Track by Track Review

Oh Holy Night dotdotdotdotdot
Christmas Surf (Instrumental)

Oh holy cow! This is stunning! Absolutely gorgeous, pristine, up tempo, emotional, and rhythmic. A truly fine performance, and a marvelous approach to classic holiday fair. Makes you drool. The closing chorus is amazingly haunting. The Aqua Velvets bring a rich sound to "O Holy Night" with Miles' vibrato lead guitar over a silky backtrack. Just a little moody, with a silky haunting ambiance and lush depth.

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas dotdotdotdotdot
Christmas Surf (Instrumental)

The shimmer of vibrato sets the mood for this aqueous rendition of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas." Retaining all the silky emotional content of the fifties hit versions, the Aqua Velvets replace the innocuous vocals with the pulsing shine of vibrato guitar. Velvety smooth.
