A Christmas Gift For You From Phil Spector

Maybe the best rock 'n' roll Christmas album ever, A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector was recorded in 1963, at the height of the producer's Wall of Sound era. Pairing force-of-nature singers like Darlene Love and The Ronettes' Veronica Bennett with Jack Nitzsche's dense arrangements, Spector delivered powerhouse takes on holiday classics, from a rocking "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town" to an L.A.-centric, R&B-driven version of "White Christmas." Love's gospel-tinged anthem "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" is still one of the season's finest songs.
