Today we get volume five of A&P's Christmas Greetings series. Although I hate to be a scrooge, there's not a whole lot to recommend on this one, with the possible exception of the Tanya Tucker and Charlie Rich tracks. Everything else drips schmaltz. I suppose the Mitch Miller Sleigh Ride is one of those classics, but I don't especially need to hear it again.
