Editorial Reviews

It never snows in the Florida Keys, but as every Parrothead knows, Jimmy Buffett was born on Christmas Day 1946. His Caribbean folk tunes have always had a festive air to them, and his Coral Reefer Band tackle these holiday songs in their usual laidback style. Buffett turns out both traditional carols ("Jingle Bells" with a few tropical ad-libs) and his own myth-building originals ("A Sailor's Christmas," "Merry Christmas, Alabama"). This may not be the traditional Christmas fare of chestnuts roasting on an open fire, but for those who enjoy ocean breezes and "wasting away" to this most successful beach bum, Christmas Island is exactly what the cruise director ordered. --Rob O'Connor

Product Description

Always relaxed and ready to entertain, Jimmy sings Christmas Island; Up on the Housetop; Mele Kalikimaka; Ho Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rum; A Sailor's Christmas; Run, Rudolph, Run; Merry Christmas, Alabama (Never Far from Home) , and more original material and classic carols.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tropical Christmas Paradise December 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD
For years, Jimmy Buffett has put out many classic tunes throughout his career. This holiday album falls true to his reputation.
CHRISTMAS ISLAND is a super holiday album with a tropical twist to it. Not everybody lives in a winter wonderland, and this album is perfect for those who spend the holidays in a warmer climate. Buffett does an excellent job of combining some your favorite holiday classics with a little bit of a Carribbean twist.
Buffett belts out "Jingle Bells" in a way that will have you snapping your fingers and stomping your feet in no time. Other standout singles include the Hawaiin classic "Mele Kalikimaka," and a snappy, toe-tapping, hand-clapping version of "Ho Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rum."
Overall, this is a very peppy album that is sure to bring a different type of joy to your home this holiday season. CHRISTMAS ISLAND is an amazing album and is an excellent gift for this time of year. It is the perfect background music for your traditional Christmas dinner of a "Cheeseburger in Paradise."

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Christmas CD December 24, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've always liked Buffett, but I'm no parrothead. That said, this CD is great! It constantly brings a smile to my face and is great fun to sing along with. I played this at work on Christmas Eve and had people hula dancing to "Christmas Island" and "Mele Kalikimaka". It's also great to listen to in the car as you're stuck in holiday mall traffic.
"Silent Night" and "O Holy Night" have their places at Christmas time, but to really enjoy yourself (and maybe pretend you're in a place where the breeze doesn't freeze your snot) this CD really pulls through.

As I write this review, it is mid October and I'm spending time in Florida waiting for a Hurricane (Wilma) to blow over and dreaming of other places other times. Christmas in Florida is definately "different" than places it is obvious that Jimmy would give us a "yummy" taste of Christmas spent under swaying palm trees or sailing along the shores of the wonderful Gulf Coast. This CD was recorded in 1996 so time has changed many things, if not Jimmy Buffett, who remains confident as ever and uneffected. His Christmas songs remind us of the joy there can be in life. This CD is backed by the ever great "Coral Reefer Band", and made better for that reason. Guest vocalist Melanie Prestidge ads her vocal to "Happy Christmas". My favoite pieces include "Christmas Island", "A Sailor's Christmas", and "Mele Kalikimaka". This CD has lasting power, especially as Christmas 2005 approaches. For those with a penchant for winters in sunny Florida, soft sandy beaches, dreamy tourquoise and peach sunsets, and the clear blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and making a rendezvous with Jimmy on Boats and safe harbors, here's a way to cure your doldrums, even amid typhoons and hurricanes. In your area it may be snow storms and sleet and below zero temperatures. At least in Jimmy's world, it's a celebration of a warmer Christmas season - as children play barefoot in the sand and sail boats are decorated instead of pine trees. Jimmy Buffett reminds us that King Neptune is our Santa instead of Ol' Saint Nick. And the canoe brings presents to place under a coconut palm instead of a snowy sleigh bound for decorated pine trees. The songs in Buffett's Christmas CD show the world the beauty of Christmas in Florida. Hurricanes and all...I'd get this CD and then have a PARTY with some of your very best friends. This CD, of course, would be ideal as sing along music. Jimmy Buffett means PARTY time any time. And this CD is just plain FUN!

4.0 out of 5 stars Hey, they say it's your birthday! It's my birthday, too! December 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is a good album of Christmas music done the way you would think Jimmy Buffett Christmas music would sound. You know, country rock meets calypso. Parrotheads should love it, but other people will probably enjoy it, too. There is a hidden bonus track at the end of the album, which is Jimmy reading "Twas the Night Before Christmas".

5.0 out of 5 stars WORTH 10 STARS!!! August 18, 2001
By Kim K.
Format:Audio CD
No doubt my fellow Parrot Heads will agree that this is definitely a MUST-HAVE holiday album & belongs right alongside other Christmas classics by guys like Bing, Perry, Andy, etc.etc. Sure to bring a smile to your face & help get rid of any Grinch-like feelings! Along with terrific versions of Christmas Island & Mele Kalikimaka, there are plenty of other goodies such as A Sailor's Christmas, Ho Ho Ho & A Bottle Of Rhum & Merry Christmas, Alabama(Never Far From Home). Other treats are Jimmy's renditions of John & Yoko's Happy Xmas(War Is Over), traditional standards like Jingle Bells, Run Rudolph Run & Up On The Housetop. Extremely enjoyable & very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brings the Carribean North in winter May 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Just as with "everyday music," when you're tired of the same old stuff on the radio, be it rap, rock, country, or Montovanni, Jimmy Buffett brings the welcome change of an island breeze. So too with this Christmas album. When you've heard enough of White Christmas and Deck the Halls, Jimmy Buffett takes you someplace different. It's still Christmas, though, and when you get back to Bing, Perry, and the Vienna Boys Choir, you're awfully glad you've had a chance to feel the Island breezes, too. Thanks again, Jimmy Buffett!

5.0 out of 5 stars JIMMY IS THE BEST! December 17, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Yes, fellow parrotheads, he's done it again. Another great album by the king Parrot himself... and just in time for the Holidays! The renditions are great and the original songs are even better! My favorite is "Ho Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rhum". This is definitely a must-have Christmas album!
