Frank Sinatra - Christmas Collection

Welcome Back B Siders!! Hopefully you guys are all rested and ready for your return to work, schoolwork, or whatever else you took a break from during the holidays. I'm on week 2 of vacation from work, so again I'll apologize for my postings being at odd times this week. I plan on getting them all in by 10am, but you know how that goes. Anyway, Sinatra. I had an anonymous request for this in the Suggestion Box. A person who just stumbled upon my blog via Blogspots 'Next Blog' option. It's a neat feature, and would recommend giving it a shot if you're bored one day. Anyway, I don't know anything about this person - other than he or she enjoys this record. And they also would like to become more acquainted with The B Side once the holidays are over. So here's to hoping we have another loyal reader! Sinatra and I have sort of a love/hate thing. I've listened to his music a lot over the years, and there are moments where I really enjoy it, and times when I can't stand to hear another note. I'm in a more forgiving mood today, so my review will probably be a bit nicer. This Christmas album is pretty unique as well. From all of them I did last week - most of them were just reincarnations of old tracks. Sinatra is semi backward here. He's got a bunch of original stuff, and then a few rehashes. It's certainly got that 'classic' feel to it. If you enjoy Christmas music as it was intending to reach your ear, no remix or new twist on it - you'll LOVE this. It's very traditional and very classic. I think this will be my go to album if I'm looking for those type of Christmas tunes.
