Ah, that spirited nasal twang of 16-year-old Brenda Lee singing the "Deck! The Halls with Boughs of Holly!" chorus from her mega-hit "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree"! When it comes to Christmas classics, some people like their Bing, others their Perry, but for some folks there's nothing quite like that tortured holiday teenage (and beyond) angst of the girl once known as "Little Miss Dynamite." Who else could sing songs like "Marshmallow World" and "Strawberry Snow" and not only make it forgivable, but enjoyable? Brenda gets a bit on the weepy side here with "Blue Christmas" and "Christmas Will Be Just Another Lonely Day," but that's the part of her shtick that many people consider the money shot. --Steve Gdula

A good CD but the original is better and is available

"This still a good CD with only ten of the original songs of Brenda Lee's "Merry Christmas from Brenda Lee" Album. The songs that are missing are "Santa Claus is comming to town" and "Frosty the snowman" The ten remaining songs are probably more rememorable. I highly recomend the remastered original version titled "Rocking aroung the christmas tree" It contains all twelve songs plus six extra songs. It may cost more but, it is worth the money. The reason I gave the Jingle Bell Rock CD three stars is because this other , more complete, version is available"
This is a great tradition for my family.

"My Christmas is never complete with out being able to hear this album. The songs are very up lifting and soothing to the ears and heart."
No one can sing a Christmas song like Brenda!

"Brenda Lee is the creator of a true Rock and Roll Christmas song, Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree. Others have recorded this song, but no one comes close to the original Brenda Lee version. I have this on vinyl and I do wish the other two songs were included, but it's still a great CD."
