Chris at CD Baby

Editors Pick
On their third outing, this stellar trio has made a warm and timeless sounding holiday album that combines the vocal approach of the Andrews Sisters with old-timey folk and country, Western and retro Swing influences, and an extra helping of mid-20th Century nostalgia. Imagine you could clone Alison Krauss as many times as you like and have them sit by the fire eating cookies, drinking eggnog, and singing your favorite carols and Christmas tunes while the Yule Log burned. Well this CD will give you the same sense of seasonal joy without all the necessary hosting, cooking, and cleaning.

Christmas review
Christmas past and present effortlessly rolled into one
Having released their first full length album this year the Good Lovelies are back with an album packed full of Christmas songs. This is a Christmas album with a bit of a twist. Many of the songs are Christmas classics but they are given a make over Good Lovelies style. The album also features a few new Christmas songs. The album gets off to an amazing start with a jazz infused version of the Christmas favourite Santa Baby. Listening to this song it is like you have slipped back in time. Caroline, Kerry and Sue certainly put their own stamp on this popular song. Their vocals are sultry and sexy. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen is given a western swing make over again with a sprinkling of jazz; the end result is different and unusual but also strangely likeable. Mele Kalikimaka is an upbeat song, which has a strong western swing influence once again. Hurry Home is a lovely country/bluegrass song with luxurious vocals and strong traditional musical backing. Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree is given a slight make over. The song takes on a bluegrass feel, which works well. Maybe This Time is a gorgeous song. The vocals are warming and infectious. This is a real highlight! The Chipmunk Song sees the three ladies performing some great harmonies. Another Year To Wait is an amazing song with a strong country influence. I’d Like You For Christmas has a jazz/country feel. I am reminded here of Shelby Lynne. Once again the vocals are highly polished and quite intoxicating. Blue Christmas is given a country make over. This is a lovely version of this classic Christmas song. Silent Night is sung perfectly by the group. The song still retains all its usual classic Christmas features all that has been added is the voice of three talented angels. A stunning version of this song. The album ends with Auld Lang Syne, which has been given a strong country make over. The song has been slowed down allowing the voices of the three ladies to shine and that they most certainly do. This is an excellent version of the song and a fitting end to what can only be described as a magical tribute to Christmas past and present.

Excellent cd -- fun, warm vocals, great harmonies, and excellent instrumentals
I got this cd a few days ago. Since then, I've been listening to it as I drive around town. For the reasons mentioned in my title, it's a very enjoyable cd. Most of the songs are fast-paced and performed in a jazz or retro swing style, but a few are slower tunes. Of the three songs written by The Good Lovelies (#s 4, 6, and 8), my favorite is "Hurry Home". "I'd Like You for Christmas", a song I don't think I'd heard before, is beautiful. Other favorites are "God Rest Ye ...", "Santa Baby" and "Auld Lang Syne". "God Rest Ye ..." is quite fast-paced and is performed in a very jazzy (or swing) style. It was a bit surprising at first, but it's very catchy. "Auld Lang Syne" is slow most of the way, but just when you think the song is over, it starts up again in a completely different style. The inclusion of "Mele Kalikimaka" and "The Chipmunk Song" was surprising, but they've managed to make the former almost hip and the latter more than bearable. I've always found "The Chipmunk Song" extraordinarily annoying, but I kind of like the Good Lovelies' version. I'll be buying at least one or two more copies of this cd to give to family members.
