5.0 out of 5 stars Dion Rocks December 2, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I Have had this CD since it was first released and I cannot wait to listen to it continually every holiday season. Dion puts such great feeling and style into every song. You can just tell his heart and soul and spirit are in every word. When I first heard his version of Oh Holy Night I got goosebumps and I still do. I mean Dion sings it so well and then the backup is totally mind blowing. I cannot say enough about his Silent Night. It too is a work of art as he talks about his Christmas Memories on the streets of New York City. Every other song is also a delight and there seems to be a surprise on each song as only Dion can do it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dion puts the Bronx into Christmas... May 29, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Lets just get this straight right now, there is only one Dion; and that is Dion DiMucci!

In 1993, Dion successfully brought his Bronx sound to the Christmas season. This CD has a great mix of songs that range from the hip version of "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree", rolls on "Jingle Bell Rock", puts Christ back into Christmas in "Silent Night" and hoofs it on "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer".

This Christmas CD has a song for everyone in your family to enjoy. It's a 'must have' for your holiday collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking September 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I can't believe I was not aware of this CD until very recently. Anyone who does not give it 5 stars does not know what they are talking about. Dion sounds as great as he did back in the 50's. The back up singers and music is fantastic. Music needs to be Dion, and he is at his finest here. Yes, there are some songs that give me goosebumps as well.

All I can say is I have been listening to this on my MP3 player while laying out at the pool! nuff said

4.0 out of 5 stars Johnny has a secret, and a secret he must share. December 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Obviously, this is a Christmas album by Hall of Famer Dion DiMucci. There are no new songs on it. All the songs are well known classics that have been recorded many times, but Dion does manage to put his own spin on them. The songs are done in the classic Dion style, and sound like they could have been done in the early '60s, although they were actually recorded in the early '90s. All the songs are very good. This album should appeal to fans of early rock and roll.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Lit Up September 29, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dion's 1993 CD still makes a joyful noise 14 Christmas celebrations later. His take on "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" sets the pace with Jamie "King" Cotton's wailing sax solo, "Everyone dancing merrily in a new old fashioned way!" "Jingle Bell Rock" puts a smile on my face with this nouveau doo-wop version, "Jingle bell time is a swell time to go gliding in a one-horse sleigh." Dion adds a rap into to "Santa Claus Is Coming Town" and then bops out with a rollicking version. "May your days be merry and bright," Dion howls on a midtempo version of "White Christmas." Phil Spector's "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" is polished with the pretty melody sounding delightfully classic. "Please Come Home for Christmas" gets a soulful reading from Dion with a slow smoking 50s-style arrangement. "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" sounds like he was flying low over Jamaica at the time they recorded this track. "Merry Christmas Baby" smokes with delightful relish, "Haven't had a single drink this morning, but I'm all lit up just like a Christmas tree." After a rock & roll blowout, Dion closes with the religious "O Holy Night" done to a catchy beat and full of backup chorus voices. "Rock n' Roll Christmas" by Dion remains a classic holiday set. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars For Dion Fans Only December 14, 1999
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this album, but you need to be a Dion fan too really enjoy it. At the start of "Santa Claus is coming to Town" you think he's going to start singing "The Wanderer". Your not getting Bing Crosby on "White Christmas", but it's vintage "Dion". "Long Live Dion"

5.0 out of 5 stars For All Rock Fans December 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is really an X-Mas treat for all Rock fans, as well as Dion followers. The tunes are familiar, but the treatment is pure Dion of the 90's. Sample some and you'll see! Dion's voice is superb, as are the vocal backgrounds and the instrumentals. Especially love "Christmas (Baby Plese Come Home)" and its sax riff. You don't have to celebrate Christmas in order to love this album!

2.0 out of 5 stars Dion--Christmas
Dion has some musical abilities and a pleasant enough voice when arranged decently. But he has also made a bunch of throwaway CD's since his R & R success phase dimmed. Read more

This is a modern Xmas album that rocks. If you enjoy that early 60's sound, than this is the perfect Xmas album for you. Highly recommended.
