Retro Christmas – A Christmas Music Compilation

Since Yuletide is almost upon us, I thought it would be a great idea to share a special Retro Christmas compilation with you fine folks. The compilation features 25 songs, one for each day until Christmas day.

The theme is as the title of the compilation suggests, holiday related songs from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. You will most likely recognize most of the titles – but you have probably not have heard them played like this before. Happy holidays from Ultra Swank!
