Singer/songwriters seem a little baffling, regurgitating well worn songs you've heard a million times before.
So it was kind of inevitable that Dylan (being the subversive soul that he is) would record his interpretation of this musical tradition.
Bob must have been a fan of the 1940's-50's style of Xmas music, as most the album has been recorded in that style, quite syrupy with male & female backing singers (which does magnify Dylan's short cummings as singer).
The most successful tracks on the album ("The Christmas Blues" & "Silver Bells") are the ones that have been stripped down with Dylan performing solo, but the absolute highlight is the Pogue's inspired "Must be Santa", a bona-fide Yule-tied classic.
Very much a tongue in cheek, almost anti-Christmas (kind of a punk mentality) album & quite fun to play on Xmas day to folk who have know Idea who his nibs is!
No. 1, this album is a non-profit project inspired by Bob Dylan and could potentially help make millions of people in our society a little less hungry this year. So, you really can't go wrong there. And of course it makes perfect sense too. A Christmas album for charity!
2, Like almost all of Dylans albums, you have to listen to it at least 2-3 times to really begin to 'hear' what's going on and then you say to yourself, "Wow, this dude is right on. I dig this sound and it's so original"
Well, that's what you'll be saying to yourself after listening to this album. And that's what makes Dylan so special. He's constantly reinventing his own musical sound and image and his albums always have something in them to inspire. All of these songs are very happy and cheerful. A very different approach from what most Dylan fans are used to hearing from him. Also, the entire album was produced by Bob Dylan who has been producing his own albums with great success now for quite a few years.
Produced by Bob Dylan-AKA-Jack Frost
It's an entertaining album and a pure original that leans on a very clean 1940's-50's type of sound that Dylan has been into for quite awhile now.Read more ›
If you want a Christmas album sung with heart and sincerity I suggest Christmas by Alabama.

Bob Dylan rarely fails to hit the mark. A collection of favorites with the Masters vocals adding his own take.Published 4 months ago by Stephen Collins
Love Bob Dylan all the time in every way. What a wonderful sense of humor.Published 18 months ago by snowyowl
This is the worst CD I have ever heard in my life. Bob cannot carry a tune and his voice is in such bad condition that he sounds like metal grating on metal. Read morePublished on Jan. 7 2010 by Joy Mcderment
I'm very interested in this cd but haven't given it a listen yet because it's not Christmas time.
I'm sure that it will be a very well done effort be the man. Read more
