7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Martin A Hogan HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 8 Aug 2005
Format: Audio CD
Only John Waters could collect such a strange and horrific collection of Christmas songs. This is more than a novelty. These are very rare recording from the early sixties from the Baltimore area. There are some pleasant numbers, such as, "First Snowfall" which includes a singing saw and "Christmas Time Is Coming (A Street Carol)". However, Waters would be cheating his fans without songs like, "Santa Claus Is A Black Man" sung by a young girl whose voice is as annoying as any spoiled brat who craves attention. "Happy Birthday Jesus" by Little Cindy is by far the scariest piece of Christmas crap ever made with that horrific oratory from a female toddler that will only remind you of the little girl from "The Bad Seed!" If all else fails, 'Alvin & The Chipmunks' are here to remind you of a period you only thought was fun. The album cover is worth the price alone!

You simply have no idea, I promise you. 24 Dec 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album, while not meant for easy listening or general Christmas cheer, is a true gem amongst the zillions of schmaltzy holiday albums foisted upon us every year.

It ranges from saracstic pop (I Wish You A Merry Christmas), to diabetes-inducing child showcases (Happy Birthday Jesus; Sleigh Bells, Reindeer And Snow), to bah-humbug sentiments (Here Comes Fatty Claus), to simply jaw-dropping urban black power sentiments (Santa Claus Is A Black Man), to spine-tingling theremin tunes (First Snowfall).

But I promise you, you'll love every minute, and count your holiday blessings that John Waters took the time to put together this eclectic and genius compilation.

Note: NOT work-safe, for sure. Happy Holidays!

A John Waters thrill ride for Christmas! 16 Dec 2004
By Matthew G. Sherwin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Yes, I know it: it's politically incorrect, rude and silly--but you know what? This CD is AWESOME! As a baby boomer I love the 60s beat of the first track, "Fat Daddy." Great parody of Santa! I had to laugh! GRIN Actually, a lot of this CD has a 60s feel to it. Also funny and very entertaining is the next song "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" sung here by Tiny Tim! And WHO could ever forget the ultimate rendition of "Sleigh Ride" as only Alvin and The Chipmunks could belt out?

This CD is something like what would happen if MadTV or In Living Color from the 90s ever produced a Christmas album! It's funny, well written and it moves at just the right pace. As other reviewers have noted, I am pretty sure that some of these songs would be pretty hard to find elsewhere. That being said--go on out and get this CD for a Christmas time this year embellished with a John Waters twist! Even if it weren't Christmas time it would STILL be a fun CD to have in any collection. GRIN

Sick and Sublime 24 Nov 2004
By Robert Lett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one cool spin, it's like the anti-christmas cd really. I just love it, i've been playing it all week. Perfect antidote to the usual syrupy christmas releases. We should all be in John Waters debt for digging these up, let's all send him a turd or something!

Makes a great gift! 19 Nov 2004
By Paul Silas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the feel good CD of this year's holiday season. And I'm not just saying that because I'm a fellow eccentric from Baltimore! John Waters' musical selections will make you laugh, cry and cringe - sometimes all at once! Everyone in the office is already singing "Here Comes Fatty Claus", "Little Mary Christmas" is resplendent in its awfulness and "Fat Daddy" could only come from...well... Fat Daddy. Buy a copy for yourself. Then buy one for someone you like. Heck, buy it for someone you don't like. Just buy it, already. And Mr. Waters...have a merry, rotten, scary, sexy, biracial, ludicrous, happy little Christmas yourself! Will you be decorating the electric chair this year?????
