THE RETROSPECTIVE SOUNDTRACK PLAYERS ... It's A Wonderful Christmas Carol (Xtra Mile Recordings)

THIS is the third album from TRSP, an indie-folk band from Southsea who make albums themed around classic books and films.

Their inspiration here is Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and Frank Capra’s It’s A Wonderful Life, and it’s a very enjoyable listen.

Labelmates Chris T-T, Frank Turner and Ben Marwood guest as the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet To Come, and there’s much to commend it.

Christmas Day, No Man Is Poor Who Has Friends and Bah Humbug! my favourite moments among its 11 tracks. 7/10. GW
