By Peter Durward Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on December 5, 2005
Format: Audio CD
Shakin' Stevens (or Shaky, as he is sometimes known) established an excellent reputation as a rock'n'roll revivalist in the eighties, during which decade he had many big UK hits. Some of these hits were covers of fifties hits - they included Blue Christmas, which made number two in the UK charts. Others were original songs including Merry Christmas everyone, which made it to UK number one in 1987. (Note - never confuse this with Slade's 1973 song, Merry Christmas everybody.) In 1991, with the hits drying up, Shaky was encouraged to record a Christmas album and this was been re-released in 2005 after being out of print for many years and following the success of a new hits compilation released earlier in 2005. So if you've got the original, you won't need this.

Understandably, the two big eighties hits are included although these tracks (unlike the rest of the album) have been frequently re-issued on Christmas compilations down the years and will no doubt appear on many more. If you enjoy those hits, you will surely enjoy the rest of this album. Two old chestnuts are given fresh renditions. I prefer Shaky's version of Silent night (taken slightly faster than normal) to his version of White Christmas, but both are very enjoyable. The other eight songs are all originals though one (I'll be home this Christmas) sounds like it could be a sequel to another old chestnut (I'll be home for Christmas) but in this song, he is finally coming home and not just dreaming about it. There are many other fine songs here beginning and ending with up-tempo rockers. The closing track (So long Christmas) is appropriate, as Shaky looks forward to the New Year.

First I bought Shakin' Stevens CD Collection and gave it 5 stars

naming him the best R&R revival artist of the past 25 years. Two weeks

ago I got the Shakin' Stevens DVD collection which holds the 25 songs

of the cd collection plus some 7 or 8 more songs divided into bonus

songs and bonus Xmas songs. When I clicked the first Xmas bonus song

called "The best Xmas of them all" I almost fainted but then jumped up

because I was watching and listening to the best recorded Rock & Roll

song ever! The music, the style of singing, the back-up vocals with

all kinds of doo-wahs, the guitar and piano solos, Shaky's dancing; it

was the essence of the real good old 50's Rock & Roll with the modern

surrounding sound techniques. I immediatley searched for the CD this

song was on and it happened to be a 1991 recording from Shakin Stevens

which was relaunched last year. I received it yesterday and listend to

it last night. The tremendous surprise came with all the rest of the 11 songs.

There are 5 more songs like the mentioned "Best Christmas..."

plus some wonderful ballads plus his #1 song Merry Xmas everyone plus

his unbeatable version of Elvis' Blue Christmas plus his bluesy "Merry

Xmas Pretty Baby" and a totally different approach towards to classic

standars like White Christmas and Silent Night which are of course

beautiful tunes but often too dull. Shaky turns them into authentic

Rock n Roll songs with up tempo versions. The last song of this

incredible CD "So Long Christmas" is the best ending possible.

If you're looking for great rock and roll Christmas albums, this is definitely one for your collection. Shakin' Stevens has hand picked a dozen songs that make a smooth flowing blend of upbeat Christmas music with a twist of old time rock and roll. He wrote some himself, and others were written by people he has worked with before. The musicians are good, and the feeling is upbeat. I highly recommend this one.
