"Jingle Bell Rock". Bobby Helms
(1 out of 5 stars)
"Sir's, Being that i'am a dedicated consumer, i want to know why your advertising and selling another version (he must've resung it) of "Jingle Bell Rock". As your aware of...from my past purchases, i value the original Recordings. In fact, i have all 45 & 78 recordings of old rock since 1954. I have the original 45rpm. "Jingle Bell Rock". I would not purchase CD's that's not the orininal recording, when Bobby Helms recorded it in the studio. If you want to hear his original "Jingle Bell Rock", i can send you a REALPLAYER Audio recording of his hit song. I WANT TO KNOW WHY YOUR SELLING A RESUNG MAKE OF HIS HIT SONG? EVEIDENTLY, HE TRIED TO MAKE A COMEBACK BY RESINGING HIS HIT SONG. TO LET YOU KNOW....... IT'S TERRIBLE. THE ARRANGEMENT STINKS. I WON'T PURCHASE THIS REMAKE UNTIL THE ORIGINAL IS PRESENT. MY ORIGINAL 45 IS KINDS OLD FOR TAPE OR CD TRANSFER. THIS IS WHY I WOULD LIKE A NEW COPY OF HIS OLD HIT SONG. I AWAIT FOR YOUR REPLY...... CHAS. J, DEQUARTO CM.DEQUARTO@WORLDNET.ATT.NETHave a "HAPPY-HOLIDAYS".ps: I would like to keep this message Anonymous. It's not good for Public Relations and for business consumption."

"This cd, from the 1950`s (I believe), is a great traditional country christmas cd that, even though I don`t like country music, works because of it`s traditional and christmassy style - plus Bobby Helms' voice is great - it really sounds like one of those old christmas voices (Gene Autry comes to thought). Many great songs as well such as his classic JINGLE BELL ROCK (which is not the better recording you'll usually find on the compilations - but still good anyways), SILVER BELLS, WINTER WONDERLAND, as well as one of my favorite versions of both JINGLE BELLS and I SAW MOMMY KISSING SANTA CLAUS. And all the other songs are great as well. Even if you don't like country, you`ll probably like this for it`s old traditional christmas style. Recommended."
