Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

A good Christmas compilation should contain the following things--a selection of old classics to warm your cockles by the fireside, some of the classic pop titles that people always seem to find themselves singing along to in the pub on Christmas Eve, some carols and a handful of oddities to keep everyone on their toes. The Best Christmas Album in the World Ever manages to fulfil all these criteria--on the classic front there is Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" and Dean Martin's "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow", on the classic pop front there's Slade's "Merry Christmas Everybody" and Wizzard's "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday", traditional carols "Silent Night" and "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" head the field and as far as oddities go, look no further than the double whammy of "Lonely Pup (In A Christmas Shop)", courtesy of Adam Faith, and "Angels" by Robbie Williams (a pretty tenuous inclusion, especially considering the angel in the title is his mum). All in all, small gripes aside, The Best Christmas Album In The World Ever manages to live up to its name.--Helen Marquis

Compilation albums covering the Christmas genre are usually ten-a-penny come the festive season, but if it's quality you're after - never mind value for money - then "The Best Christmas Album In The World....Ever" is the CD you're looking for.
It's an overly-used expression nowadays, but this collection is an absolute 'classic'. Featuring many well-known tracks from a time when Christmas singles really meant something, you'll be hard pushed to find a song you haven't heard before - and believe me, these are the songs that'll be played constantly during the run-up to Christmas in almost every place you'll go.
Because it appears no-one's interested in making Christmas records an more, the people who compiled this CD have included many Christmas favourites from years gone by. Of course, "The Best Christmas Album In The World....Ever!" relies heavily on the massive chart hits from the 1970s. I mean, what collection would this be without Christmas contributions from Slade, Roy Wood & Wizzard, Paul McCartney, John & Yoko, Greg Lake, Chris De Burgh, Jona Lewie, Mud and Elton John? There's more than just a few classic 'cuts' from the 1950s and 1960s included here too: Nat King' Cole, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald, Adam Faith and Matt Munro. Oldies, yes, but still all-time favourites. And, quite rightly, Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" features here too.
For those who like their music with a more modern feel, those responsible for this CD have included Robbie Williams' "Angels" (even if I can't understand why) and "Baby, It's Cold Outside" by Tom Jones and Cerys Mathews - two tracks that don't usually conjure up thoughts of "Christmas" to most people.

By Brit Boy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 24 July 2014
Format: Audio CD
My all-time favourite Christmas compilation album is: The No.1 Christmas Album: 40 Classic Christmas Tracks, so I can't agree with the title of 'The Best Christmas Album In The World', part of EMI/Virgin's long-running 'Ever' series. However, this two-disc collection from 2000, is indeed very strong. This album has been re-issued at least three times, with several songs dropped to make way for some new additions.

There are plenty of festive standards here, including 'Winter Wonderland' by Peggy Lee, Mel and Kim's tongue-in-cheek '80s hit version of 'Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree', which is usually associated with Brenda Lee's traditional recording, Nat 'King' Cole with 'Frosty The Snowman', and Bing Crosby crooning 'White Christmas'. Newer artists also sing the classics, including Jane McDonald doing 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas', and some excellent originals, my favourites being 'A Spaceman Came Travelling', 'Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday', and 70s groups Wizzard with 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday', and Slade's 'Merry Christmas Everybody'. Cliff Richard is best represented here, with three of his recordings present: 'Saviour's Day', 'The Millennium Prayer' and 'Mistletoe and Wine'.

This has a good line-up, although there are a few of my favourites that are neglected, namely 'A Fairytale Of New York' by The Progues & Kirsty MacColl, 'Lonely This Christmas' by Mud, and David Essex's 'A Winter's Tale'. I also love Kate Bush's excellent 'December Will Be Magic Again', but that isn't the world's best-known festive number, so I understand the omission. Either way, I have all of these on my aforementioned favourite Christmas album anyway.

Every few years, they change the track listing and the artwork. This is the third edition of this collection, which is as strong a collection of Christmas songs as you'll find anywhere. Some big hits have been dropped from the second edition (it has a bright red frame to the front picture of Santa), which I slightly prefer, but other big hits have replaced them so the overall strength is the same.
Cliff Richard had three Christmas number one hits in the UK - Millennium prayer, Saviour's day and Mistletoe and wine - and they are all here together with a fourth big UK hit, Little town. I love Cliff's music but some people have a different opinion and will not like his strong representation here.
Many classic UK hits are here (and one or two non-hits that should have been), including Happy Xmas (John Lennon), Wonderful Christmastime (Paul McCartney), I wish it could be Christmas every day (Wizzard), Merry Christmas everybody (Slade), Do they know its Christmas (Band aid), I believe in Father Christmas (Greg Lake), A spaceman came travelling (Chris De Burgh), The power of love (Frankie goes to Hollywood), Step into Christmas (Elton John), Little Saint Nick (Beach boys), Santa Claus is coming to town (Jackson 5), In dulci Jubilo (Mike Oldfield), Stop the cavalry (Jona Lewie), Christmas wrapping (Waitresses), White Christmas (Bing Crosby), The Christmas song (Nat King Cole), Walking in the air (Aled Jones), Rocking around the Christmas tree (Mel and Kim), Lonely this Christmas (Mud) and Gaudete (Steeleye Span). All these songs are regulars on UK Christmas compilations, though Brenda Lee's version of Rocking around the Christmas tree is sometimes used instead of the Mel and Kim version - both were UK hits at different times.
