THE CHRISTMAS ALBUM -18 ORIGINAL CHRISTMAS HITS NOX 1 (-85) UK

Christmas sampler issued though UK EMI:s "Now!" budget serie and to me a cheap and easy way getting many nowadays rare Christmas singles from known acts together with a bundle of good music. It stretches from Bing Crosby to Band Aid and beyond - including Lennon, McCartney, Wizzard, Slade, Beach Boys, Greg Lake and Queen among others. For once also with the first vinyl issue here being the most comprehensive with eighteen cuts while the vinly reissue had seventeen - omitting Greg Lake's "I believe In Father Christmas" (originally thought as a protest against the commercialization of Christmas) - and the CD version (CDNOX 1) as a sixteen track, leaving both Lake's song and the Lennon track behind. Sadly the the audio on this press is rather dull and even, still fitting as background to seasonal chores laying ground for a rock'n'roll Christmas. First UK with label as shown here and thin glossy cover. (CXÅ*) (SÄM*) (QÄN*)
