I've been a fan of Rod from the beginning (before 'Maggie May').I have every album and CD and I love the rock albums and I am not a great fan of American Song Books CD's. When I knew he was doing a Christmas album I was mortified. I reluctantly bought it to keep my collection complete. What a great surprise it really is good. Rod does his own take on the Christmas songs. It is a Christmas album you can play more than once and it will certainly be coming out each year. Well done Rod.
