Let's face it, every Christmas produces its fair share of substandard recordings. It's sadly only too easy for acts of every style to schedule a quick recording session or two and make perfunctory versions of all recorded carols and, worse, Santa songs.

No doubt this will be selling well over the next few Christmases.
