Synopsis

Album Description
From the creators of the Grammy Award winning Ultra-Lounge Series comes a new collection of timeless music called Wonderland - adventures in popular culture. Yulesville ? Snowballs and highballs from Santa?s cooler: This novel collection of sixteen hot toddies is so intoxicating that Jack Frost might take a nip (or two). This garland of hep cats and kittens includes Pearl Bailey "Jingle Bells, Cha, Cha, Cha", Leon Redbone "That Old Christmas Moon", Booker T and the MG?s "We Wish You A Merry Christmas", as well as Louie Prima, Claudine Longet, Lionel Hampton, Ann-Margret, Duke Ellington, Tiny Tim and many more. Nuttier than Grandma?s fruitcake, more outrageous than the sugar plum fairy - It?s enough to make your bells jingle. Welcome to the other Tinseltown!

CD Reviews

Polk Bros. Santa wishes you a Merry Christmas
Irving Parke-Rhode | Chicago, IL USA | 12/03/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Okay companion to the Ultra Lounge Christmas discs. A few things here you won't find anywhere else including the roller rink version of "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" by organist Marlowe Morris. That track was originally on the Columbia LP "Jingle Bell Jazz" but was dropped when it was reissued on CD. People who grew up in Chicagoland in the 1960s might recognize the Santa on the CD cover-it's a Polk Bros. Santa like many people had years ago. Polk Bros. was an appliance store and offered these Santas (or a Snowman in 1962 or 1963) free if you spent $30 or, in 1963 at least, $5 with most purchases. The figures were Vacucell-two molded halves stapled together- and were made by the L.A. Goodman Mfg. Co. of Chicago."
