CD Reviews

Fun CD - worth seeking out
John Sloan | right there | 11/17/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"As I am writing this, the CD is not currently available here, but you can order it directly from the band on their own web site.
I remember "Must Be Santa" from the sing along with Mitch Miller records that we played at my house when I was a kid. Brave Combo makes that even more fun. They make a lot of classic Christmas songs more fun by arranging them in various styles including polka, ska, and different types of latin music. There are a few original songs here to, and out of those, "Christmas In July" is the best.
I was enticed to buy this after listening to the samples available here. Try it, see if you like it too."
Very fun christmas record for the secret polka fan in us all

"I had already owned a few BC CD titles when I heard about this 3 or 4 years ago. I immediately went to the Rounder records website and ordered 1 for me and 3 for my sisters. Having polka and traditional "Hunky" music played in our house growing up, there is something about it that just makes you want to move. Their version of "Must Be Santa" needs to be on repeat play for half an hour it is just so much fun at Christmas time. Arguably the best song on this CD. If you know anything of BC's music and other releases, you know that their style is all over the map with Polkas, Cha-Chas, Waltzes, and Reggae with touches of other musical forms thrown in the mix to make it interseting. Same thing here. What you get are 15 very different tunes that just make the holiday that much more fun. Not every song is a winner but the album as a whole does not disappoint. Much better than any Mannheim Steamroller release. I like Hard Rock and this works for me."
One of two

"of my favorite Christmas albums. The other is Mannheim Steamroller Christmas. You got these two records at Christmas, you don't need anything else. You can skip the tree and the turkey and the presents and the lights. You'll need a stereo, but that's it. Electricity. You'll need electricity. But that's it."
