Various Artists: Christmas Favourites: The Essential Collection (2CD)

Ref: AVC895

(UK Postage Free )


AVID’s Essential Collection gets festive with our latest release Traditional Christmas Favourites.
Don’t expect to hear Slade, Wizard or Greg Lake on this wonderfully traditional and frankly old fashioned Christmas collection.
So settle back around the old log fire with a good cigar, a glass of port and a bowl of nuts and listen to the reassuring sounds of amongst others Bing Crosby, The Kings College Choir, Perry Como, Anne Shelton, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Rosemary Clooney, The Royal Choral Society, Glenn Miller and a whole host of traditional Christmas favourites.
And don’t forget these are Santa’s favourites too so leave the player on while he makes his deliveries, oh, and he also likes a good cigar and a glass or port but don’t forget to put the fire out or else he might burn his nuts!!
