Party like it's Christmas 1977!

I guess it makes sense that a company like K-Tel would have released this album back in 1977, at the height of the disco craze.

"Christmas Disco Party" is an album of disco-themed medleys of Christmas tunes. Although the cover says "25 Non-Stop Disco Hits", it's actually divided into 6 medleys, running about 6 minutes apiece, including a New Year's Eve medley to complete the holiday season (trust me, you will have had enough of this album LONG before New Year's Eve).

I'm not kidding, folks - this is pretty terrible stuff, listening to it now three decades later. As we know, the passage of time has not been kind to the general perception of disco music, and this certainly is not exempt from that. If you're anything like me, you might get a small initial giggle from this, but then get bored of it very quickly.

This is a Christmas disco party that would have me making excuses as to why I had to leave early. I post this on my blog as a musical artifact from Christmas past.
