In 1963, visionary producer Phil Spector, then at the peak of his creativity and cultural influence, created one of the first - and still one of the greatest - rock 'n' roll Christmas albums. Using the artist roster of his Philles label - the Ronettes, the Crystals, Darlene Love and Bob B. Soxx and the Blue Jeans. Spector applied his fabled Wall of Sound to a set of Christmas pop standards and holiday-themed originals. The resulting album brilliantly merges the holiday spirit with the singular sonic uplift of the Spector sound. A Christmas Gift for You concludes with a rare on-mike appearance by Spector himself, delivering a spoken holiday message to listeners. The album had the misfortune of being released on November 22, 1963 and was not a major commercial success. In the years since, however, it has been embraced as a beloved pop-culture touchstone, with many of its tracks becoming holiday airplay favorites. In 2003, A Christmas Gift for You was ranked Number 142 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time! Sundazed's edition of A Christmas Gift for You is sourced directly from the original Philles label mono masters and is pressed on 180 gram vinyl. Listeners can now perfectly re-experience the original magic of this timeless holiday treasure!
