Product Description

Amazon.ca

With just about every musical genre under the sun having a Christmas compilation, it's about time that indie had a crack at it. So in 2000, alongside the inevitable (and numerous) Best Christmas Album In The World Ever!-style releases, Jeepster (that bastion of indie credibility) planted its flag with It's A Cool Cool Christmas. And what a line-up it's got: Jeepster's own Belle & Sebastian, Calexico, Saint Etienne, Teenage Fanclub, the Flaming Lips, Gorky's Zygotic Mynci--21 artists in all. Truly, these are the indie elite of 2000, united for a good cause (all profits from this album go to The Big Issue Charities). Although the bulk of the compilation is made up of original or lesser known songs (including Low's superb "Just Like Christmas" from their equally superb Christmas and a happier Eels proclaiming "Baby Jesus, born to rock" on the singalong "Everything's Gonna Be Cool This Christmas"), the biggest gems on It's A Cool Cool Christmas are the new takes on traditional favourites. The Dandy Warhols rock their way through "Little Drummer Boy", Belle & Sebastian shine with "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" and Grandaddy pay fitting tribute to one of their 70s prog heroes on "Alan Parsons In A Winter Wonderland". --Robert Burrow

It's a shame this UK Jeepster/XFM compilation is out of print (originally a project for charity). What a delightful gem of inspired recordings... I grew up listening to the Carpenter's Christmas record, but THIS is what MY kids will grow up listening to! You may want to listen to this even when it's not Christmas--that's how good the songs are. E-mail Jeepster and demand that they re-release this, or find yourself a used copy...

Its an import, its expensive, its worth it. Definitely a cool, fun Christmas cd. St Etienne is a major highlight; this cd features what I think is their best song and is unavailable (as far as I know) on any other album. The Dandys are always fun to listen to. With Grandaddy, Low, and Drugstore, what Christmas compilation could be cooler?
