Blue Colored 180g Vinyl Pressing of The King's 1957 Christmas Classic Mastered by Joe Reagoso & Manufactured at RTI!
Wild rock 'n' roll and the spirituality of Christmas are impossible to bring together musically, one might think. But Elvis Presley, who in the 1950s was climbing as steadily up the ladder of success as Father Christmas coursed the sky in his sleigh, certainly pulled off this feat with his 1957 Diamond-certified Elvis' Christmas Album and its timeless mixture of popular Christmas songs and seasonal evergreens.
The King kicks off the proceedings with a rocking version of "Santa Claus Is Back In Town," followed by the soulful groove of "White Christmas," the melancholy ballad "I'll Be Home For Christmas," blues rocker "Blue Christmas" and the heartfelt numbers "O Little Town Of Bethlehem" and "Silent Night." The album also features a nice helping of gospel standards like "(There'll Be) Peace In The Valley" and "It Is No Secret (What God Can Do)."
In total, the album showcases twelve wonderful Elvis Presley recordings which have truly gone on to become definitive classics by any measure of popular music. And just in time for the 2016-2017 holiday season, Friday Music is reissuing Elvis' Christmas Album on limited edition colored 180g vinyl, mastered by Joe Reagoso and manufactured at RTI.
