Product Description

Amazon.ca

This lavish holiday set has been called the greatest rock & roll Christmas album of all time. That's an opinion that's tough to argue with when you find yourself immersed in the massive sounds painstakingly crafted by legendary producer Phil Spector. His "wall-of-sound" technique is perfectly suited to the music of the season, as he proves with layer upon layer of piano, sleigh bells, buoyant percussion, and, of course, those legendary Spectorsound harmonies. The Crystals turn their sassy interplay into sheer magic on "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town," The Ronettes stroll sweetly through numbers like "Sleigh Ride," while Darlene Love delivers a real knockout punch with her yearning version of "Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)." Sure to become the soundtrack for your holidays. --David Sprague

Product Description

The king of rock-era Xmas LPs returns in remastered original mono for the first time in 20 years! Dig that Wall of Sound: Frosty the Snowman Ronettes; Winter Wonderland Darlene Love; Here Comes Santa Claus Bob B. Soxx & the Blue Jeans; Santa Claus Is Coming to Town Crystals, and the rest of this 1963 holiday classic.

I finally found this on CD!!! YAAAAY!!! I'm 26 years old and I grew up listening to this Christmas CD every year...and we still have the original cassette which does't sound so great anymore!!! This is going to be a huge suprise for my Dad as he's been looking in all of the music stores every year to see if it's been put on CD!! And now it is!!! This has got to be one of the most fun and energetic Christmas CD's of all time and it will get even the scroogiest person out there in the Christmas spirit!!! It's great for Christmas parties!! Thanks Amazon for having this......it will make my Dad so happy to finally have it on CD and make our house hopping at Christmas!!!!!

I read one of the Christmas CDs for this (the only one I think that was bad) and this moron said...'it's starting to show it's age'.....'over produced'. Again, I say MORON. This album is a classic and just because of it's age or Production you cannot deny this is simply the finest Christmas album of all time. If you are going to condemn it due to a Production style that has aged, or technology that wasn't as good...then what's next? 'Mozart and Beethoven out the window because the music is no longer 'hip' ? Tear down the Statue of Liberty...it is old isn't it? This person who wrote that review either has a tin ear...and or simply doesn't know anything about music. The tracks are alive, fun and it still and always will hold up against ANY of the cliche CRAP that's out today. Britney, N'Stink, Any Rap act...anyone of the whiney, played out ...I MUST singing 150 notes for every one written...they ALL stink. Christina, Alicia Keys....Clay , Reuben...all of them are light weights (singing wise)...do you think that 40 years from now ANY of the aforementioned will be remembered? No way.
Buy the album. You won't regret it. Not even 40 years from now. Merry Christmas.
(REBEL AGAINST CRAP MUSIC...(Oops , I mean Rap Music)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have Nov. 28 2003
By J. Kaas
Format:Audio CD
I am 19 years old. This album is older than me but it's what I grew up on for Christmas music. I absolutley love this record, and I am so excited to see it on CD. From beginning to end this album is played several times in my house every year, because I love it so much. You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The classic album Oct. 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album was something of a revolution in its time, at least where Christmas music was concerned, although all that Phil Spector actually did was apply his normal production style to Christmas music.
The Crystals, famous for Then he kissed me and Da doo ron ron, sing brilliant, energetic versions of Santa Claus is coming to town, Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer and Parade of the wooden soldiers. The Ronettes, famous for Be my baby, are equally brilliant on Frosty the snowman, Sleigh ride and I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus. Bob B Soxx and the blue jeans, famous for Zip-a-de-doo-da, also excel on Bells of St Mary's and Here comes Santa Claus.
Darlene Love, whose biggest success was as lead singer of the Crystals on He's a rebel, sings four songs here, a rare chance for her to be credited as a solo performer. Christmas (Baby please come home) is the only original song here. White Christmas includes the rarely heard verse about being in Beverley Hills. The other two, Marshmallow world and Winter wonderland, are also outstanding.
The closing Silent night is just a series of spoken acknowledgements set to a backing track. Don't worry about that - the twelve songs that go before set the standard for Christmas rock albums when it was first recorded and still do, because nobody has bettered it in the forty years since.

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
this album has made itself as traditional as turkey & mince pies.
christmas ain't christmas without these songs, they complete the season, great classics, loved by all generations, everyone can singalong, & also very danceable.
even tho' it's LA, & their palm trees, not xmas trees,
it still sets the mood! party on!

5.0 out of 5 stars I saw Ronnie kissing Phil Spector Dec 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
The greatest rock and roll Christmas album of all time? Yes, it is. Great "Wall of Sound" production and great singing (especially by Darlene Love) on some Christmas classics. Okay, "The Bells of St. Mary's" isn't really a Christmas song (although it was the title song from a Bing Crosby movie), and "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers" isn't really a Christmas song either (although it is about toys), but they do fit in with the rest of the album. The rest of the songs are well known Christmas songs, other than "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)", which is a great song written especially for this album, and "Marshmallow World", which is a relatively unknown Bing Crosby song. This is a classic album that I highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss this one! Dec 6 2002
Format:Audio CD
In the grand tradition of the mentally unbalanced yet undeniably brilliant pop producer Phil Spector, here is a batch of Christmas songs featuring that bombastic yet oh so infectious "Wall Of Sound". And you will love it. The Ronettes, The Crystals, Darlene Love, and Bob B. Soxx & The Blue Jeans. And that mad genius at the helm. It's all great! Don't miss it!!!
