A Window Shopper's Christmas

Genre: Country; Producer (group): 1-800-PRIME-CD

On A Window Shopper’s Christmas, their fourth release, the quintet unleash their gentle ironic touch on the season with a set of tightly crafted originals that maintain a down-home benevolence while focusing on such non-Christmas themes as suicide (”And to All a Good Night”) and porn (”Missing Miss December”).
