Reseña de álbum

Darlene Love has a bit of a background in Christmas music; in the '60s, she was one of the best vocalists in Phil Spector's stable of studio performers (recording under her own name and as part of the Crystals and Bob B. Soxx & the Blue Jeans) and sang lead on the best track on Spector's fabled A Christmas Gift for You, "Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)." Forty-four years later, Love has cut another seasonal set, and It's Christmas, Of Course is a fine and rollicking set of Yuletide rock and R&B. Here Love handles a dozen tunes previously recorded by a wide variety of acts, ranging from Tom Petty's "Christmas All Over Again" and the Pretenders' "2000 Miles" to NRBQ's "Christmas Wish" and "Thanks for Christmas," written and recorded by XTC under the alias "The Three Wise Men." While Love was pushing seventy when she cut these sessions, she sounds just as lively as she did when she was an integral part of Spector's Wall of Sound, and if anything her sense of phrasing and selling a song has actually improved; she brings a superb sense of lover's melancholy to "2000 Miles" and adds an appropriately churchy tone to "Who Took the Merry Out of Christmas" and "Christmas Must Be Tonight," while swinging hard on "What Christmas Means to Me" and "Santa Claus Go Straight to the Ghetto." Even Billy Squier's forgettable "Christmas Is the Time to Say 'I Love You'" sounds great in Love's hands, and her version of "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" sounds both timely and powerful. The production from Shawn Amos and Kevin Killen is straightforward and effective, and the arrangements are concise but strong enough to support Love's vocals. While many holiday albums sound like quickly recorded afterthoughts, It's Christmas, Of Course is as strong as anything Darlene Love has cut since her 1998 gospel disc Unconditional Love, and it's great stuff for your next Yuletide party.

Oh yeah!

Darlene is back with a new studio album ... thank goodness. Her Christmas gift to us. Thank you, Darlene! I asked her a couple years ago when she was coming out with a new album. "They don't think anybody over 30 can record anymore," she told me. She's proved them quite wrong with his holiday offering. This project could have been another tired collection of overly recorded Christmas music, but Darlene and her producers smartly went with lesser recorded tracks. On repeated listenings, it's simply difficult to get tired of hearing to this album. Help get the word out: Darlene Love is back in the studio, putting a new, much-needed shine on the holiday music scene!

A Welcome Surprise...

...and a solid follow-up to Darlene's holiday material from the classic 1963 album, "A Christmas Gift For You from Phil Spector". Here Ms. Love easily handles some of the best yuletide classics from the 70's and 80's. Be sure to snag this along with "A Christmas Gift.." for your next big Christmas party!

Ms. Love Is Back

This album is incredible it has that live feel to it. ms Love handles all the material as if she wrote the songs herself. I love her thunderous voice and it has gotten better with age. Christmas Must Be tonight is excellent, and her take on merry xmas with cissy houston is classic. I Love Darlene Love

Amazingly, Darlene Love, a superb vocalist, hasn't had much of a track record as a solo singer, at least not in terms of hits. Love was a founding member of the Blossoms in 1957. They did several sessions and were resident singers on the television show Shindig. Love sang lead vocals on "He's a Rebel," which was credited to the Crystals, and "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah," which was issued under the name Bob B. Soxx & the Blue Jeans. She cut six singles for Spector's Phillies label, with "Wait Till My Bobby...
