Album Remarks & Appraisals:

2009 two CD holiday collection celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the very first Mannheim Steamroller Christmas album: the one that started the phenomenon! This double CD set features 25 tracks hand-picked by Chip Davis from the previous Christmas albums: Mannheim Steamroller Christmas (1984), A Fresh Aire Christmas (1988), Christmas In The Aire (1995), Christmas Extraordinaire (2001), Christmas Song (2007) and Christmasville (2008).

"If you watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade you saw Mannheim Steamroller! They're known for their crazy, synthesized versions of traditional Christmas tunes, but they also perform beautiful acoustic versions of holiday classics.

The Mannheim Steamroller Christmas 25th Anniversary Collection is a 2-CD set (which you can also buy on download) and it includes 25 songs. The First Noel is a nice example of their more serene style. But if you enjoy the sound of Disney's Electrical Parade, then you'll love their version of Winter Wonderland.

Since the cds are mostly instrumental, Mannheim Steamroller is the perfect background music for your holiday party." -ChristianMusicReview

The CHRISTMAS 25th ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION celebrates the chocolate-and-peanut-butter match that is Chip Davis' aural string assault and the yuletide season's turning a quarter-century old. The style is timeless; as it was in 1984, the lush arrangements surround the classic carols to create a unique, inobtrusive backdrop for any holiday party. This edition features a snazzy casing and extra tracks.
