More great Christmas jams

"Gary Hoey's second Christmas cd is as good, as varied and as much fun as his first one was. There's the heavy metal "Deck the Halls", the Chuck Berry-ish "Rockin' Around the X-mas Tree", the jazzy "The Christmas Song", the appropriately aggressive "Mr. Grinch", John Lennon's "Happy Xmas/Give Peace a Chance" and many more fun takes on Christmas standards. The only knock might be trying to mix in an original tune among all the familiar melodies. But that's a minor detail. If you want to boost the energy level of your holiday cd collection, you can't do much better than this. Feliz Navidad!"
It's good stuff!

"Gary Hoey has carved himself out a great niche in the world of guitar-instrumentalists. It's a shame that his original material doesn't get as much attention, but, this stuff is definitely great. And as much as I HATE christmas music, I can listen to this disc! That's saying something right there! If you [dislike the] Xmas music that's out there, this is a great alternative for you."
