Neato happy fun! -- ADDreviews.com, December, 2002

Product Description

Christmas In Memphis was born out of Dave Amels' and Dennis Diken's unswerving mutual jones for making cool records. Dave and Dennis, also known as Husky Team, are a recording and production duo. They felt (and Confidential Recordings agreed) that the time was ripe to meld some of their yuletide faves with a classic Memphis feel, as defined by the likes of Elvis Presley, Willie Mitchell and Stax Records.

Dennis Diken has drummed with The Smithereens for the past 22 years. In addition, he is a session player and a writer, and has compiled, researched or authored many CD reissue liner notes, including The Beach Boys; Dino, Desi and Billy; The Four Freshmen and The Lovin' Spoonful.

Dave Amels DJs on legendary free-form radio station WFMU, and is a patented inventor of keyboard instruments. He is an in-demand session musician and has played and recorded with artists including The Dictators, Swingin' Neckbreakers and Lenny Kravitz.

Holiday spirits are running high on Christmas In Memphis. From the sleigh bells jingling 'round Brooklyn to the frosted gables of Graceland, this collection will continue to be a delight long after the Christmas tree has finally been put out on the sidewalk.

Format:Audio CD
Here's a fun Christmas album from 2002 on which organist/inventor/WFMU DJ Dave Amels and Smithereens drummer Dennis Diken give a Stax-styled instrumental spin to a slate of holiday classics. From the opening of the Beach Boys' "He's the Man with All the Toys," you get plenty of smooth organ, deep bass, twangy guitar, punchy drums and the funky vibe Stax created in their Memphis studio. A few numbers roll in iconic MG riffs, such as the organ and guitar of "Green Onions" behind the Husky Team's version of "Auld Lang Syne," but for the most part the players just revel in the Stax sound and groove. For the real thing, check out Stax's Christmas in Soulville, but as a fine instrumental tribute, these super soul Christmas classics will warm you as if you'd thrown another log onto your holiday music fire. 3-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings.
