Soundtrack to Christmas with pop and traditional treasures,
This review is from: Christmas Peace (Audio CD)
This Christmas compilation is a compilation taken from Elvis's two big selling Christmas albums from 1957 and 1971, plus the track from 1966, "If Every Day Was Like Christmas".
It's the perfect seasonal offering that mixes some well known bluesy, pop tunes such as the classic "Blue Christmas" and "Santa Clause Is Back In Town" with beautifully performed traditional carols of the likes of "Silent Night" and "O Come All Ye Faithful".
I've always loved the feeling of the bluesy riffs in "Blue Christmas". "Merry Christmas Baby" is an epic performance. The 1957 Christmas top 10 hit "Santa Bring My baby Back to Me" is a slice of seasonal rock 'n' roll.
For the carols Elvis draws on his love of gospel music to deliver top quality performances that can't be matched elsewhere.
The effective and effortless combination of pop and traditional is a factor that makes this Christmas CD both unique and the perfect soundtrack to Christmas.
