5.0 out of 5 stars The only Christmas album you'll ever need 28 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
Christmas is a difficult subject, musically, carols excepted. There are a lot of cheesey listening albums out there and apart from the truly great, like Nat King Cole, it is difficult to find something that is pleasant to listen to and gives a different treatment to the old chestnuts roasting on the turntable.
Steve Tyrell has provided the solution. With a voice that combines some of the gravel of Dr John with the swagger of Frank Sinatra (while sounding nothing like him) and some excellent big band and lazy blues arrangements by Bob Mann (who also plays a fine guitar) life has been breathed into the seasonal repertoire.
All the favourites are here, from "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" to "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?". With the aid of a white-hot backing band, and guest Clark Terry on trumpet he even makes "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" sound cool.
Many of today's pop, rock and jazz stars have attempted to make good Christmas albums recently and largely failed. This is truly the exception and deserves to be the only one in your CD player's stocking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just another Kissmass album? 30 Dec 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dont want a "another" christmas album? Want one that is a christmas album that represents christmas but is nice to listen to? Perhaps you'd like something deifferent? Perhaps this should be described as an "adult" christmas album. After all you dont want to be seen as having too much bah humbug but some albums are too in your face. You have just found a christmas gem! Possibly even a soppy romantic "Kissmas" album. We all know about first dates and asking someone out, but the way track 11 covers "what are you doing new years eve?" is very delicate and just as tentative as asking someone out for real! Rudolph the red nose reindeer is covered in an almost bluesy fashion with a lovely jokey bit of laughter at the end, you can imagine the band dressed up in Father Christmas outfits singing this for fun! I played this to a friend's children and they thought it was very different in a nice way! Yes Tyrell has done it again and given you the chance to enjoy more of his huge talent. If you didn't get it this christmas (2004) its got to be the must have for next year! Try playing this if you are out collecting for charity and see if your collections improve, I think they just might! Happy Kissmas!
