Christmas 2011 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Stoke Newington Town Hall, London, UK; December 6, 2011, first broadcast on BBC4, December 22, 2011. Excellent audio extracted from HDTV broadcast.

Recapture the mellow vibe of your favourite easy listening shows from the ’60s and ’70s with this festive feast of classics old and new. All-time great Carole King plays songs from her recent seasonal album, including Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, and Sheffield crooner Richard Hawley mixes self-penned songs with his own take on Silent Night.

An imaginative bill is completed by the perky vocal harmonies of the Puppini Sisters doing Let It Snow, the dreamy widescreen sound of Brighton outfit the Mummers performing White Christmas and the velvet tones of latter day Nat King Cole, Brooklyn-based jazz vocalist Gregory Porter, crooning the Christmas Song.

Choose between your best cardigan or Rat Pack tuxedo, pour yourself an eggnog, get the chestnuts roasting, put your feet up and join the party!

Thanks to simonlofc for sharing the HDTV broadcast at Dime.
