My #1 Christmas album! 5 Mar. 2002
By Henry R. Kujawa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I can't help it-- I've been listening to The Chipmunks for as long as I remember, my parents bought me this WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT (in 1962), and I've never gotten bored with it during the holidays. There are several Chipmunks Christmas albums these days (some 2nd-rate "repackages"-- beware!) but only the 2 from the 60's are really worth owning to my tastes.
EVERY song here is a classic, including "Here Comes Santa Claus", "Up On The House Top" and "Jingle Bells" (each of these is a close tie with Gene Autry's versions-- although "Jingle Bells" is the ONLY version I've heard that has ALL the lyrics, plus it slowly speeds up until by the end it's turned rock & roll!). "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" originally appeared on AROUND THE WORLD WITH THE CHIPMUNKS (1960), while "The Chipmunk Song"-- the very first "Chipmunks" song-- dates back to the 1958 single, and the 1959 album LET'S ALL SING WITH THE CHIPMUNKS. It's nice to have them both here, though, as this package would seem incomplete without them. While child (of any age) cannot relate to such heart-wrenching lyrics ("we can hardly stand the wait, please Christmas don't be late")?
A year later came the follow-up, CHRISTMAS WITH THE CHIPMUNKS VOL.2-- also essential. (Just be careful which one you get-- it's the one that starts with "Jingle Bell Rock" and should have a pic of Santa on a rooftop while Alvin, Simon & Theodore are raiding his parked sleigh!)

fine new version of a Christmastime classic 29 Nov. 2007
By Matthew G. Sherwin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ross Bagdasarian, a.k.a. David Seville, created the great sound of The Chipmunks (Alvin, Simon and Theodore) essentially by taking the sound of a few people singing and speeding it up to sound like small animals singing. This technique works well still today; their Christmas album is a delight for the kids and inevitably nostalgic for us adults. Just one listen proves it!

The CD starts with "Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane)." The Chipmunks perform a charming and somewhat amusing rendition of this classic Christmastime ballad. The percussion and flute add to the natural beauty of this number; and the harmonizing leaves nothing to be desired! The cute banter between Alvin the chipmunk and David Seville makes the number even cuter. Great! Next we get the remarkably famous "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)." This you've undoubtedly heard on the radio; and the sound on the CD is excellent. They harmonize well and the banter between The Chipmunks and David Seville near the end of the song resembles that of a parent and children having "a special moment."

"Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer" also works well. The musical arrangement reflects good judgment and I predict that the children--and you--will like this number very, very much. "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" begins with a great harp solo even if the solo is brief; and this number shines like gold! "Frosty The Snowman" features The Chipmunks singing this children's Christmas song rather well; and the percussion sounds great on "Frosty The Snowman," too.

You're bound to like "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town;" and "Christmas Time (Greensleeves)" features The Chipmunks singing their best vocals to the tune of "Greensleeves." Great! "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," a tune from Meet Me In St. Louis, sparkles as David Seville puts his stamp on this beautiful song.

The Chipmunk tracks end fittingly with "White Christmas." This ballad, although it's actually somewhat melancholy, sounds optimistic and very beautiful as David Seville sings this with great sensitivity. The flutes and strings enhance "White Christmas," too.

With this version of this album we get a bonus track by Canned Heat. It's actually quite good and it rocks; but it's a big difference from The Chipmunks!

David Seville and The Chipmunks were a huge hit in the early 1960s; and they remain a favorite of many a child even today. You just can't keep good entertainment down; and this fine CD is sure to remain in print for many years to come.

Get 2007 version 26 Dec. 2007
By Nicholas J. Leipzig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Please note to get instead the new great sounding Capitol 2007 release which has ALL 24 songs (includes both Volumes 1 & 2) plus one bonus and is very reasonably priced. This is the disappointing 10 song abbreviated version. The 2006 version has a recording flaw. This is a classic Christmas album that should be FULLY enjoyed and the 2007 is the best version out there!

It sounds like the chipmunks are right there with you in the studio.
My favorite of course is Greensleeves.

Better Volumes Available Now 16 Sept. 2007
By AvidOldiesCollector - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD version of an original 1963 vinyl LP (the original cover is shown on the reverse) came out at the dawn of the CD age and, at the time, was eagerly grabbed up by fans of David Seville (born Ross Bagdasarian on January 27, 1919 in Fresno, California).

He had been cutting records since the mid-1950s, scoring in early 1956 with The Trouble With Harry (# 44 Billboard Pop Top 100) under the billing Alfi And Harry, and inspired by the Hitchcock film of the same name. Then, from late 1956 to 1959 he registered six more hits under the billing The Music Of David Seville, the most successful of which was early 1958's The Witch Doctor which hit # 1 on both the Pop and R&B charts.

But later that year, and in time for Christmas, his voice over-dubbing technique hit upon the idea of three cute Chipmunks named Alvin, Simon and Theodore after Liberty Records execs Alvin Bennett, Simon Waronker and Teodore Keep. And with the debut The Chipmunk Song, a whole new industry was born as it soared to # 1 Pop Hot 100, where it remained for 4 weeks, as well as # 5 R&B on Liberty 55168 b/w the Seville solo, Almost Good.

Numerous hits would follow, a few more related to Christmas and usually with a Seville solo as the3 flip, and so when that first LP was released it was gobbled up by fans.

But this CD has long since been surpassed by releases with many more tracks and far better sound quality (on this, the voice of David on Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, is barely legible). Also, there are no liner notes at all.
