What is December People you ask? Well - - - Something Classic, Something new, Something familiar - yet totally original. One part tribute band – One part radio sensation – One part traditional Holiday music – and one part just plain fun. This high powered quintet – made up of some of the finest musicians from some of the worlds biggest bands – provides 'Industrial Strength' Rock and Roll for the Holidays. December People plays familiar Holiday songs in the styles of the top bands of our time like Santana The Who, Led Zepplin, Sting, ZZ Top, Boston, U2, ELP, Queen and Peter Gabriel just to name a few. The group consists of five top players from well known bands.
Collectables Records' various-artists compilation The Ultimate Christmas Album has been released both on its own and as a tie-in with a series of radio stations. There are identical editions of the album associated with KLUV, K-Earth 101 FM, and WCBS FM-101.1 in addition to this version, WJMK 104.3 Chicago. The word "ultimate" has been overused and misused in record releases to the point that it doesn't mean very much to see it on the cover of an album. Whether or not one considers this album to justify its title will have a lot to do with individual musical taste. If the potential consumer is a listener to one of the radio stations listed above, which are oldies stations devoted to playing pop/rock music of the 1950s, '60s, and '70s, he or she may agree that the album is the ultimate in holiday music of that period. Collectables has taken the trouble to license tracks from all of the major record labels except BMG, along with some minor ones, and several big holiday hits are included
