Chet Atkins
Christmas with Chet Atkins
Delray 10027 - 180g limited re-issue
Originally released on RCA (2423).
Chet Atkins' renditions of these beloved Christmas standards invoke the spirit of the season. He celebrates life, and Christmas, in styles by turns jazzy, (Western) swinging, and classical. For many of the traditional Christmas songs, such as "O Come All Ye Faithful" and the medley, "The Coventry Carol/God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen," Atkins plays a nylon-stringed acoustic guitar in a classical vein. On the other hand, on Irving Berlin's "White Christmas" and "Jingle Bell Rock," Atkins performs using the country swing style for which he is so well known. In whatever style he plays, with the subtle accompaniment of the Anita Kerr singers Chet Atkins captures the essence of Christmas with every note. One of the most underrated Christmas albums ever! A timeless masterpiece pressed on 180 gram vinyl and restored art.

This timeless holiday album sounds just as fresh and vibrant today as when Chet recorded it! Says Allmusic, ''His version of ''Silver Bells'' is, quite simply, one of the best versions of the standard ever, and possibly one of Atkins' most arresting performances of all time. The album is overall, criminally underrated... Gorgeous.''
