It seems every year there' s a whole stack of new Christmas collections coming out for us the general public to purchase. Most of them are basically just rehashed and repackaged collections of the same old songs we've heard on previous years collections. Within that tall stack of CD's there's always a couple of fun gems that turn up. Which is the story of Merry Mixmas from Capitol Records. It's an excellent collection of Christmas Classics remixed by the hottest remix artists out there. Of course these tracks are all available on Capitols Christmas Cocktails CD collections volumes 1 - 3 in their original forms. This CD basically collects the best tracks from those CD's and offers them on one CD in the hot remixed format.

The CD starts fairly slow with a Bent Remix of Winter Wonderland by Bing Crosby. This remix sounds so good it doesn't really sound like a remix as it keeps the elements of the original track in this version and it feels like nothings really remixed or done to this track. It's a nice way to start a Christmas CD a slower paced track and build up to the more upbeat versions later on in the collection.

Up next is a fun and lively remix of Nat King Cole's All I Want For Christmas (Is My Two Front Teeth) by MJ Cole. I think MJ Cole has come up with an excellent remix of this classic track which utilizes all of the great vocals with an updated sound but keeping that great retro feel of the original version.

Dean Martin's Baby It's Cold Outside remix by ARP is what follows next. Again with this remix it feels like the original version but there's that added extra beat that the original didn't have. It's quite nicely done by ARP.

These are classic Christmas tunes delicately blended with some new grooves. They have that classic sound that made you fall in love with them in the first place but with an updated groove. If you have listened to other remixed Christmas CD's and found them over-mixed, then give this a listen.

A few songs that stand out are Dean Martin's "Baby, It's Cold Outside" and Ella Fitzgerald's "Sleigh Ride". Both these artists wonderful voices really standout with the addition of a little bassline. Lena Horne's "Let It Snow!" and Nancy Wilson's "Christmas Waltz" put me squarely in the curved booth in the corner with a warm Hot Toddy.

There is also some fun stuff here. Billy May's "Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer Mambo" gives Christmas a latin groove. "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town" with Johnny Mercer is fun and upbeat as is Kay Starr's "The Man With The Bag".

Bing Crosby almost escapes unscathed here.

If you tire of the originals year after year but still think something would be missing without the classics, then pick this up.

The only reason I give this CD four stars out of five is that I do prefer my remixes a little more mixed. I love the Christmas Remixed CD's but I know a few people who think they remove too much from the originals. This CD really stays close to the originals while still adding some great grooves. Merry Mixmas preserves some true classics for a new generation.

I'm one who really likes this kind of funky, ultra-modern mixed up type of music. However, I've found that once you own one or two discs, all the rest of it sounds the same. I took a chance on this one based on reviews I read here, and I was not disappointed. It is GREAT. A total jam from beginning to end. If this is your kind of music, THIS cd will make you very, very happy. The mixes are different- different beats, different voices, different artists. Try it, you'll love it!

I have had this CD for a few years now, and recently noticed there was a difference in the track list compared to the CD and the MP3 version. Thanks to "XmasFLIX" on YouTube for pointing out the following...

Two tracks on the CD are no longer in DIGITAL form.
Theses two tracks are only on Merry Mixmas: CD:
Santa Baby [Alexkid & DJ Seep Remix] - Eartha Kitt
Sleigh Ride [The Latin Project Remix] - Ella Fitzgerald

MP3 album version offers two tracks NOT on the CD.
Theses two tracks are only on Merry Mixmas: MP3:
Sleigh Ride (Ralph Myerz Remix) - Ferrante & Teicher
It Came Upon A Midnight Clear (Charles Webster Remix) - Ella Fitzgerald

That XmasFlix channel has more info, but the video is the version of Eartha Singing live and the remix follows on the same video. Very cool. Get the CD! Since I have the CD I got the 2 extra MP3 downloads. Fab!

I'm a huge fan of Christmas music and holiday music in general, and usually don't think they should be messed with, but Merry Mixmas is the exception. It was remixed in a very subtle way that still allows me to enjoy some of my favorite Xmas songs with a little extra flare.

This one should be bought and listened to while decorating the tree.

I'd say this really was nicely put together album. The artwork let alone and name was clever. It is a nice mix of some holiday classic acts! Well to begin with Winter Wonderland sounds like you are in the mall and is really magical sounding. All I Want for Christmas (Is My Two Front Teeth) because is a real nice jazzy remix of it, but not too much over the top. Baby, It's Cold Outside is unique and has some bass. It goes off the mountain and that is really cool and it gets a little funky. Sleigh Ride is a real nice soulful jazzy take on it. It sounds different but the same. I love the added back up singers and the piano with that sax. Santa Baby is a funny sounding catchy cool remix, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas sounds aquatic and can take you way, Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow is a sweet take. Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer is something else. Everybody is Waiting for the Man with the Bag is a lovely take on the song. I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warn is a real warm, but funny take on the song because of the saxes. It makes me smile. :-) Santa Clause Is Coming to Town is just so banging! It is funny and it will make you want to get up and dance. The Christmas Waltz is so peaceful and warming. A nice magical remix that kind of sucks you in. It will just take you away, and the echoes, oh, the ECHOES are so splendid! I'd Like You For Christmas feel's like a funky ride you go on and you just progress further and further, but stop at a point and then resume. The Merriest is a really lovely nice upbeat remix. The remix of Christmas is Here was nothing that really excited me, but was a cool remix none the less and I understand the idea for it. All in all it is great and has those ones.Read more ›
