Elvis Christmas Duets


Will they never run out of ways to merchandise Elvis? I think not. What they've done this time is to take some of his most famous Christmas solos and make them into duets with female country singers like Wynona Judd, Leann Rimes, Martina McBride, and a bunch of others. Since Elvis' original Christmas album has been a favorite of mine for more than 50 years, I had to give this one a listen. It's okay. Besides adding the singers, the instrumentation has been updated and augmented, so the songs have a bit of a different sound. I liked them the old way, and I prefer the solo renditions, but if you've never heard an Elvis Christmas song before, you'd probably like these.

Since this is an album of duets, it's a little odd that the "bonus tracks" are solos, but that's what they are. The songs are ones Elvis fans have all heard before, but with slightly different instrumentation. Not bad at all. Sort of gets me in the holiday mood.

I like Elvis myself, but I can only listen to "Blue Christmas" so many times a year -- and that quota is usually met by the first week of December.

Sounds like Lisa Marie is exploiting her dad's name so she can pour more money into her cult. Don't buy it, I say.

I suspect Priscilla's behind this. Or maybe not. She may have sold off everything and not be in charge these days.
