Rockin' Christmas Party, Vol. 1's lineup is like a bubblegum fanatic's dream. Ron Dante of the Archies, Tommy Roe and Lou Christie are bubblegum icons and they are all here singing Christmas songs both traditional and new.
This is a pretty uneven collection, which is not surprising given the fact that the title track by Reggie Perkins is one of the coolest things here and it's from a juvenile delinquency B-movie of the same name.

Rockabilly may have slipped under the radar of many mainstream music fans, and its impact on the charts was occasional, to say the least. But there’s no doubt the music those Fifties pioneers made remains more than recognisable today. The words didn’t always make sense, but the music was the message, and it was aimed straight at the feet. So get your cat clothes on, brush up your leather jacket and rock!
