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!

Rod Stewart fans will buy this anyway but if you have never been a fan then try this. Unlike other aging rock stars he has realised that his voice has changed and his versions of Christmas classics is one of the best I've ever heard

I read previous reviews that stated they had problems downloading - no problems at all. I have really enjoyed the American songbook cds and it is true that you could call this the Christmas edition. Rod Syewart is not the greatest singer but the tracks are well recorded, different and very easy to listen to. These days it is not easy to listen to middle of the road music on radio so this is a welcome addition to my I Pod Christmas collection.

Nice while writing cards and wrapping presents, as my daughter thinks. But I can listen to it anytime of the day...
