Mambo Santa Mambo: Christmas From the Latin Lounge

You could learn to mambo for that upcoming New Year's Eve party. Or you could pick up Mambo Santa Mambo and get that bad groove before its 18 tracks are over. Packed with delights and surprises, it mines the past 40 to 50 years of prime-time Latin Christmas tunes--complete with campy, cheesy, and cool Yuletide vocals--and succeeds mightily. Who could resist the outrageous Billy May & His Orchestra's version of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," or the young and innocent Augie Rios asking "Donde Esta Santa Claus?" Knock-out vocal performances from Latin queen Celia Cruz ("Jingle Bells" and "El Cha Cha Cha De La Navidad"), plus the Enchanters' great holiday update of Lou Bega's recent hit ("Mambo Number 5," here called "Mambo Santa Mambo") make this a must-have disc for a truly feliz Navidad. --Martin Keller

Of course it's fun to add a new "sound" to your collection of Christmas classics... I know there are better alternatives. I found this one to be more annoying than interesting.
If you hate buying a CD only to find 2 good songs, you've been warned.
If you'd like to pick up a copy for cheap, check out the Salvation Army, that's where mine went.
The tempos vary within each track, and so newer dancers may have trouble staying with the beat. Here are the titles, durations, a suggested dance, and the performers for each track.
