Here's one of the coolest, yule-est satires of Christmas songs and spoofs ever to slide off Santa's sleigh. Blame It on Christmas boasts such telling titles as "Schlepp the Halls with Loaves of Hallah" in a kooky klezmer send-up and apes the Crosby, Como, and Sinatra holiday styles in "We Three Bings" and "That Swingin' Manger." Throw in some exotica like "12 Arabian Nights," "The Inexcelsis Polka," and Irish, Mexican, and Italian spoofs of timeless carols, hymns, and songs--even a number called "The Second Noel"--and you know immediately that the tinsel tricksters behind these seasonal pranks are practicing the merriest of merriment anywhere on the globe. Collectors have been waiting since 1995 for volume 2; how many more times can they wear out volume 1 pining for the follow-up? Get it yesterday. --Martin Keller

"Apparently some people don't get the joke. This isn't really a compilation of rare Christmas songs from all over the world. All the songs here were actually recorded specifically for this album by one group of people. The songs are done in various styles; such as marching band, Jewish, Arabian, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Santo & Johnny, surf, polka and many others. It's pretty fun, although it isn't "laugh out loud" funny. It's more of an "isn't that clever" type of humor, that will make you smile but probably won't make you chuckle. Fans of novelty Christmas music may want to check it out."

"This is truly fabulous, I bought it four years ago in nyc, and as I live in england have had to put up with friends hassling me to get them copies, now I can send them to Amazon. The Jewish Christmas classics with 'Rabbi Tevye and the three weissmen' are priceless. cannot reccomend highly enough."
Loads of FUN!!
