I have no idea. I have many Christmas songs that I have ripped from CD's to home server plus ones that I have bought via itunes. I use itunes to create Genius playlists so I never listen to an album anymore!
Push comes to shove, I'd probably say these four depending on the mood I'm in:
Boney M! Geez, I think my parents used to play that every day for two weeks straight during the holidays when I was a kid. And "Nightflight to Venus" used to boom out on weekend mornings when they wanted us to get out of bed.
I have this CD called "Joy To The World, an other songs done in organs and chimes". I am not saying it is my favorite, but the LP version my parents had in the 60s, and played on what would be a console Hi-Fi then, sounded very close to a real church organ. The CD pales in comparison, in that it completely loses the low end that made the LP great.
Other than that, I have no favorite Christmas CDs or otherwise, but strongly prefer a good part of the middle 1950s to the 1970s mostly traditional music, as well as the way Christmas looked back then, especially in Kodachrome pictures.
Vince Guaraldi's 'A Charlie Brown Christmas' is essential.
I'm also extremely fond of the Ultra-Lounge series 'Christmas Cocktails' albums. There are 3 of them and include great tracks like Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer by Billy May, Winter Wonderland by Peggy Lee and of course Baby It's Cold Outside by the incomparable Dean Martin.
Here are my favourites:
1)Vince Guraldi-Charlie Brown Christmas
2)Perry Como-Home for the Holidays(unfortunately never released on CD).
3)Choirboys-The Carols Album
4)Lorenna Mckennitt-To drive the cold winter away.
