Playlist Description

With some rocking interpretations of classic carols, more straight-forward versions of Christmas songs, and secular pop tunes set within a holiday context, this playlist presents an extensive collection of the Christmas music available in the Vault. Highlights include Bruce Springsteen getting a 1978 Winterland audience excited with the Big Man acting as the Big Man from the North Pole, James Taylor singing a romantic duet with himself, Emerson Lake and Palmer spicing up a Tchaikovsky classic, a series of intimate recordings from a "Christmas at McCabe's" radio broadcast curated by T-Bone Burnett, John Prine's heart-wrenching tale of spending "Christmas in Prison," and The Who re-creating that December 25th magic as a contrast to Tommy's isolation. From all of us at the Vault, have a happy, safe, and peaceful holiday season. We hope it's filled with family, friends, and good tunes.
