On October 30th, exclusively on vinyl, we present THE essential collection of Christmas Songs - together, for the first time on one double LP - a value-packed 35 fantastic festive favourites sounding better than ever.

The perfect gift that every vinyl collector will love or the perfect soundtrack to your own Christmas celebrations.

Side One celebrates the season with pop classic after pop classic. Queen kick things off with ‘Thank God It’s Christmas’ followed by timeless ’70s smashes: Elton John’s ‘Step Into Christmas’, Slade with ‘Merry Xmas Everybody’, Greg Lake’s epic ‘I Believe In Father Christmas’ and Paul McCartney’s ‘Wonderful Christmastime’. It then draws to a close with the 2-million selling ‘Mary’s Boy Child/Oh My Lord’ from Boney M. and Johnny Mathis’ #1 ‘When A Child Is Born’.

The biggest selling Christmas single of all time gets the second side underway, Band Aid with ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’, and leads into the single it replaced at #1, the stunningly beautiful ‘The Power Of Love’ from Frankie Goes To Hollywood. Jona Lewie’s ’Stop The Cavalry’ and Mel (Smith) and Kim (Wilde) with their take on ‘Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree’ give way to some of the best soulful seasonal tracks from The Jackson Five, The Ronettes and Darlene Love and finally on this side, The Waitresses’ ‘Christmas Wrapping’ a true contemporary classic.

Side Three rejoices in the biggest names in music, from John Lennon’s inspirational ‘Happy Xmas (War Is Over)’ to Bing Crosby’s surprising and hugely successful duet with David Bowie, with Mike Oldfield’s celebratory ‘In Dulce Jubilo’ sat alongside the rock n roll and retro styles of Elvis Presley, The Beach Boys and one of the biggest Christmas hits of the ‘80s from Shakin’ Stevens. David Essex scored a big hit with ‘A Winter’s Tale’ and Whitney Houston gives a defining version of ‘Do You Hear What I Hear?’ and although not strictly about Christmas, ABBA’s beautiful ‘Happy New Year’ is perfect to close this side.

Our final side is packed with the cosiest and coolest Christmas songs ever; ‘It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year’, ‘It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas’, ‘Jingle Bell Rock’ , ‘Pretty Paper’, ‘Let It Snow!’, ‘Santa Baby’, ‘Ring Christmas Bells’ and the original ‘Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree’ are stacked up to give you the greatest Christmas sing-a-long ever!, just leaving time for one more mince pie while Nat King Cole sings ‘The Christmas Song’, and Bing Crosby signs us off with the incomparable ‘White Christmas’.
