Today is when I learned that RuPaul already has three Christmas records and this new 2o23 “Essential Christmas” is a remastered and remixed greatest-hits collection. Of course, I don’t have a CD in hand. Like everyone else these days, I’m streaming the first thirty seconds of various tracks until I find one I like. This is the first one I hit that lets Ru’s personality come through without overtaxing his range. I’d definitely put it on the Christmas party spin list.
