Mighty Echoes put Joy back into Christmas music!
Theresa Gauthier | Philadelphia, PA United States | 12/30/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This has become my favorite Christmas CD. It may seem odd to anyone not familiar with the style of music, but this Doo Wop Christmas collection achieves what few Christmas collections do; it's a happy, joyful collection that makes you smile, laugh, and sing along even if the only place you generally sing is in the car, alone, with the windows rolled up!

I'll grant you that I'm partial to Doo Wop music, being from Philadelphia and raised by parents who were here for the beginnings of the genre when every street corner was host to a group intent on serenading the neighbors. That aside, this music is much more than nostalgia. The talents of the Mighty Echoes--for surely we can all agree that singing a cappella requires a great deal of talent--are showcased in their fun and lively arrangements of Christmas standards, breathing new life into the entire lot.

I'd be hard pressed to choose a favorite track, but opening with Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and closing with Happy Xmas (War is Over) was brilliant. The addition of a little "Ho ho ho" in the closing notes of the former give a fun twist to a familiar favorite, and the arrangement of the latter into a 1950s style would surely have made John Lennon himself smile.

Worth every penny! I only wish the Mighty Echoes would put together a second volume!"
