Christmas with Gisele

Today's share is one that I consider a classic of vinyl Christmas music collecting - "Christmas with Gisele".  Canadian born Gisele MacKenzie delivers an album full of Christmas classics sung in both English and French.  The French twist to "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" adds a jolt of freshness to the song, and the French medley of "In This Stable", "The Angels in Our Fields", and "The March of the Kings" is a highlight of the twelve songs on the album.

I especially appreciated "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers", "The Night Before Christmas Song", a unique version of the classic story, and the rarely-recorded "Too Fat for the Chimney".

Gisele has a warm voice, well complemented by the creative arrangements.  "Christmas with Gisele" will be a welcome addition to your collection.
