The first big snow of the year is blowing into Kansas City, so I guess this is as good a time as any to start pulling out the Christmas records. This one came from a garage sale in west Lawrence. How anyone could part with it, I will never understand.
It’s football players singing traditional Christmas carols. From the liner notes “At first the singers were reluctant to sing out, but once they listened to a playback and realized they didn’t sound like a chorus of Quasimodos, the album began to take shape.”
The guys don’t sound half bad, and the tunes have all been given a through 60’s makeover and are suitable for your backyard tiki-bar or swingin’ basement rec room. So pour yourself another egg nog and Deck the Halls with the Kansas City Chiefs.
