Can't wait to hear --one day (soon I hope) -- duet of Elvis & LisaMarie on "It won't be the same Xmas..!"

is there anybody who's gonna buy this ? It's a rip-off version of the import cd O come all ye faithfull- christmas package. Only in a different order. stupid cover also. A child at 3 years can do this better.

Nope, not buying this one. Today anyone can create their own CDs on the computer, send it to a "pressing factory" and at a low cost make so called "factory pressed" or "silver disc" CDs and sell them on eBay. Almost all the time they just consist of already released material, not adding anything to a serious collector. This also goes for all those so called import releases of old RCA LPs on CD like "Welcome To My World" and "Elvis' Christmas Album" released a few weeks ago. So just to quote Lex, Ciscoking and marco31768: "robbery", "C-R-A-P" and "crap" respectively! I agree with you guys.

How can you use that kind of words, when you are talking about the KING! Show some respekt please!!
andersen wrote on November 14, 2012
This has nothing to do with Elvis. Nor the music. I love Elvis and most of all his music. My reflections were on the cheap releases like this one. Just using old stuff, cheaply put together and sold for a quick buck. Now that's what I call disrespectful towards the King!
Ciscoking wrote on November 15, 2012
I understand andersens point..and it`s okay for me..nothing against Elvis..he just damnes this el cheapo quick buck rip off..
Master Fatman wrote on November 15, 2012

"un-released" Country version ... and Oh holy night & Listen to the bells + Fools rush in take 24...Has someone actually listened to this release ?? I'd like to know if it is for real or just a hoax for fans ?? Feel that the Colonel, seldomly made mistakes but this time, he sure did ! He let himself be convinced by (amateur manager) Steve Binder and Elvis himself to do a regular TV show rather than a Christmas TV Special that would have been successfully sold year after year until 3012 !!! Sony should also make an agreement with LisaMarie and add each year (only) one christmas song as a duet with her father, to each new annual release of the 2 Xmas albums EP made. That way they'll make more money than you can imagine...Now, thàts good marketing boys, I tell you !

Are there any DUETS with those flash-in-the-pan singers on this album ? Then I won't buy it !

Pretty funny release! Lady Madonna is a real stretch as a Christmas song, but I can see how they got there. But Fools Rush In?? The market is flooded with this kind of crap. I'm not sure I care. I mean, if someone has money to spend on this, and whoever made this is poor and needs the money, I say fine. (Ignoring copyright laws, etc etc.)
