Not a new compilation
on 1 December 2010
I love Mark Lamarr's Christmas Day radio shows - a welcome break from all the usual cheesey Christmas songs. This album collects some vintage tunes, mostly from the 1950s. To be honest, it's not the greatest selection and because it's all in the R&B genre it does get a little wearing if you listen to it all in one go. There are some great tracks on it, but his radio show plays a much wider selection of genres, which makes it more entertaining.
Be aware that this is the same album that was released in 2007 with a different sleeve, so don't get excited if you thought it was something new to add to your Christmas compendium. Come on Mark, how about a new CD of all those great Surf, Soul and Reggae Xmas songs you have in your collection? Now that would be worth getting excited about!
