Just been looking through HMV Christmas stuff and came across this for a few quid. It's doesnt have a track listing but searching elsewhere it looks like it's pretty good if you're into 70's lounge bar style "grooves". Either way, I've ordered it.

What's great about the Get Easy! series is that regardless of which sound, style, or genre a particular disc has in its sights, the end result is a damn near definitive overview of its subject, so it should come as no surprise to discover that Snow: The Get Easy! Christmas Collection is one of the most consistent, eclectic, and just plain entertaining holiday comps ever assembled. While the disc stays within the late-'60s context of the entire Get Easy! series, the material is wildly diverse, embracing jazz, funk, Baroque pop, and even psychedelic soul. Some of the cuts are familiar (like Stevie Wonder's "What Christmas Means to Me" and Donny Hathaway's brilliant "This Christmas," a surefire contender for the greatest holiday tune ever) and some are surprisingly rare (e.g., Scott Walker's terrific "Winter Night"), but all of them share a sense of joy and warmth that's sweet but never saccharine. In short, it's the perfect soundtrack for pretty much any Christmastime scenario, and deserves a space in the holiday canon alongside classics like A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector and Vince Guaraldi's A Charlie Brown Christmas. ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide
