5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT CHRISTMAS ALBUM!
I love this album, every song on it is really enjoyable and puts you straight into the Christmas spirit. The songs were recorded in 1971, from the bluesy number 'Merry Christmas Baby' (which was recorded during a jamming session, where as the rest of the songs were planed recordings) to the rocking 'Winter Wonderland'. To me this album is easily as good as the 'Elvis...

3.0 out of 5 stars Blue Christmas
The original Elvis Christmas album is a sensational piece of music making, with awesome blues and mesmorising rock songs, interwoven with Elvis unique and wonderful interpretations of Christmas classics.
"I'll Be Home On Christmas Day" is an excellent folk/blues song; excelllently sung by Elvis who gives a performance of gentleness yet yearning.

The songs were recorded in 1971, from the bluesy number 'Merry Christmas Baby' (which was recorded during a jamming session, where as the rest of the songs were planed recordings) to the rocking 'Winter Wonderland'. To me this album is easily as good as the 'Elvis Christmas Album' from 1956. If you like Elvis Christmas songs, or if you haven't heard them before, this is an excellent album, and well worth your well earned cash.

3.0 out of 5 stars Blue Christmas, 2 Jun 2002
This review is from: Elvis Sings The Wonderful World Of Christmas (Audio CD)
The original Elvis Christmas album is a sensational piece of music making, with awesome blues and mesmorising rock songs, interwoven with Elvis unique and wonderful interpretations of Christmas classics.
"I'll Be Home On Christmas Day" is an excellent folk/blues song; excelllently sung by Elvis who gives a performance of gentleness yet yearning.
The Wonderful World of Christmas, sadly ain't as good; yet still many many astonishing tracks make this CD worth a look.
"O Come All Ye Faithfull" is nothing short of tremendous; sung entirely with choir and huge orchestral backing. This is a priceless performance given excellent treatment by all concerned.
"Merry Christmas Baby" is blues, and ranks high alongside Elvis finest blues performancs...."Reconsider Baby" and "Stranger in My Own Home Town" n included. What an amazing blues singer. This is a devestating performance, blues was in his blood, a Mississippi boy that knew the craft. And this is astounding....the band too, great backing; but driven by Elvis as he shouts "Dig in James..." at his legendary guitarist.
Sadly the rest of the album fails to reach the hights of these performances. Uninspired or too laid back at times; a blue album should have been on the cards......this is not a bad CD, it's Ok, good for the season of good will, but not essential.
