Synopsis

Album Description
In the tradition of Chuck Berry, Bob Seger, and Georgia Satellites, " Yule Rock and Yule Roll" is an up-tempo song in the classic rock and roll spirit of the 50's and 60's, " The Crookedest Christmas Tree" is a musical story (great for kids) about the trials and tribulations of a Christmas Tree no one wants. "Santa Is A Surfer" is a Beach Boys meet The Ventures song telling the true story of how Santa delivers toys to all the girls and boys near the beach. "Season's Greetings" is a Moody Blues flavored song about what the holiday season should be. What if Jimmy Buffet and Bob Marley drank egg nog with Jerry Lee Lewis? It might sound better than this, but cost a whole lot more! "Sandy Beaches and Sunny Christmas" is about Christmas in the land of no snow nor ice. "Shake Your Sleighbells" offers a remedy to the frustrations and stress sometimes experienced during the holidays. "Blue Christmas" is a blues song about a man who has every thing go wrong during the Christmas season, including losing his girlfriend, tangled Christmas lights, curdled eggnog, too many to list all! "Silent Night and The Evening News", juxtaposes the traditional Christmas carol and its message of hope and peace with the harsh realities of mankind's violence. "Christmas All The Time" asks why isn't the spirit of Christmas practiced through out the year, and not just during the holidays? "No Lines At All" is a folk rock ballad describing how the Earth looks at Christmas time from an astronaut's view in space, inspired when the band met MaQ, a part time rock and roll band composed of active NASA astronauts.
 

CD Reviews

Com"YULE"ation Cleric : Whom,Where, When, What, and Why?
Mitch Mirthman | on the path in search of YULEtide Treasure | 07/24/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I can't answer all the questions surrounding this album,but here's some of the scuddle. It starts with a group of far southern songsmiths getting their YULE on and laying a couple fresh tracks . Not wishing to seem sour or get stale, the group loses a couple of holiday harpers, yet continues to craft two additional YULEridGEMals each year for the next three years. In 96 the trio becomes a duet and dose two more tunes. The next year they produce the complete collection and offer it up in tune with the world. ... Post Script:This type of disc is why YULEtide Treasure Seekers further thier quest, a load of only seasonal surprisals and generous genre inclusions.Five star effort throughout, but only ten tracks and no instru-tinsel dose the dim to four. ..."
Add some variety to your Christmas collection!

"Happy, humorous, and thought provoking songs about the holiday season. Folk rock, surf, reggae, rock and roll, blues, country rock, and children's music. I like this album because it is not your father's Christmas music. This has a mix of everything."
