When Nick Lowe was approached by his record label about making a Christmas album, his reaction wasn't exactly one of comfort and joy. It was more disquiet and alarm, accompanied by feelings of 'do they really think I would wish to sully my good name on this tawdry and vulgar commercialism?' Lowe says with a laugh. But that feeling lasted about thirty-six and a half seconds, before I came to and thought, 'Vulgar, tawdry commercialism? Yes, please, when do we start?' seriously, I thought, 'Wait a minute, this could be really good fun.' QUALITY STREET: A SEASONAL SELECTION FOR ALL THE FAMILY, is a twinkling blend of traditional hymns, forgotten gems and Lowe originals.
