Bob Dylan Records Christmas Album Bob Dylan is finally following Elvis Presley and Nat King Cole: He has made a Christmas album. The Dylan album will include Here Comes Santa Claus and O Little Town of Bethlehem. It's not clear if he will also sing Snowin' in the Wind or Subterranean Homesick Blue Christmas. Just as people say "It's not the heat, it's the humidity," the thing to say about Dylan is that it's not his singing, it's his expression.
