were recorded some while back, songs such as 'Happy Xmas' (War Is Over) by 'John Lennon' and the Plastic
Ono Band' 'Fairytale of New York' by 'The Pogues ft Kirsty McColl' 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday' by
'Wizzard' 'Merry Christmas Everybody' by 'Slade' and two versions of the charity number 'Do They Know It's Christmas'
by 'Band Aid' 'Mistletoe and Wine' by 'Cliff' 'Step Into Christmas' by 'Elton John' 'Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree'
by 'Brenda Lee' and 'Lonely This Christmas' from 'Mud' among many, just keep turning up in the charts this time of
year, and why not, they were indeed all 'Christmas - Classics'
One of my personal favourites, released during the 70's was 'Greg Lake's' - 'I Believe In Father Christmas'
This 3-CD Compilation contains nearly all the popular songs from down the years in truth including 'Bing Crosby's' classic
'White Christmas' (wouldn't be right to leave that one out on these Christmas releases in truth)
What is nice as an addition to the 'Pop' tracks such as some i have listed is the inclusion of some of the old favourites such
as the ever popular 'Silent Night' sung on this release by 'Sinead O'Connor' along with 'The Twelve Days Of Christmas'
sung by 'The Spinners' 'Walking In The Air' by 'Aled Jones' and ever popular 'Carol' 'Oh Holy Night' sung by 'Il Divo' along
with so many well thought of and fondly remembered Christmas Songs that many of us know so well.
However, one of the biggest Christmas hits of the past 40 years has been removed from this one. Frankie Goes To Hollywood's classic The Power of Love (included on the 2012 compilation in its full five and a half minute glory) has been replaced by Gabrielle Aplin's cover version (the one from the 2012 John Lewis Christmas ad). Although it's a rather sweet version, in the long run it's unlikely to be as enduring as Frankie Goes To Hollywood's original.
Given that there are still two versions of Do They Know It's Christmas included, and a few tracks on cd3 that could be removed without anyone really noticing or caring, this compilation should have found space for both Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Gabrielle Aplin's versions, one being on cd1 and the other on cd3. It's a real shame they haven't done this.
The Now compilers seem to have had a bit of a 'bah humbug' moment this time around. Leaving the 2012 cd alone, and including Mariah Carey would have elevated this one to being the best Christmas cd ever. However, with the removal of such a key Christmas hit they have actually taken a step backwards. Hence the 4 stars.
So, if you want Mariah Carey on your Christmas cd (but no Frankie Goes To Hollywood) then this compilation (with the purple cover) is the one for you. If you prefer to have Frankie Goes To Hollywood (but no Mariah Carey) then go for the one with the red cover.Read more ›
This helps drown out her version of 'last christmas'.
On a serious note it's a good mix of traditional, popular and good old fashioned Christmas songs.
and you can hear festive tunes everywhere, it
puts you in a great mood for Christmas and this
album is just the best shame they don't make
many Christmas song's any more, I use to love
the race for Christmas number one.
Only one small negative the box-set
is poorly made, and mostly made of
cardboard so I suggest you keep it away
from young kids, it wont last long.
