Low 'Christmas' LP
“Despite the commerce involved, we hope you will consider this our gift to you. Best wishes.” - Low
Low’s eight song 1999 release ‘Christmas’ collects five seasonally-themed originals by the band and covers of ‘Little Drummer Boy’, ‘Blue Christmas’ and ‘Silent Night’.
Of the originals here, one (‘If You Were Born Today’) was released backed with ‘Blue Christmas’ as a 7” single in 1997 on Wurlitzer Jukebox and another (‘Taking Down The Tree’) was released in 1998 on a compilation by the Dutch VPRO radio station.
This from AllMusic, “...the heartfelt and reverential beauty of their sound and lyrics are perfect for the holiday season. ‘Christmas’ is a rich treat in a tiny package.”
This gatefold LP reissue of ‘Christmas’ presents the album in a substantially less tiny package.
