Six of the tracks are instrumentals and four tracks are songs with vocals. The album is a lot of fun. The arrangements and compositions of the classics were so fresh and original it makes them seem new again. It's definitely a talented band that can take the melody from South Pacific's Bali High and turn it into a lead in to Blue Christmas. The vocals hint at Elvis/Roy Orbison/Chris Isaac while the instrumentals are dripping in salt water with snow on the upper peaks of the island. More laid back than the Los Straightjackets or the Ventures Xmas efforts, this still has the BH’s signature relaxing/seductive vibe. Whether you are a avid surfer, beach boy at heart or just a lover of the old school tiki sound, try this... you will not be sorry.

DaBoss, you know i've had this album for years on cassette of all things. I found this for sale at a truck stop or something ,back when this came out. This was actually my first taste of the Blue Hawaiians. I do have to admit this is a little strange treat for Halloween though. Goes to show you never can tell what's going to show up here. Well thanks anyway now i won't have to bust out my tape deck this christmas.Sweet!
