Product Description

Product Description

28th studio album from the British singer-songwriter. Featuring 'Winter Wonderland', 'Silent Night' and 'White Christmas', Rod Stewart uses his famous husky tones to interpret these classic Christmas tunes.

BBC Review

Rarely are record reviews as pointless as this one. If you know how Rod Stewart sounds, and are aware of these songs’ traditional arrangements (sole new number aside), then you already know what Merry Christmas, Baby has in store. And whether or not you’re going to want to pick it up from one.

But we’ve a page to fill, and you’re here anyway, so let’s dig deeper. Stewart’s voice is a crumbling, crackled thing, ideal for fireside serenades, so it’s not surprising to find the former Faces frontman finally turning in a Christmas collection. He’s lately found a well-fitting niche as a covers singer, too, having released Motown-tribute set Soulbook in 2009, in the middle of his Great American Songbook series. So Merry Christmas, Baby finds the singer safely within his contemporary comfort zone.

But what’s more appropriate for the festive period than a selection that doesn’t stray from the warmth of home? Merry Christmas, Baby ticks every one of the boxes typically accompanying releases of its kind. Does it pack its tracklist with a variety of seasonal standards? Check. Does it add some much-loved carols into the mix, performed with dignified deference? Indeed. And is there a new song, exclusive to the release, which – if we’re all honest with ourselves – will likely be skipped past on the second Christmas Day listen? You betcha.

Red-Suited Super Man (yep, about Santa) is unlikely to join the pantheon of Christmas greats. But the Trombone Shorty-starring cut is at least swaggering, offering contrast to the more studious readings surrounding it. Which isn’t to say the straightforward covers lack for quality: Rod’s White Christmas is gorgeous, but then it’s difficult to do too much of a disservice to Irving Berlin’s malleable classic. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas is stylish and elegant, too.

High-profile guests – Michael Bublé, Mary J Blige, Cee Lo Green – join Rod for a few numbers; but the 67-year-old, officially a crooner these days, never lets them steal the show. Merry Christmas, Baby is one man’s gift to his fans. And, to a man, his fanbase is surely grateful.

I've been a fan of Rod Stewart's since the days of Jeff Beck Group,Steampacket and the Faces, he is without doubt one of the British Rock Greats. This Christmas release though has it's moments but for me somethinmg is missing. Most of it is the Great American Songbook Christmas Edition, which is fine but in this case the songs lack interest,there is no real life or joy of the season to the very well known songs chosen,the arrangements don't get the best out of Rod and at times seem to me to drag along somewhat. The duets are ok but but the one with Michael Buble is very nuch as you would expect,vey MB in style and content.Interesting duet with Ella Fitzgerald which must be an older track as she sadly is no longer with us, with the addition of the amazing Chris Botti on trumpet, it sounds like Rod's voice was added to an original recording,although I could be wrong. I really do like the one with Mary J Blige on 'We Three Kings', this is one track with a great gospel arrangemeny and gives this carol classic a nice fresh sound. The one track that really lifts the whole album is the title song he shares with Ce Lo Green, it's a cracking one full of life and rhythm that gets the toes tapping and it's such a shame more of the album wasn't given more of this type of treatment.
Too many of the songs have been done so many times and appear on pretty well every Christmas release, which also makes this release one that does not rate anywhere among Rod's best, he doesn't do poor albums ever,this one though just lacks that special something I was expecting, but we do get a new rock album next spring so we don't have long to wait.
So an OK album, but nothing more than that,sorry!

I saw Rod Stewart on a TV interview the other week and he sang one of the songs on this album. I thought wow that really sounds good !! I have never bought any Rod Stewart albums before. I was looking forward to buying this CD and I bought it for my (early) birthday present , couldn't wait so I opened it and have really been enjoying it all this week. I love it and all of the songs are great, I love the combination with the other singers too. It has this kind of special, warm, jazzy, upbeat and lovely feel to it. I am truly enjoying "Merry Christmas Baby" all the songs are beautiful. It makes me happy when I listen to it!

What a wonderful Christmas album with Auld Lang Syne reducing me to tears it is so beautiful. The crazy build up to have everything prepared for the festive feast will now be all the more relaxing. Thank you Mr Stewart. p.s. the tidbit for your next album makes me a sure buyer of that one too.

Christmas albums are generally hit or miss affairs. So many different artists have turned in these Christmas projects, with generally mixed results. So how does Rod Stewart's first Christmas album hold up?

Fairly well, actually, as far as Christmas records go. As far as Rod Stewart albums, yet another cover record. For those looking for a rather inoffensive, by the numbers Christmas album, you would do well to purchase this record.

First off, I've never been a huge Stewart fan - I know the radio hits and have heard a few of his albums here and there. For those fans of "Maggie May", look elsewhere. You won't find that Stewart on this record. He's been MIA for years.

And for good reason. Since 2002, Rod Stewart has "reinvented" himself as a rather indistinguishable cocktail lounge singer, covering the "Great Song American Songbook", which as of 2012 there are five volumes and a live album. For a decade, Stewart has been coasting.

Although not officially part of the "American Songbook" series, "Merry Christmas, Baby" is very much an unofficial companion to that ongoing series. The music is mellow, never straying very far from the traditional arrangements we've all heard so many times over. There are the prerequisite duets - Mary J. Blidge joins Stewart on "We Three Kings" and C Low Green makes an appearance on "Merry Christmas, Baby". Even a Disney song shows up ("When You Wish Upon a Star"). Unfortunately, so does Michael Buble on the rather dismal "Winter Wonderland". Sorry, just not a Buble fan. However, all sins involving Buble are completely absolved with the stunning duet with Ella Fitzgerald on "What Are You Doing on New Year's Eve". This track alone is worth the price of admission and is easily the highlight of the entire record.
