This is it the last Holiday CD I am covering in 2002. After about four of these CDs, my stocking is full, thank you very much. I am about sick of Christmas music by the time the day finally arrives. Perhaps our commercialized society shoving it down our throats makes some of us feel that way. Baa! Humbug!

Well, not when it comes to music like this. I have something fresh and original to put in your stereo this year. A Classic Rock Christmas not only rocks, there are new songs, not the typical standards done with a new twist.

Eddie Money, Styx, REO Speedwagon, and even Father Guido Sarducci get in on the fun on this rockin' good time. If it is a change of pace you are looking for and think kindly of all of those aging but still great classic rock bands, give this platter a spin and you will jingle all the way. Until next year at this time, keep rockin'!

All I Want (Styx) (3:41) / Christmas In Your Arms (Felix Cavaliere) (3:29) / I Believe In Santa Claus (REO Speedwagon) (3:39) / Everybody Loves Christmas (Eddie Money/Ronnie Spector) (4:04) / All I Want For Christmas (John Waite) (3:01) / I Believe In Father Christmas (Greg Lake) (3:35) / Christmas Is Here (Survivor) (4:58) / Santa's Lament (Father Guido Sarducci, Joe Walsh and Joe Vitale) (4:14) / Silent Night (Keith Emerson and the London Community Gospel Choir) (4:36) / 12 Days Of Christmas (Tommy Shaw and Jack Blades) (4:11) / Mary (The Return From Calvary) (Mark Farner) (6:15)
