Christmas with The Chipmunks was released in 1962 and contains 12 tracks. The tracks from this and its follow-up album, Christmas with The Chipmunks Vol. 2 have been in continuous circulation since their original releases, however, at some point since the late 1980s Volume 2's cover has been given to Volume 1 and vice versa with the volume number and track listing staying the same. Both albums have been combined and reissued several times since their original release, making the songs the most well known in the Chipmunk canon. The most current version available is a 2012 re-release Chipmunks Christmas.
Christmas with The Chipmunks Vol. 2 was released in 1963 and contains 12 tracks. Like Christmas with The Chipmunks, this volume contained 11 traditional holiday songs and one original composition by Ross Bagdasarian, Sr. ("Wonderful Day").
Christmas with The Chipmunks (reissue) was released in 2008. The songs in this collection were culled from the two previous volumes released by Liberty Records. This version was remixed with heavy reverb added to the tracks, a common practice thought to "improve" tracks recorded with technology decades earlier.
