Quality Street: A Seasonal Selection For All The Family is a twinkling blend of traditional hymns, forgotten gems and Lowe originals. From the opening rockabilly-charged “Children Go Where I Send Thee” and the comfy hush of “Christmas Can’t Be Far Away,” the record includes the beatnik bop of “Hooves on the Roof” (written especially for the project by Ron Sexsmith), Roger Miller’s wistful classic “Old Toy Trains,” before wrapping up with a ska-flavored take on “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day.” From beginning to end, Quality Street is the kind of record that gives vulgar, tawdry commercialism a good name, and you can listen to it for one day only in the player below.
Pre-order the CD/LP at the Yep Roc Store for exclusive merch bundles, including: a Holiday greeting card set and a Snow Globe for delivery on or before October 29. And if you buy one for your favorite Nick Lowe fan (or yourself), you can have it wrapped in exclusive Nick Lowe wrapping paper!
