Brian Wilson performs 'Little Saint Nick' live

In November 1964 The Beach Boys released their eighth album - The Beach Boys Christmas Album.

The album contained five original songs and seven standard songs, including the popular tune, 'Little Saint Nick'.

In 1977, the Beach Boys attempted to follow up the album with Merry Christmas from the Beach Boys, but it was rejected by their label.

The entire Christmas Album plus selections from the Merry Christmas sessions were later assembled for the 1998 compilation Ultimate Christmas.

In 2015 Brian Wilson gave a great performance of 'Little Saint Nick'. Check it out above.
