The Brian Setzer Orchestra - Dig That Crazy Christmas

Sure, we all know about how cool Brian Setzer is, don't we? About on par with Mr. Mike Ness, in my estimation and folks, and that's as high up as you can go on DaddyRich's list of cool. This is a swingin' good time of a Christmas disc and finally breathes some life into a holiday filled with what often seems funerary music. Also, this happens to be one of those rare platters that the Mrs. and I can agree on wheN it comes to the Winter Occasion in the house of DaddyRich. We can all bop along to the great tunes and love the big band treatment gIven all these songs but it seems sometimes that the mans brilliant guitar work gets overlooked - so don't let it slip you by just because it is so fluid in the mix. A virtuoso in my humble opinion. So, truly - dig that crazy Christmas and have some fun.
