37. Phil Spector - A Christmas Gift For You

Release Date: 1963
Label: Phillies

It's very difficult to judge this album without judging Phil Spector himself, but it's something that I've chosen to do. Whatever your subsequent opion of Spector, there is no denying the fact that he was one of the greatest producers of the 20th century. To many 'hip and trendy' music fans, this is their favourite Christmas record, and whilst it is good, you'll be better of with the usual compilations of Wham, Band Aid and Wizzard if you really want to get into the festive spirit. Have this as a back-up, but don't expect it to be the go to album when the family are round for the holidays.

Rating: 6.5/10
Favourite Track: The Ronettes - Sleigh Ride
