Chuck’s Christmas Classics, featuring Brenda Lee

Brenda Lee from 1960 Rockin’ around the Christmas tree…
.
If Brenda Lee had not recorded “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” in 1958, the holidays would not quite be the same. But for those who think that Lee’s Christmas repertoire begins and ends with that beloved tune, there’s much more on the album of the same name. Enjoy…
