5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas On the Fellside, 29 Nov 2013
The Fellside label of Northumberland has been in existence for years,makes very little money and should be supported.
Wassail is as it says a traditional exploration of the Christmas season and has a booklet of explanatory notes which tells you all you need to know

3.0 out of 5 stars One of the Pure CDs, 29 Nov 2013
This review is from: Pure... Christmas (Audio CD)
With Christmas songs from the 40s to the 2000s there's plenty of variety.
Possibly this is a first time on CD for Silent Night by BROS-the only act to ever chart this song in the U K

3.0 out of 5 stars Christmas at Union Square, 29 Nov 2013
Calling a collection the Greatest Ever is leaving you wide open.
Understandably it won't appeal to that many as we don't all like James Brown or Michael Jackson and like me some may think the Chris Rea or Frankie Goes To Hollywood don't sound like Christmas songs
This 3 set could be the first time round for Gilbert O'Sullivan's I'm Not Dreaming Of A White Christmas

3.0 out of 5 stars Rhino's take on Christmas, 29 Nov 2013
Loses 2 stars because of the hideous Pogues which should have been last if they must include it
Its on CD 3 you find the most exclusives via the Pet Shop Boys,the Wombats,Mick Hucknall,Everything But The Girl,Chicago,Hot Chocolate and Donna Lewis
En Vogue's version of Silent Night is,like the one by the Rotary Connection,more about the song

Christmas Night

Price: 9.93

5.0 out of 5 stars More Medieval Babes, 29 Nov 2013
This review is from: Christmas Night (Audio CD)
The sound of harps is synonymous with Christmas and this act of 3 girls and a guy is supplanted ny medieaval instruments and a single voice in Lori Papajohn
The soundtrack to Heaven


Jewels Of The Past - Music Hall And Variety Gems
Jewels Of The Past - Music Hall And Variety Gems
Price: 5.69

4.0 out of 5 stars First time on CD, 29 Nov 2013
This is like a belated companion to Roy Hudd's book MUSIC HALL which was published in 1976.Well worth picking up if you can find a copy but it will cost more than the original price of 1.95.Ends with Hudd's own contribution The Night I Appeared As Macbeth


A Traditional Christmas
A Traditional Christmas
Price: 9.70

5.0 out of 5 stars The days of Christmas Past, 28 Nov 2013
This review is from: A Traditional Christmas (Audio CD)
With a booklet describing the history of Christmas on record from the 40s to the 50s this as a 43 song selection on 2 CDs
Its from a time when Christmas songs sounded like Christmas songs
If you type in the title you don't get this you have to type in Memory Lane


Christmas Carols & Songs
Christmas Carols & Songs
Offered by re-vived
Price: 7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The true meaning of, 28 Nov 2013
I checked Wikipedia for the meaning of IKOS and was redircted to a page called KONTAKION which basically means Nativity Of Christ as in the Greek Byzantine Church
Whatever this is a 5 piece vocal group supplemented by both a Boys Choir and a Girls Choir.On 2 of the songs Jane Siberry appears and was probably recorded in her native Canada
In other words a lot of work for a CD which will probably be lost in the Christmas rush


Of Kings And Angels - A Christmas Carol Collection
Of Kings And Angels - A Christmas Carol Collection
Price: 8.62

5.0 out of 5 stars Medieval is the new rock'n'roll, 28 Nov 2013
This is the 2nd Christmas CD the first being a compilation from a girl group who manage to make everything they sing sound like a Christmas song.
This time round they stick to the standard carols rather than the obscure

Let Us in Nashville
Offered by Fulfillment Express
Price: 12.22

5.0 out of 5 stars More McCartney covers, 27 Nov 2013
This review is from: Let Us in Nashville (Audio CD)
A companion volume to the Let Us In Americana which has been endorsed by Paul McCartney though neither have been made available here.
Most unusual item here is a Cajun version of Mull Of Kintyre
Both volumes are for charity
This one has quotes from all the artists inside the enclosed booklet
