    A spectacular holiday album!

    ...but my copy never should have passed QC at the factory. One of the red splotches was obviously too cool during pressing and that section of the disc is visibly narrower from the edge to the spindle hole (in addition to having at least a dozen audibly scraping defects in each side's first tracks.)

      Sounds good and is a great album. However GZ never fails to disappoint. Two giant scratches and muck on the record that at first I thought were a nasty permanent defects. I’m reluctant to buy anything from their factory ever again.

        Excellent. When I first heard the song Big Bulbs, I heard Big Balls which makes it a whole other kind of song. Fantastic album. Grab it!

          Absolutely brilliant!! 😍👌

          I'm not so big on Christmas music, but I have to admit this is definitely the funkiest Christmas album I've ever heard! 😎 There is not a bad track anywhere on the album. Highly recommended! 🙏

          Such a shame that Sharon Jones left this world far too early. She is dearly missed 😢 But her legacy lives on...
