A new compilation of Barbra Streisand Christmas songs has just been released. The 16-track epic gathers recordings from her two previous festive long players, 1967’s ‘A Christmas Album’ and 2001’s ‘Christmas Memories’. Sadly there is nothing new on ‘The Classic Christmas Album’ but there are plenty reminders of why Streisand is a perfect fit for the season. This collection contains many old favourites like ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’, ‘Jingle Bells’ and the ‘The Christmas Song’ as well as lesser known delights such as ‘I Wonder As I Wander’ and ‘The Best Gift’. With a running time of almost an hour Barbra could be offering you the perfect way to ease yourself into the season.
