Product Description

Out of print in the U.S.! Cheerful holiday collection from the King of Rock 'N' Roll featuring yuletide tunes from his Christmas recordings sessions in the '50s and the '70s plus a nugget or two from the '60s. Apart from his charisma, one of the main factors that made Elvis so special was his ability to adapt to any style of music he was recording. If it was a ballad, it made you cry. If it was a rocker, it made you jump out of your seat. But when he sang holiday tunes, it felt like it could (and should) be Christmas everyday. This is the best Christmas collection by Elvis on the market, hands down.

Amazon.com

RCA has repackaged and reshuffled Elvis Presley's Christmas canon yet again, coming up with the 25-track, chronologically sequenced collection pulled from 1957's stunning Elvis' Christmas Album and 1971's lesser Elvis Sings the Wonderful World of Christmas. Just like the U.S. postage stamps chronicling the svelte and the bloated Elvis, this set segments the singer's career into two parts. As a result, it has something for everyone, except perhaps Irving Berlin, who attempted to get Elvis's '57 recording of "White Christmas" banned from radio play, deeming it "vulgar and disrespectful." It was, which is part of why the drastically rearranged tune is so memorable, as the then-young singer masticated the contemporary classic, adding his idiosyncratic dynamics and vocal trills; he turned a white Christmas into white trash with splendid results. Equally irreverent and just as riveting is the King's gritty take on Leiber and Stoller's "Santa Claus Is Back in Town." Also tucked under the tree is his rollicking "Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane)" with the Jordanaires, and the wistful "I'll Be Home for Christmas," which cemented his reputation as pop's top dreamboat. And who can forget the song that changed the hue of Yuletide, "Blue Christmas"? --Jaan Uhelszki

This new holiday release by RCA/BMG is a perfect match for a guy like me - someone who loves Elvis, Christmas time, and crystal-clear digital sound restoration.
European Elvis buffs Ernst Jorgensen and Roger Semon offer Elvis's complete Christmas repertoire, plus several spiritual ballad tracks, in this well-packaged, attractive compilation of 25 Elvis jewels.
I see this collection appealing most to two groups of fans: the first group, to which I belong, are the die-hard Elvis CD collectors. Despite the fact that we have all of these songs on seven or eight separate CDs, we buy to support Elvis, add to our ever-expanding collection of his musical legacy, and bask in the digial remastering that brings every nuance of Elvis's legendary voice into our own homes. I gobbled up this new release knowing full well it had no new material to offer, and within seconds of playing the first track, I knew I would not be disappointed.
The second group that will enjoy this CD are the many fans who may have some scattered Elvis vinyls or CDs and may occasionally hear Elvis Christmas during the holidays. These fans will find this CD a perfect opportunity to have all of Elvis Christmas in one definitive package. As the liner notes indicate, EP's Christmas recordings are an oft overlooked aspect of his recording career - and this collection makes it absolutely clear that this ranks among the most charming Elvis music created.
The musical expanse that is found on this CD largely mirrors the diversity of Elvis's larger musical treasure chest.

This CD has all the songs that were released on Elvis' Christmas albums. Elvis recorded and released 20 Christmas songs during his career. All 20 Christmas songs are included here, plus 5 non-Christmas songs that were originally included on one of his Christmas albums.

Eight Christmas songs were included in his original 1957 Christmas album along with the 4 Gospel songs from the "Peace In The Valley" EP. His orginal Christmas album was repackaged and re-released in 1970 with the 4 Gospel songs being replaced by "If Every Day was Like Christmas" and the non-Christmas song "Mama Liked The Roses." In 1971 his final Christmas album was released "The Wonderful World of Christmas" which included 11 Christmas songs.

Elvis' performance on the songs from both versions of his Christmas album are excellent! Several of these recordings have become Christmas classics, still receiving significant radio airplay nearly 50 years after they were recorded! The songs and performances from "The Wonderful World of Christmas" are just not as strong. Elvis' voice seems to be straining on some of the songs and the material is just not as strong as the earlier recordings.

If you are looking for every song that was included on an Elvis Christmas album (including non-Christmas songs), this is the collection for you. However, if you are just wanting a comprehensive collection of Elvis Christmas music, you would do better to buy the "If Every Day Was Like Christmas" CD. It contains all 20 Christmas songs found here in addition to 4 alternate takes not available anywhere else.

I've seen several people complain about this disc and I have to say, I don't understand it. This disc has all great songs, great sound, what more do you want? It does contain 4 of his '57 gospel songs and his '69 "Mama Liked The roses", which are non-Christmas, but I don't see the problem. They fit in well with the Christmas songs and all of his great Christmas songs are here. I highly recommend this disc.

Before people started treating him as if his birthday should be a separate kind of Christmas, Elvis made a real good early Christmas album around the time of his biggest peak of his songs. The beginning tracks of this album are those great songs done in Elvis style. Some actually are nice and soft renditions of holiday favorites. One of the songs, "Santa Bring My Baby (Back To Me)" takes a lot of the elements of "Teddy Bear". "Santa Claus is Back in Town" is like an old blues standard. Then he just does a lot of songs traditionally like "White Christmas", "The First Noel" and many others but he gives it that vocal that the world has fallen in love with. Elvis takes the Christmas tradition back to church with a few tracks in-between that are gospel and a nice welcome break from the Jingle Bell rocking. These traditional songs will melt you and you won't want to skip them while playing the record. These are also seasonal songs, according to the King. If you find the Elvis Christian hymn side too much to take, don't fear as he gets back to basics with fun songs like "Winter Wonderland" but also more traditional tunes like "O Come, All Ye Faithful".
Needless to say, this Elvis Christmas album gives you a little bit of everything you could want it a Christmas album made somewhere between the very traditional (the Perry Comos) to the modern (sadly, the Christina Aquerlias). With gospel, rockabilly, classic pop and touches of country. I think some people may like the more fun Christmas jamboree songs while others will crave the religious songs more. Take your pick cause they are all on this massive set.
