Campy Christmas Records

As I only had a couple of Christmas records and a USB record player last year, you could say that things have been a bit more entertaining after setting up my Grandma's old record player and going through her vintage collection.  I should clarify that in this case vintage doesn't mean hip or trendy.  It means old, kind of cheesy, and very German. 

I still have Frosty the Snowman and A Charlie Brown Christmas which were more recent finds, but I have to admit that I've really enjoyed getting to know Ivan Rebroff, the Jack Halloran Singers, and James Last to name a few.  In fairness, none of the records sound as surprising as their album covers look.  Christmas music hasn't evolved nearly as much as style has, and frankly that's what makes it fun.
