Give Love (for Christmas)
'Give Love'. What a great idea! Very well produced. This CD sounds like it has major studio backing. It features traditional Christmas songs with jazzy, upbeat arrangements and original compositions that should become classics. He even has the class to include the first verse of 'White Christmas' - and I'd bet a lot of folks don't even know this verse exists. A nice treat is his version of that old Brook Benton song 'When Christmas Is Near'. I love his treatment of 'Rudolph'. My 14yo daughter said "Dad, this needs to be on the radio. I am soo tired of that old cowboy version." Joe has taken some production and arrangement hints from Paul O'Neill and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra and blended it with his West Virginia roots. Great stuff. GET THIS CD NOW!!..
