"Elvis' Christmas Album" is the first Christmas album by Elvis.

It was released on October 15, 1957 in a deluxe limited edition with several pictures of Elvis during the filming of "Jailhouse Rock".

It spent four weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart, and was the first of two Christmas-themed albums Presley would record, the other being "Elvis Sings the Wonderful World of Christmas", released in 1971.

It is the first Presley title to attain Diamond certification by the RIAA, and also the best-selling Christmas album of all time with total sales of more than 20 million copies worldwide, remaining one of the world's best-selling albums.

The UK single "Santa Bring My Baby Back (to Me)/Santa Claus is Back in Town" reached No. 7 on the UK Singles Chart in November 1957.

No singles were issued in the US until 1964, when "Blue Christmas/Wooden Heart" reached No. 1 on the Billboard Christmas Singles chart; however, "Blue Christmas/White Christmas" became a Top 20 UK hit in late 1964.

"Santa Claus Is Back In Town/Blue Christmas" reached No. 4 on the Billboard Christmas Singles chart in 1965.

The EP "Elvis Sings Christmas Songs" (EPA 4108) was released on October 16, 1957 to capitalize on the LP and reached No. 1 on the newly established Billboard EP Chart.

It was re-released with a different cover on September 25, 1959 and an EP titled "Christmas with Elvis" (EPA 4340) was also released on October 13, 1959.
