Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Vinyl Collection

Trijntje Oosterhuis & The Jazz Orchestra Of The Concertgebouw, A Very Cool Christmas 2, A Very Spidey Christmas, and the best Christmas gifts

The moon is right, the spirit's up, we're here tonight, and that's enough... but is it really a wonderful Christmastime without good music? We doubt it. That's why we've collected some of the best Christmas-themed albums.

Trijntje Oosterhuis & The Jazz Orchestra Of The Concertgebouw released a collaborative album called Wonderful Christmastime, full of Christmas classics with completely new arrangements. It is available as a limited edition on gold vinyl.

If you prefer something more obscure, the compilation A Very Cool Christmas 2 might be the right fit for you. This volume consists of 32 Christmas tracks, recorded by some of the best musicians from the rock, soul, blues, folk, and country scene, like Bob Dylan and Rufus Wainwright. Available now as a limited edition on white (LP1) and light green (LP2) vinyl.

Film fans, particularly those who enjoy superhero movies, can celebrate Christmas in style with A Very Spidey Christmas. This EP features five songs recorded for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. It is available on white vinyl (side A) and a full colour picture (side B).

If you're still looking for some awesome Christmas presents, we've got a few musical recommendations below...
