Best Of The Big Bands: Christmas On The Bandstand
by Various Artists
Released: Jan 1994
Drop the lines at the mall and the thoughts of an overly commercialized holiday season and go back to a time when Christmas songs could be serious, sexed-up or swinging and sometimes all three at once -- and still have a nostalgic power all their own. The musical equivalent of Jimmy Stewart wandering into Nick's wild roadhouse on New Year's Eve in It's a Wonderful Life.
