Vince Vance & the Valiants have always had that special something that makes it hard to dislike them. For whatever reason, they are able to crank out tunes that are easy to enjoy. Obvious influences of 50's rock and rockabilly are evident in just about every song they put out. That's par for the course on this wonderful Christmas album.
Yes, "All I Want For Christmas Is You" is the first track on this disc and probably the one that everybody has heard before. It's my favorite on the album. But so much emphasis is placed on this one song that I'd like to give a little nod to the rest of this album.
"Christmas Time In Texas" is a swingin' little Christmas number that is sure to put anyone in a good mood. Songs like "White Christmas" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" are traditionally done, but with the signature Valiant sound that only Vince can conjure up. "I Wanna Be A Christmas Tree" is probably the weakest track of the bunch, but it's done in a humorous manner that even the toughest critic should be able to look beyond.
In all, this album is the perfect fit for any holiday music collection. It's great to play at parties and is sure to get folks moving their feet.
