Child Of Winter (Christmas Song)

Album: Ultimate Christmas (1974)

Songfacts®:

  • The only Beach Boys release between Holland (1973) and 15 Big Ones (1976), this song was released two days before Christmas and thus had no chance of commercial success. It is now an almost impossible single to find and was released for the first time on album for the 1998 Ultimate Christmas set, though it was intended for the 1977 Christmas album.
  • The "Grinch" voice is Brian Wilson. >>
