Everything You Want for Christmas (Big Bad/Vanguard)

The Brian Setzer Orchestra

Boogie Woogie Christmas (Surfdog)

These two swing- and lounge-flavored winter platters are upbeat and highly listenable, but BBVD's sometimes flat singing and Setzer's showmanship make Boogie Woogie the better. A re-release with two new cuts, it also includes Ann-Margret dueting with Setzer on "Baby, It's Cold Outside."
