Nat King Cole: The Magic of Christmas

Nat King Cole was one of the most iconic pop-crooners of the mid 20th century. In 1960 he released a beautiful collection of Christmas music: ‘The Magic of Christmas’.

Track list
1. Deck the Halls
2. Adeste Fideles  (O, Come All Ye Faithful)
3. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
4. O Tannenbaum
5. O Little Town of Bethlehem
6. I Saw Three Ships
7. O Holy Night
8. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
9. A Cradle in Bethlehem
10. Away in a Manger
11. Joy to the World
12. The First Noel
13. Carolling, Carolling
14. Silent Night

Sadly it’s very hard to purchase a copy of this album in Australia, but if you live in the UK you can buy it to your hearts content on Amazon. The rest of us will have to do with finding second hand LPs or cobbling together the playlist from newer Nat King Cole compilation albums.

An almost-complete playlist is available for streaming on Last FM/Spotify.
