After a great many years of listening to about every version of it we could find, my wife Cat and I agree that this is the best recorded take of Frank Loesser’s wonderful Christmas-season standard, “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” It features New Orleans horn player (and—surprise!—terrific singer) Al Hirt and ever-charming Ann Margaret. The only place we’ve ever seen this cut on CD is on Hip Holidays, a compilation disc issued by Pottery Barn.

More and more I'm communicating with my readers through my free (and ad-free) email newsletter, which is just a simple, direct and personal email from me that I send out every three weeks or so. If you would like to receive this email in your inbox, subscribe to it on my website, or by using the subscription box about halfway down the column on the right. I wouldn't think of using your email address for anything but my e-newsletter (to which you can always unsubscribe with the click of a button). Thanks, and looking forward to communicating with you in this more intimate way.
