"I found this C.D. in a search for Christmas music for this year's festivities and bought it on a whim. It was purchased in a group of about 10 classic C.D.s from my younger memories including, Christmas with the Rat Pack (Excellent Also), Andy William's Red Album, Charlie Brown's Christmas etc. Of all the C.D.'s in the group that brought back Christmas seasons long gone, this C.D. was by far the most entertaining and most often played. The arrangements and compositions of the clasics were so fresh and original it made them new again. It's definitely a talented band that can take the melody from South Pacific's Bali High and turn it into a lead in to Blue Christmas. Every song on this CD is a winner. The vocals hint at Elvis/Roy Orbison and the instrumentals are dripping in salt water with snow on the upper peaks of the island. Whether you are a avid surfer, beach boy at heart or just a lover of the old school sound. Buy this... you will not be sorry. I am on my way to search for more from this very original group of musicians. Merry Christmas and Aloha...."
An instant classic!

"I picked this one up a few years ago and it immediately became my favorite Christmas album.Not only is it a hit with my friends when they stop by for coffee and cookies on Christmas eve, my parents (in their 80s) and my neices (5 & 6 yrs old) even request it by name when they come over for brunch on Christmas morning.Great stuff!"

"This is a Christmas album by the Blue Hawaiians. The Blue Hawaiians play surf music with a Hawaiian music influence. Six of the tracks are instrumentals and four tracks are songs with vocals. The album is a lot of fun. If you are looking for a Christmas album that's a little "different", you should check it out."
