Product Description

CD Description

Of all the factors making the more cynical amongst us dread the oncoming of another festive season, the preponderance of the same dozen records spun endlessly across the airwaves and in department stores for months prior to the big day, is one of the most potent. But with a compilation as refreshing, thrilling and eclectic as this alternative yuletide collection now available, with its delightful tunes actually complementing the event in question, the time has come to welcome in the season of goodwill while enjoying the likes of The Reindeer Boogie, North Pole Rock, Mambo Santa Mambo or one of 53 other Christmas Crackers as presented on this 2 disc set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sounds Just Like Christmas 15 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD
I was intrigues by the track titles on this one so I listened to a few of the mp3 samples and was blown away, I ordered a copy straight away! There are loads of amazing X-mas songs on here, and not same tired ones you've heard hundreds of times before on all the other compilations, such as Dolly Nunn's sublime Nuttin For Christmas, and Buchanan & Goodman's genius re-editing of 50's hits into a news bulletin about Santa being abducted by aliens. There are a few well known christmas staples in there as well, but not the versions you've heard every year ad nauseum. For example Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer by 50s doo-wop group The Cadillacs, and Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! by TV presenter and jazz bandleader Lawrence Welk.
I can not recommend this highly enough, buy one now, you wont regret it!

Scrooges, begone, you've come to the wrong place. The subtitle and cover artwork do this fantastic compilation a slight disservice. You could easily mistake this album for some grumpy old alt rock compilation when it's actually two discs of mood enhancing seasonal wonders. Even the song that my title quote comes from, 'Ol Fatso', is a huge snowball of fun rather than a curmudgeonly old dirge of humbug. Elsewhere you've got 'Mamba Santa Mambo' and 'The Reindeer Boogie' to keep spirits the right side of merry.

It does fit its description inasmuch as you'll not hear these songs on your average mainstream 'Now That What I Call Christmas' compilation, save perhaps for Bobby Helms' Jinglebell Rock. For the most part, however, it's a totally refreshing break from the norm, good old rhythm & blues spanning the 30s to the 60s. It's the kind of thing you'd get (and did get) on a Christmas Edition of Bob Dylan's Theme Time Radio Hour.

This double disc set is the best release of its type I've yet to come across in terms of both quality and quantity. I read a review elsewhere which condemned the release for having some 'scratchy' songs, or poor sound quality, scars of the ageing vinyl origins (as well as signs of the rarity of some of these selections). That just adds to the charm and magic for me. Whether it does for you, you decide. Either way, it's on a par with similar releases in this regard.

Beyond that, further words from me aren't needed when you can preview the 30-second clips on this very page and let the music sell itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yule find it interesting 27 Mar 2014
By R. A. Caton TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Once upon a time artists would be pressured to put out a disc at Christmas to catch the Yuletide market - when parents, the elderly and those who were not the regular mass record buying public could be ensnared by novelties and cuteness.
When indeed, the season could be harnessed in many ways - Santa Claus abducted by aliens, obnoxious children who didn't beleive in Santa ... old hits could be given a Christmas slant (check out "Christmas Dragnet" - right, Frank?)
Novelties that appeal or appal include "Nuttin' for Christmas" - if you want the Stan Freberg here call for Dr Demento -
but you'd be hard pressed to get these discs in the original vinyl and shellac these days which makes these CDs extremely valuable.

Country and western? check. Rock 'n' Roll? check. Cuteness? check. GO FOR IT.
