Continuing my trip through my Christmas CD collection, right up through January 6.

Today's title is another compilation, this one entitled A Rock 'N' Roll Christmas.

There were two of these titles issued in the 90's (the follow-up being uncharacteristically titled A Rock 'N' Roll Christmas 2), and as you might imagine it featured rock artists of the day performing renditions of Christmas songs, many of them appearing here on CD for the first (in some cases only) time.

What's Christmas without a little George Thorogood?

And can you go wrong with Bob Seger?

Who doesn't remember this one from The Waitresses?

Or this classic from The Kinks?


  1. This was pretty wild or me. I feel I've been 'sheltered'... never having heard any of these songs.
    I like the Kinks!

    1. I'm a little surprised that the Kinks and Waitresses songs were new to you-both used to be radio staples for years. I guess it's been so long since I listened to radio (more than 20 years) that I don't know what gets played on the "classic rock" stations around the holidays anymore.
