5.0 out of 5 stars Have a blue Christmas, a white Christmas and a great Christmas with this album!,
This review is from: Christmas Peace (Audio CD)There are a few Elvis Presley Christmas albums out there but this one is definitely the best! This album has all the original versions of the songs, whereas the other compilations are either overdubbed with a duet or it's an album with some of these songs on and duets. I bought
this back a few years ago. I am not much of a fan of Christmas music in general and it seems to be the same old generic stuff on the radio and TV every year but this album is different.
As a massive fan of the man it was an easy choice for me to make because Elvis can sing just about anything and everything and it sounds good, so I knew this album was going to be the same. I was definitely not proved wrong; it's a very impressive and fantastic Christmas album. The CD has 20 of Elvis' Christmas songs from 1957- 1971. The album is a compilation of 2 original Christmas albums - 1957's 'Elvis Christmas album' and 1971's 'Elvis sings The wonderful world of Christmas' with the single 'If Everyday was like Christmas' from 1966in between. As a result we have pure Elvis Presley - not any remixes or overdubbed songs - these are in their original form just digitally remastered versions. This is why this album is far superior to any of the other compilation albums and if you decide to buy any Elvis Christmas album make sure it's this one. It's an album nobody will regret buying!
The original songs are just fantastic Christmas treats. Santa bring my baby back to me and Santa Claus is back in town are brilliant (the latter written by the writers of Hound dog Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller). Some of the songs I hadn't heard before which is a treat because most Christmas albums usually have the same covers which everyone has heard before. The covers are really good and probably some of the best covers of these traditional songs that anyone has done. White Christmas had a lot of controversy surrounding it on its release with the composer calling it a "profane parody of his cherished yuletide standard" and was banned from many radio stations! The first 8 tracks definitely convey the spirit of a more fun, young Elvis whereas the 2nd part of the album is smoother and more soulful.
This is 1 of the greatest Christmas albums out there by far and one you will want to pull out over the festive season for many years to come!

This review is from: Christmas Peace (Audio CD)Bought this CD a few years ago and I love it. I love Elvis no matter what he sings but this Christmas CD is really very good and is a must on my Christmas playlist. Number 6- "Santa Claus is back in town" is one that really gets me moving. I love how this CD has a good mix of fast and slow songs. Elvis is Awesome!
