fibber McGee and Molly” shows and am in the process of researching one of their Christmas songs. I don’t have any of the albums above, but I have some others — perhaps more ’60s than ’50s.

    Thanks for the memories.
