The Smithereens: Christmas Morning / Twas The Night Before
Artist: The Smithereens
Title: Christmas Morning / Twas The Night Before
Label: Sunset BLVD Records
Product Type: 7-INCH SINGLE
Limited red colored vinyl LP pressing. The Smithereens present a Christmas 45 that is more thoughtful and intriguing than the average tossed-together holiday offering. Harking back to the days when bands would make and release Christmas albums and songs without any trace of irony, this Smithereens 7" captures the spirit of a "rock and roll" holiday disc. The original composition "Christmas Morning" will remind you of the best moments of a Smithereens song. This quartet does an impressive job of channeling the spirit of 1960s rock. The B-side, "Twas The Night Before Christmas" adds a nice twist to an otherwise familiar record.
