12 Songs, 30 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Elvis begins his 1957 Christmas collection with a run of festive favorites that look to the recent past (the gently swinging “Here Comes Santa Claus” and “White Christmas”) and the raucous rock ‘n’ roll present (“Santa Bring My Baby Back (To Me)” and “Santa Claus Is Back in Town”). Then, after a couple of sober carols (“Silent Night” being particularly reverent), there’s a suite of gospel hymns, including the showstopper “Take My Hand, Precious Lord,” all sung with the total sincerity of a true believer.

Elvis Rocks Christmas

One of the all-time great Christmas albums. The first half has Elvis rocking out to some classic Christmas tunes like only he can while the second half focuses on the more religious aspects of the holiday in a more reserved fashion. Everything on this album is fantastic. About the only thing that could make it better would be if Elvis' definitive version of Sliver Bells had been on the original album. If you like Christmas music, this is a MUST.
