Album Details:

Via AllMusic:

“Featuring Phil Spector’s “Wall of Sound” in its prime and his early stable of artists, the Ronettes, Crystals, Darlene Love, and Bob B. Soxx & the Blue Jeans, A Christmas Gift for You From Phil Spector stands as inarguably the greatest Christmas record of all time. Spector believed he could produce a record for the holidays that would capture not only the essence of the Christmas spirit, but also be a pop masterpiece that would stand against any work these artists had already done. He succeeded on every level, with all four groups/singers recording some of their most memorable performances. This is the Christmas album by which all later holiday releases had to be judged, and it has inspired a host of imitators.”

Ride Details:

This is the last ride of 2016.  Let’s get in the holiday spirit with a screening of Elf at the Aero Theater in Santa Monica.  Before the movie, we’ll grab dinner and drinks at R+D Kitchen.

Notes:

Tickets for the screening will cost $13 each.
