Overview

Yule B Swingin'

This package was yet another attempt to cash in on the late-'90s retro craze for "swing" music and dancing. Artists loosely working in the swing idiom are featured on a selection of the type of obligatory Christmas theme recordings that proliferated in the major label's catalogs back in the 1940s, '50s, and early '60s. Selections include the great (Louis Prima's "What Will Santa Claus Say [When He Finds Everybody Swingin'?]," Lionel Hampton's "Merry Christmas, Baby," Peggy Lee's "Ring Those Christmas Bells"), the obvious (Glenn Miller's "Jingle Bells," Johnny Desmond's "Sleigh Ride," Ella Fitzgerald's "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas"), and the passable (Dean Martin's "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm," Les Brown's "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!"). Selections from Kay Starr, Pete Fountain, Louis Armstrong, Ralph Marterie, and Nancy Wilson complete this 14-track collection.
