Quite a surprise. I am a fan of Smokie, but like other groups who founded their success on the skills of the Chinn and Chapman writing duo they never attained the same status or success when they went their own way. However, they were talented and tight musically with a good sound, and this album shows it. The mix is also much better than the average bunch of classics covered with minimal effort or input. There are classics of course; Mary's Boychild, Have Yourself a merry Little Christmas, Silent Night etc, but also later compositions A Spaceman Came Travelling, A Winters Tale and self penned It Won't Be Christmas, Light a Candle, Christmas Isn't Just For Christmas, all of which have been arranged and are performed as if they really cared. A real find for my Christmas album collection, which be warned for comparison, includes works from Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Annie Lennox and Jethro Tull. ---Clem Neville
