A smaller Christmas, Day 9

It’s snowing in our corner of Wisconsin today. It started about an hour ago and is starting to stick to the ground. There might be 5 or 6 inches on ground by the time the athletes walk out onto Lambeau Field tonight.

“Let It Snow,” Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, from “Christmas with the Miracles,” 1963. It’s out of print. Many of the tunes on this album, including this one, also are on “Our Very Best Christmas,” a 1999 CD release that also is out of print but is available digitally.


We rediscovered this vintage Christmas album in our collection a few years back. We’d forgotten that we had it.

This version of the familiar holiday song has a lot going for it. It’s the group’s original lineup, with Claudette Robinson singing the lead. After an elegant piano intro, this swings, driven by some Latin-flavored percussion.

If this song isn’t your cup of tea, it is short. This runs barely 1:40.
