Limited Edition 180g White Vinyl LP With Die Cut Sleeve!

Elvis' Christmas Album is the fourth studio album and first Christmas album by American singer and musician Elvis Presley, released in October 1957, and recorded at Radio Recorders in Hollywood. It has been reissued in numerous different formats since its first release. It spent four weeks at number one on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart, and was the first of two Christmas-themed albums Presley would record, the other being Elvis Sings the Wonderful World of Christmas, released in 1971. Elvis' Christmas Album is the first Presley title to attain Diamond certification by the RIAA, and is also the best-selling Christmas/holiday album of all time in the United States. The album has sold 15 million copies worldwide.

This popular recording is now available on limited edition 180g White Vinyl with a die cut sleeve.

"Elvis' 1957 original Christmas album is one of his most inspired early outings and the first time he tackled anything resembling a thematic concept. Split evenly between rockers and bluesy numbers like 'Santa Claus Is Back in Town,' 'Blue Christmas,' and 'Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me,' perennials like 'White Christmas,' 'I'll Be Home for Christmas,' and 'Silent Night,' and straight-ahead gospel favorites like 'I Believe,' 'Peace in the Valley' and 'Take My Hand, Precious Lord,' the disc revealed a different side of the rocker for the first time on a public instead conditioned to expect something outrageous. One of the King's shining moments, this is quite simply still one of the best holiday albums available." - Cub Koda, allmusic.com
