Editorial Reviews

Of all the factors making the more cynical amongst us dread the oncoming of another festive season, the preponderance of the same dozen records spun endlessly across the airwaves and in department stores for months prior to the big day, is one of the most

I bought this collection on a hunch because it listed some stuff I had never heard before. I listened to it over Thanksgiving weekend and was pleasantly surprised. There are some tunes vaguely familiar, like Stan Freberg's "Christmas Dragnet," Santo & Johnny's "Twistin Bells" and the Enchanters' "Mambo Santa Mambo." But hidden among those in this 2 CD set are some rare and unusual material that will make your eyes open up and your ears want to listen. Here are some of my favorites:

Santa's Helper - Joe Poovey
The Mistletoe Kiss - The Keynotes
Cool Yule - Louis Armstrong
Cowboy Santa Claus - Prairie Ramblers
Merry Christmas to All - Al Dexter
Santa & The Satellite (Parts 1 & 2) - Buchanan & Goodman
Ol' Fatso - Augie Rios
Santa Brought Me Choo Choo Trains - Spike Jones
Christmas Boogie - Davis Sisters
The Reindeer Boogie - Hank Snow
I Want a Hippopotamus For Christmas - The Three Stooges

There are some songs you've heard by by different artists, and Bobby Helms' "Jingle Bell Rock" and the Cadillacs' "Rudolph" are here too. A good selection of mostly "off the beaten path" holiday tunes. If you're looking for something different to hear the Christmas, get this. Comes with a nice detailed booklet about the songs too.

Format: Audio CD
I was intrigues by the track titles on this one so I listened to a few of the mp3 samples and was blown away, I ordered a copy straight away! There are loads of amazing X-mas songs on here, and not same tired ones you've heard hundreds of times before on all the other compilations, such as Dolly Nunn's sublime Nuttin For Christmas, and Buchanan & Goodman's genius re-editing of 50's hits into a news bulletin about Santa being abducted by aliens. There are a few well known christmas staples in there as well, but not the versions you've heard every year ad nauseum. For example Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer by 50s doo-wop group The Cadillacs, and Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! by TV presenter and jazz bandleader Lawrence Welk.
I can not recommend this highly enough, buy one now, you wont regret it!

I have listened through this set and, quite frankly, I don't understand the negative comments. Diehard audiophiles won't like it, but the sound quality is not nearly as bad as some have claimed and, when you consider that some date back to the late 1930s, I'd say they've done a marvelous job. In addition, you get a 15-page booklet written by Alan Clayson, a U.K. entertainer (Clayson & The Argonauts) and well-known music biographer and journalist, offering snippets of information on most of the artists involved, sprinkled throughout with vintage photos, all encased in a plastic jewel case inside a cardboard sleeve. If there's a criticism it's in the fact there is no discography giving us labels and years of release, so what I have done - where I can - is provide that information in the Comments section below.

What they've given you here is, in effect, almost an historical account of the evolution of Christmas-oriented tunes from about 1938 to 1968, crossing all genres: Western Swing - Hillbilly/C&W/Rockabilly - vintage R&R - R&B - Doo-Wop - Pop/Novelty - many of them quite rare.

Western Swing: Santa's On His Way - Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys 1949; Merry Christmas To All - Al Dexter & His Troopers 1950; Jingle Bells Boogie - Johnny Bond & His Red River Valley Boys 1950; Rootin' Tootin' Santa Claus - Pee Wee King & His Golden West Cowboys 1950/51; Cowboy Santa Claus - The Prairie Ramblers 1938; Snow Flakes - Cliff Bruner & His Texas Wanderers 1944; Frosty Mornin' - Bill Boyd & His Cowboy Ramblers 1938.

What can I say? This Christmas compilation is exactly what is needed in your collection of Yuletide songs. Most of these tunes are hard to find anywhere else, & rarely get played on radio, satellite or otherwise. Songs like Augie Rios' 'Ol' Fatso', The Youngsters' 'Christmas In Jail', Johnny Horton's 'They Shined Up Rudolph's Nose' & many others are what breaks out of the ordinary & into the extraordinary. There's even artists like Stan Freeberg, Sheb Wooley & even the Three Stooges to make your holiday go in a different & often hilarious direction. A must-have collection to those who wish to try something not-so-mainstream in Christmas music.

This is a good Christmas album and I dont know what those people who dont like this album are thinking. They cant possibly be Christmas fanatics like me. This has a lot of good Christmas songs on it. Augie Rios of Donde Esta Santa Claus fame has another song on here called Ol Fatso. We also have Bucchanan and Goodmans Santa and the Sattellite parts one and parts two on here. We also have Stan Freberg Christmas Dragnet. Not to mention Sheb Wooleys Santa and the Purple People Eater. Then theres a song Spike Jones did called Santa Brought me Choo Choo Trains but Daddys Having Fun. Some of theese songs youll recognise while you wont recognise others but theyre all good and youll like it. Merry Christmas.
