Easily one of the best Christmas CD's, almost up there with Spector's. And on top of that a good contemporary blues album as well, with a feel good vibe all the way through. I bought it out of curiosity but come December play just about nothing else in the car. Too often Christmas music equals damp eyed schmalz, this is dance round the room and jive Christmas.

If you like the blues, this is the Christmas album for you! 2 Dec. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This compendium of holiday tunes performed by various artists in the Alligator Records stable has become one of my favorite Christmas albums. Featuring performers like the fabulous Koko Taylor, Elvin Bishop, and Saffire, it provides a get-down alternative to the saccharine fare being offered up by so many labels. Without exception, the cuts are distillations of each artist's style - complete with humorous double entendres and top-notch production. Get it -- if only to save yourself from one more wimpy rendition of The Little Drummer Boy!

I love this collection of bluesy Christmas music!! 5 Dec. 2008
By Sandy Kay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have so many Christmas CDs that I often can't get to them all during the season. But no matter how short of time, I always make sure to play this CD!

One of the reasons I like it so much is that it is not your typical Christmas collection. Of the 14 tracks, only two are mostly traditional and religious ("The Little Drummer Boy" by Elvin Bishop on guitar and "Silent Night" by Charles Musselwhite on harmonica) but they are instrumentals. One more is a traditional carol but played in a nontraditional style ("Deck the Halls With Boogie Woogie" by Katie Webster). The remaining 11 are not like anything on the rest of my Christmas albums. Despite being the blues, all but 2 of those are really upbeat.

This would be a good CD (or MP3) to play at a holiday party, either for background music or (with many of the tracks) dancing. One of my friends who does not celebrate Christmas heard it in my car and wanted to get it for herself. I like playing it in my car and when I want a little pick-me-up around the house during the holidays.

By Maureen Hennessey - Published on Amazon.com
I love Christmas and one of the most exciting parts is while we decorate the tree (first weekend in Dec) we always have some bubbly and break out the CD's ....this is ALWAYS the first! If you love the blues...you will love this CD. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Listening to it right now in fact!

Solid collection of holiday themed blues 22 Jan. 2009
By Michael J. Melton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
These songs are not throw-aways but a great collection of electric originals that really make the season bright. Good variety and mix of tempos. If you like blues I would be surprised if you are disappointed with this collection.
Oh Wow! 24 Jan. 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This collection will completely surprise the casual listener or Christmas music fan. Hey, even hardcore blues fans will appreciate music that wasn't "forced" to sound like Christmas music and at the same time not lose that seasonal flare. Yeah, the melody of "Jingle Bells" was used a few times as a "riff" in some songs, but it was done well and with great variety of style and choice of instruments.

Overall, this is a very cool CD to have and listen to.... even at Christmas time.........
