Various Artists: Happy Holidays Las Vegas

There is a long tradition of crappy Christmas music, and this one is as smelly as reindeer droppings. No one expects much more than schmaltz from Las Vegas, but the opening track here, featuring Lesley Gore, sounds like an ad put together by the gambling commission. Other notable appearances here include Lou Rawls, Tony Orlando, Florence LaRue of the Fifth Dimension and Nevada Lt. Governor Lorraine T. Hunt. So bad it’s good? Not even.
