The Swingles ‎– Christmas Album. I've listened through most of the Swingles' discography. In my opinion this release is their best. Ward Swingle's overlaid medley of "Winter Wonderland," "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town," and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" is astounding. Reply Notify me Helpful.

Yule Songs Vol II is the first Christmas album by The Swingles since 2004, and is their best yet. The group have a long tradition of successful Christmas albums and this one was several years in the planning and execution.
