I enjoy listening to REO Speedwagon, although I don't have a lot of their music. This album containd two songs that I don;t think I've
heard before (The white snows of winter, I believe in Santa Claus). The latter song was written by two members of REO Speedwagon, and isn't remotely like the identically titled Dolly Parton song.
The opening track (The first Noel) lasts less than a minute, but the rest are all full-length songs, although some verses are skipped in Children go where I send thee; it is a very long song if done in its entirety. Apart from the two songs that I hadn't heard before, the rest should be familiar to everybody, though some are more frequently heard than others. All of then sound a little different on this album.
Maybe I need to look again at my modest collection of REO Speedwagon's music to see if I should expand it. This is excellent.

Bought this album a couple of years ago and it surfaces every December and gets played at least once a day. This is a very good CD and I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys rockin good tunes and Christmas songs, with a twist. Buy it, you won't regret.
