2013 holiday release from the veteran British singer/songwriter. When Nick Lowe was approached by his record label about making a Christmas album, his reaction wasn't exactly one of comfort and joy. And the joys of Christmas infuse the dozen songs on Quality Street: A Seasonal Selection For All The Family. The album features originals and covers of seldom heard seasonal songs plus a few you may be slightly familiar with. Anyone who likes their Christmas soundtracks with plenty of heart and humor, and a sprinkle of understated charm, will enjoy Quality Street for the newly minted classic that it is. You might say it's the kind of record that gives vulgar, tawdry commercialism a good name.
