4 Takes On Sleigh Ride

I went through all of my christmas music and discovered i have 43 different versions of the tune. from the band america (which is actually a pretty good version) to air supply (a horrible version on a really bad christmas cd) to the ventures (closest to Z).
I picked four of my favorites.
Johhny A (Johnny A is an amazing guitar talent — his style is similar to that of a danny gatton — great guitar version of the tune).

Squirrel Nut Zippers — a big band/new orleans jazz feel — it swings!

Garth Brooks — love the arrangement (couldn’t find a link for a download)

And the best version ever – featuring the phil spector “wall of sound,” from the Ronnettes (from the cd/album A Christmas Gift For You From Phil Spector)
