11 Firestone - The Wonderful World of Christmas 2

Back on the road again! I'm calling this part of the tire series, even though nowhere on the actual album is Firestone listed - it's only on a sticker on the shrink wrap.

This disc has a mean scratch, so unfortunately the opening Merle gets some skips.

It's all country on this disc (well, country-disco in the case of the Donna Fargo track) and fairly good as mid-70's country goes. Even C. W. McCall gets a chance to talk his way thorough a Christmas story. Ray Price has the best performance, though it's not a Christmas song. I actually like the Fargo track best, just for its sheer over-the-top-ness.

I remember my parents playing this album when I was growing up and it was a pleasure to relive those moments by listening to it tonight on your blog; especially New Snow On The Roof... I love that song. Thanks for posting.
