Various Artists ~ A Prog Rockin’ Christmas

Prog Christmas

 

Anything that starts off with a YES song, can’t be bad, although Jon Davison doing “Run With The Fox”, which isn’t really a Christmas song, it does have Christmas mentioned a couple of times, but, that is the extent of Christmas on that song. The rest of the album is more tradional Christmas songs, but, with that great progressive rock oomph that just makes things that much better. There is also Steve Morse covering “Carol Of The Belles”, Annie Haslem covering “The Twelve Days Of Christmas”, Billy Sherwood & Patrick Moraz covering Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime”, Martin Turner covering ELP’s “I Believe In Father Christmas”, although ELP’s version is much better, Thijs Van Leer doing “A Christmas Song”, & a very grinchy version “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch” by Malcolm McDowell. There are 3 bonus tracks that are available, but, unfortunately I didn’t get to hear them. Tis The Season, listen to this one throughout & get yourself into a proggy Christmas.
