Editorial Reviews

Dan Hicks serves up his unique attitude and swagger that are embodied in his outlaw eccentricity and totally original sound to the holidays with his latest release Crazy For Christmas. It features original Dan Hicks Christmas tunes, some classic favorites, and a few tunes re-worked for Christmas. He sets these lyrical gems to quirky tunes that trade on a bagful of jazz chords and an irresistible rhythm. This music gets under your skin, and the lyrics are set loose upon your unsuspecting brain. St. Nick is in for one hell of a good time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Christmas album in years November 21, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Christmas albums are usually so annoying! This one is such a home run, though. Great original songs, signature Dan Hicks quirky and cool instrumentation. This will be the soundtrack for our Christmas this year! And I know what to bring for gift exchanges.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thanks, Dan! November 22, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is a lot of fun. It's loose and maybe a little thrown together, but it's musically satisfying and Dan's sardonic take on sentimentality is more welcome than ever during the holidays. "Carol of the Bells" is so cool, I almost wish the sped-up chimpmunk voices weren't on it, but even that is growing on me. A little swing, a little jazz, a little Dan Hicks fun for the holidays. Class entertainment all the way, ladies and gentlemen.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great Christmas album that we listened to frequently during the holidays.Dan Hicks is new music to us and we loved the fresh take on some classics and the witty lyrics of songs we had never heard before. It is fun to find a new favorite!

4.0 out of 5 stars Christmas just got hipper! December 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I only recently heard of Dan Hicks but I love his voice and his style! This album does what many fail to do: it really brings the artist's sound to the holidays. I love the originals (Santa's Workshop is fantastic!) and cannot stop listening to Carol of the Bells! This is one I'll definitely be giving to a few people this year.

Every year I have one CD that I play throughout the entire season. This year it's Dan Hicks. What a refreshing change of pace from the typical Christmas CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Instant Christmas classic December 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Finally not another churned holiday release, but original, endearing and fun. Love the originals, especially "Santa's Workshop". And his scat-version of "Carol of the Bells" is absolutely brilliant. There is also a video for that track that is hilarious.
thanks Dan for warming my Christmas!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like country, blues
Dan Hicks is a true gem. If you like country, blues, big band, real musicians and real singing with a lot of humor, this is the album for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dan Hicks and his Licks
My favorite Christmas music, ever. Beats the heck out of the usual, ad-nauseam programmed drone that usually begins, nowadays, Thanksgiving evening. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Christmas Music, Great Dan Hicks
This album is up there with the best stuff Dan Hicks ever did with the Hot Licks, which means it's very good, indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Christmas CD's of all time.
I like the off beat and funky, so you know where I'm coming from. I also enjoyed Leon Redbone's Christmas album and John Prine's Christmas album.

Beats the heck out of Dylan's Christmas CD (and I'm a huge Dylan fan--I haven't even pierced the shrink wrap on my CD from last year), and, as Christmas albums go, a real departure... Read more
