Somehow, in the flurry of recordings that the Beach Boys made during the mid-'60s, the band found time to issue an entire album of Christmas songs, nearly half of them originals written by Brian Wilson. Released in October of 1964, The Beach Boys' Christmas Album remains one of the few holiday recordings that merits serious discussion as an album of new work, even warranting an expanded reissue with bonus cuts in 1991. However, that original work is beyond the scope of this review.
