Please Come Home for Christmas, a King reissue from 1961, finds blues crooner Charles Brown trying his hand at Christmas tunes. This set has become a staple for listeners who seek beyond the traditional Nat King Cole or Bing Crosby holiday fare. Brown croons laid-back renditions of "It's Christmas Time," "Christmas Comes But Once a Year," "Let's Make Every Day a Christmas Day," as well as the original version of what has become a cool Yuletide classic, "Merry Christmas Baby." ~ Al Campbell
