Lightbulb The Holidays are Coming, The Holidays are Coming!!

Hi all
Apart from Glenn's album , can anyone recommend any Christmas/Holiday music so that I can avoid listening to this year's "Now that What I Call (recycled) Xmas (pap)".You know,same songs,different cover!
I'm looking for something in the Rock and/or Soul vein & would appreciate your suggestions.
Have a great time,everyone!
Cheers
Ben

Well, I'm completely bias here, but you did ask

You should try out Heart's Christmas album:

HEART - A Lovemongers Christmas

Great stuff and very festive - do check it out

You mean besides "Soulful Christmas" of course!!!!!
Well, for my taste, you couldn't do better than the all-instrumental:

"A Guitar Christmas"
and
"More Guitars for Christmas."

(Notice a pattern, here. Ha, ha.)
Lots of different guitarists, lots of different styles;
some are religious Christmas songs, some are not.
But if you like rock and you like Christmas, then this album is for you.
I hope that you'll enjoy listening to it!!!!!
Grace

I recommend Jethro Tull's "Christmas Album". If your into Tull that is.

It was reissued this year in limited quantities with a bonus dvd that has four selections off of their 2002 dvd, Living With The Past.

Hey Grace,

that sounds extremly interesting! Is that CD or are those Cds available at Amazon.com or elsewhere? Would also imagine these as a special christmas gift! Better than George Strait......
But...I have to confess.....Im a true Martina McBride fan...her voice is breathtaking, no matter what style she does. As far as I remember ...she once did also a christmas CD.
Anyway..I wish you a merry christmas just in case that we dont meet here again since then. Have a great one with your family and enjoy the feeling of these special days!

cheers, Achim

Hi all

Thanks for the suggestions so far, I'll try & check them out ( Great Heart website by the way,Shirean.)
Grace, I've come across "Merry Axemas" vols 1 & 2 ,since my original post - are these the same as a "Guitar Christmas", I wonder? Features people like Joe Satriani doing Silent Night & Steve Morse "Joy to the World".
Thanks again
Ben

That's it, Ben. I'm sorry I confused you......
I didn't have the album right in front of me.

The titles of both these albums are both:
"Merry Axmas - A Guitar Christmas"
"Merry Axmas - More Guitars for Christmas"
(Imagine......ME.....getting mixed up over AXES!!!)

It has a cartoon drawing on the cover, of guitars
hanging from the mantle, instead of stockings,
and a pile of guitars burning in the fireplace.

I've had these two albums for 2 or 3 years,
but they usually re-issue Christmas albums each year,
so I assume that they're still available.

The nice part is that you can set you CD player's memory,
and have only religious songs, or set it for "party-mode"
(Jingle Bells, Rudolph, etc). They also have "Christmas
Time is Here" from the Charlie Brown Christmas cartoon,
done as smooth jazz. Very nicely done.

Now that I've recommended them, I hope that you'll
all be able to get them.....you can play the tracks loud,
or softly......a great mixture. Either album #1 or #2.

Hey Achim.....it goes without saying, that I hope that all of our GHCP's
(depending who celebrates what) will have a lovely holiday season.

Grace

I like Mannheim Steamroller. Their Christmas stuff always gets me in the spirit of the holiday.

PS, Achim.........I just checked, and both of these two
"Merry Axemas" albums are available on Amazon.com.

Read the other reviews that are posted there,
and I hope that you'll enjoy whatever album/s you get.

Have a Merry Christmas!
Grace

How kind of you to give me that compliment!

HEY SANTA.......notice how "nice" this guy is being,
and just a week before Christmas, too

Well, Achim, as I frequently tell my two daughters,
"If I ever get a tattoo (never) it will say...What goes around,
comes around." So I was glad to share the information with
you about those 2 albums. You don't have to stop listening
to them on December 26th, because great guitar instrumentals
are still great guitar instrumentals, any time of year.

Although computers, and e-mails, and websites are now
commonplace, it still amazes me that we GHCP's are located
all over the world, and can become friends because of our
high standards in music......namely Glenn Hughes!!!

When I have some liebekuchen (spelling?) I'll think of you!!!!!
"Merry Axemas" and Merry Christmas,
Grace



PS..........Ben - I know what you mean about listening to horrible
Christmas songs. So help me, if I go into one more store and am
forced to listen to Brenda Lee sing "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree"
one more time, I will be forced to kill somebody with my "Christmas AXE!!!!!"

Icon37 X-mas music...

Hello!

I have strange feeling that Santa is bringing me this album: www.santamental.com/fans

I dunno whether it is good or not...I'll listen to Glenn's X-mas album anyway...
