CD Reviews

A legendary rock'n'roll album for Christmas
W. P. Moerdijk | Nieuwveen, ZH Netherlands | 10/20/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What else could you wish for? If you dislike Christmas music in general and you like New Orleans rythm and blues and rock and roll. This is it. It's crazy, It's happy, It's danceable, It's funky. It was released for the first time in 1962. The up-tempo version of Silent Night caused a lot of bad reviews back then. The karaoke versions are the original backing tracks without the vocals. So if you think you can do a better job on it: Go ahead. If you're not Little Richard, I doubt you'll succeed in improving this one. This is the album that started me collecting rock 'n'roll Christmas music. All my Christmasses have been bright since then.
Happy holidays. Willem."
