A very special Xmas compilation!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Very Special Christmas 25th Anniversary (Audio CD)
Just noticed this compilation a couple of weeks ago as I usually start thinking of Xmas compilations/albums at this time and what drew my attention to it in particular was the inclusion of Messers Springsteen and U2 with a couple of tracks that you would obviously not get on their current albums! And having played the complete album now a couple of times over, the wide range of artists included here and the songs they cover work really well with the result that this is a hugely enjoyable, contemporary festive feast! And the Springsteen and U2 tracks are great by the way and well worth getting if you are a fan/completist like me.
Nothing schmaltzy about this compilation - great stuff! (Oh and a fantastic version of I Want You To Want Me/I Want You At Christmas by Cheap Trick!).
