Xmas Marks the Spot

Culled from Ryko’s catalog of oddities, Xmas Marks the Spot mixes standards (The American Boychoir’s ”God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen”), quirky originals (Mono Puff’s ”Careless Santa”), and wacky holiday humor (Joseph Spence’s ”Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town”). Standouts: Big Star’s ”Jesus Christ” and Lord Nelson’s calypso-flavored ”A Party for Santa Claus.” B+
