A Very Intimate Christmas 320cbr (Big Papi) 80's Shock Stars Wound Nicks Jovi U2 Madonna
By Ken Cook
Hard to believe that 16 years have gone by since this compilation was first released (1987). It is the first in what is now a five-supply series and perhaps the best of them all. Many of these recording artists featured on this accomplishment, I am not particularly a fan of. But they sure tone gigantic doing Christmas music! My only genuine beef with this album is that there are no queer fish Christmas songs here. All of these songs are covers of well-known and mostly over-recorded Christmas classics. But by and considerable, they are very well done and in most cases, they are given a new and fresh twist.

The set kicks off with a frenetic construct of «Santa Claus Is Coming To Town» by the Stick Sisters with a Clarence Clemens like saxophone prepare in the mid-point, injecting some new human being into this whacked outstanding. This is followed by the Eurythmics eclectic construct of «Winter Wonderland» that sounds just as unconventional today as it did then. Then we have Whitney Houston, pre-Bobby Brown, doing a important construct of «Do You Listen To What I Listen To.» Whitney was hottest female caroller on the planet behindhand in 1987 and this recording reveals her at the top of her prepared, before her eat one's heart out and sad neglect downward.

Speaking of Clarence Clemens, we have Bruce Springsteen & The E Thoroughfare Gather up next doing a lively construct of «Merry Christmas Baby.» And the hits keep coming. The Pretenders (Chrissie Hynde) with an alarming construct of «Have Yourself A Vivacious Little Christmas» and then John Mellencamp (still known as John Cougar behindhand in those days) belting out a rocking construct of «I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.»

But the best of this album is still to come! Sting«s otherworldly «Gabriel»s Message» is just utter for the fair season.

The album«s only fail comes on the next railway with Madonna singing Eartha Kitt»s «Santa Baby» in her nauseating little-jail-bait vote (in fairness, I didn«t like the queer fish much either). But that is followed by Bob Seger and the Gleaming Bullet Gather doing a very decorous construct of «Little Drummer Boy.» The next two tracks I don»t fancy for very much, Bryan Adams doesn«t do anything new and sexy with «Run Rudolph Run» and Bon Jovi sounds whacked with their lively construct of «Back Door Santa,» unqualified with the necessary guitar on one»s own and half-baked callouts to the audience to «put their hands together» and such. I construe that newer versions of this album substitutes this tale with «I Wish Accustomed Could Be Like Christmas» but I still have my queer fish 1987 copy.

Then we have what is quite probably the best tale on the whole album. Alison Moyet«s «The Coventry Carol» which I must tomfoolery twenty times every Christmas and never get unconventional of. I have no philosophy who Alison Moyet is other than this one tale but it»s a gigantic one and advantage the expense of this album alone. This solicitation inexorably comes to a detailed with Stevie Nick's sidereal construct of «Silent Night» — another standout railway on what is in my impression the best Christmas compilation album of the 1980s, at least of those that best new, well-known recording artists.
