ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Night before Christmas and all through the city
Every creature was stirring and dressed up real pretty
The kids were all posed in the bright nightclub light
Waiting for something special to take flight.

What do you do on a porch in Florida, in early October? Of course you conceive a Christmas record while drinking Gin and tonics, under Spanish moss. Not quite Handel's Messiah. Not quite egg nog and Mistletoe. Not quite. Not quite Perry Como and Bing Crosby either. Not quite.

See, the sugarplums Cathryn Rich dreamed of were some of the best up and coming bands of the next wave of rock that has exploded in the past year and a half in New York City. And the songs were Christmas classics from the Rankin/Bass stop-motion Rudolph stories.

Still, to record, mix and master in less than five weeks, then get the records pressed for a December 2nd release date, would take more than a miracle on 34th street. It would take a hustle on forty-deuce to succeed.

Yes, New York City, there is a Santa Claus.

A kick-ass album from start to finish!! Christmas has come early!
This comp totally sounds great. I've heard a lot about these NYC bands and frankly didn't believe the hype, but then I heard some of these raw-powered covers and not only was I won over, I was hooked. Standouts for me are the Miami Relatives, The Spicy Ri zzacks, The Great Shakes and The Inflatible Men. I wish there were more songs, that's my only critiqueˇ

Grab this now!!
This is what makes collecting Christmas music worth it. This collection is a pure joy through and through. It will appeal to fans of pop punk (Green Day, Less Than Jake, Groovie Ghoulies...) And the Hissyfits "Blue Christmas" starts slow and works itself into one of the best versions ever recorded. The Spicy Rizzaks and Hot Socky will be investigated further. Buy this before it disappears, it's a keeper.

I love this CD! Great to shake up those holiday parties and give your guests something truly entertaining instead of the typical holiday standards. Your Christmas season cannot be complete without this disc. Pay close attention to my favorite track...Heat Miser.

great Christmas comp. Buy it now!
This Christmas compilation rocks! Put One Foot In Front Of the Other is one of the greatest songs ever written and it sounds awesome as a punk song. And finally we get a version of Blue Christmas that actually sounds sad! Buy this now!

It Roasted My Chestnuts
Kickin compilation, lots to choose from, all of it likeable, groovable, digable. I'd love to see what the producers and musicians can do with Easter, Hannukah, etc. This could get to be a regular thing. Keep it up and out y'all.

Absolutely LOVED IT!
I LOVED this CD - I am a DIEHARD fan of The Year Without A Santa Claus, so I was skeptical. I loved the version of Heat Miser - it makes for an interesting Christmas mix - different from the traditional Christmas tunes. Would highly recommend!
