Bobby Helms & Johnny PaycheckA Little Darlin' Christmas (Koch)
Bobby Helms made "Jingle Bell Rock" the No. 2 most popular Christmas song of all time after "White Christmas," and this yuletide CD contains his similarly upbeat readings of several other seasonal favorites. The late Johnny Paycheck weighs in with four never-released carols of his own, including absentee parent tale "Mommy for Awhile on Christmas Day" and abject Santa letter "I'll Place My Order Early." Christmas like it oughta be.
