The First Noel
Label: Warner Records
As dreamy as this country Christmas is, you'd expect it to be an earlier vintage than 1987. Twanging fiddles and bright violins trade off with straight-laced rhythms and echoey acoustic folk/pop taking center stage. But the clear star is the supremely sweet harmonies of the Forester Sisters who soar on cuts like "Little Toy Trains" and "An Old Christmas Card."
