Phil Spector’s wall of sound meets the North Pole on this 1963 Christmas classic. At times a surreal look at the Holidays in balmy Los Angeles, A Christmas Gift for You nails it on every track. This, along with Elvis’s Christmas album, is the epitome of the tasteful “rock & roll Christmas album” without sounding neither ill conceived and/or corny. Working his magic with such Spector studio staples as The Ronettes, The Crystals, and a solo Darlene Love, the album has since organically worked itself into our cultural Holiday fabric.
