Best Christmas Albums on CD
A personal selection of Christmas music albums
Love them or hate them, most recording artists seem to have a Christmas Album somewhere in their back catalogue.
From massive selling classics such as Elvis Presley's 1957 album Elvis' Christmas Album (revisited in 2008 as a duets album) to Aimee Mann's melancholy One More Drifter in the Snow this is an unashamedly personal choice of some of my own favourites.
I hope you'll find one you enjoy...and please feel free to suggest your own in the guestbook at the end of the page!
