The first holiday album I’ll recommend is Christmas With The Rat Pack. The album is a must-have, because Frank, Dean, and Sammy celebrate the holidays with panache. And the Rat Pack never goes out of style!

While all the songs are great, because these guys were the masters, the songs that stand out in this 21-song collection are the ones that arent’ the usual holiday fare. And they include: Christmas Time All Over The World, I Believe, Baby it’s Cold Outside, I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm, and Mistletoe and Holly.

So, let’s have Dino start things off with a performance of Marshmallow World.
