Just visiting your Disco Noel page. I bought a $250 CDR deck for my stereo system just to copy some of my obscure LPs. Disco Noel was my first transfer from LP to CD. My second LP to CD transfer was Wing and a Prayer Fife and Drum
Corps' Babyface.

I like Christmas music with a twist, suitable for a very twisted mind. Try these:

Chung King Christmas -- traditional Christmas songs, Chinese instrumentation

Xmas!, The Beatmas -- traditional Christmas songs using instrumentation, introductiory cordings, and vocal harmonies from early Beatles songs, e.g., Jingle Bell Rock as Please Please Me, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer as Taxman.

What if Mozart Wrote "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause", Hampton String Quartet

Alligator Stomp, Vol. 4, Cajun Christmas -- traditional Christmas songs in Zydeco style (11-15-2001)

"Disco Noel" wasn't the only Christmas-As-Disco album to be released.

The Salsoul Orchestra (they were the ones backing up such Salsoul Records artists as Loletta Hollyway, et. al.) put out a Christmas disco album around 1976 or so called "Salsoul Christmas" (Yes, I have that album, but no, I'm not going to get rid of it!).

One cut from the "Salsoul Christmas" album can still be heard on the radio every year: their version of "Auld Lyne Syne" is still played on many radio stations at 12 Midnight on New Year's Eve.

I suspect the Pickwick "Disco Noel" is vastl;y inferior to "Salsoul Christmas". (10-01-2001)

Silver Bells is fantastic... I'am stupid and the lone beatnik is gay. What a fantastic world... (08-29-2001)

Anthony Young (mopar@quik.com) says:
Listening to Silver Bells, I didn't know where to laugh or cry. The seventies were weird, and this album was just part of the weirdness. This was like listening to fingernails down a blackboard! I guess they recorded anything in those days. Bad taste knows no bounds. But thanks for saving this piece of disco nostalgia! (08-06-2001)

This might sound a little corny, but I really like Christmas albums. I got a boatload of stuff in the holiday spirit. Those Firestone records with different stars singing Christmas tunes are my favorite. In fact I think I'll put one on now! (07-07-2001)

Hedda says:
I can just see some hopelessly uncool Mom and Dad putting this on the turntable at a pathetically dull christmas party, while their long-suffering son shuts himself in his room in shame. I have to go now. (06-27-2001)

The Lone Beatnik (cujoe76@yahoo.com) says:
btw, doesn't the woman on the cover look like Tammy Faye Bakker (of "The Ballad of Jim and Tammy" and PRAISE THE LORD fame)? (06-14-2001)

The Lone Beatnik (cujoe76@yahoo.com) says:
Ok, I can see hearing this music at christmastime whilest walking through the hustle and bustle (and greed) of the mall corridors. The songs, while not that bad, aren't anything I'd like to own. Note the 10 cent price tag that someone put in the corner. It's worth every penny of 10 cents just to sit and laugh at while stoned around christmastime and munchin' on christmas cookies. Especially the parts where the girls keep chanting "Jingle bells" like they're having an orgasm.

Oh, btw, to the person who mentioned a christmas gangsta rap album (i believe that person is Green Eyed Scorpio), there does exist a gangsta rap christmas album: CHRISTMAS ON DEATH ROW was released by Death Row records. While I do not own this record (and I have seriously considered buying it just because it is a stupid stupid funny idea), it contains renditions (and originals.. and some changed around renditions) of all your favorite christmas classics.. homeboy style! I'll pick it up sometime! (06-14-2001)

For that matter, Stars On... The Beatles one... I loved that cheesy thing. I could only find the Rolling stones version years later on cassette in a payless drug store. Any Ideas???? (06-13-2000)

corey (csousa@uswest.net) says:
Another Pickwick favorite... Does anyone have any Idea how to get a copy of "Songs from How the Grinch Stole Christmas"???? Pickwick records Marty Gold Children's Chorus, Woodbury NJ 1973 Pickwick ACL-9003, Camden Records. It is not the same as the Boris Karloff LP. My mom loves this damn LP. I grew up getting sick of it every year. But, they lost the LP and only have a tape of half of it. I would really like to get her a copy of this for Xmas. For that matter, what happened to Pickwick Records??? I could buy the rights/master tapes to something this cheesy for her. Any help would be a great help, I've been looking for years. csousa@uswest.net (06-13-2000)

I had an album similar to this one back in the early eighties and I have not been able to find it anywhere any suggestions where to look? Disco Christmas rocks and is a reminder of the good old days. very comforting. (06-08-2000)

Sammy Reed says:
A correction on a previous post: The "group" who did the infamous 1990 "Christmas Rap" tape was Crew X (not X Crew). I've got that one, and my favorite line is "Five - Count 'em, 12345 - golden rings!" Also: In 1983, dad bought a christmas tape called "Winter Wonderland", and we were shocked when we heard the words, "When you put your body in motion, the music is a magic love potion, we're dancin' in a winter wonderland of love." It was not the same song AT ALL. Wierdly enough, although the tape had a few "disco christmas" songs, it also had very serious renditions of "We Three Kings" and "Ave Maria"! That was a very strange compilation, and unfortunately we no longer have that one. (05-08-2000)

I saw this in a charity shop at lunchtime today! This is suposed to have an insert with it "how to dannce the disco noel" or some such idiocy but the insert was missing from this copy so I left it in the shop....... (03-22-2000)
