JIM'S GOING TO HAVE A BLUE CHRISTMAS...



Say what you like, but Elvis's version of this song is one that makes you want to tap your feet - or even dance to it.  Jim sings the song the way it's meant to be sung - slowly and sincerely.  Give it a listen and see if you don't agree.

Don't forget Shakin' Stevens 1982 version and last year modern group The Lumineers also had a nice version.

I think we can safely forget Shakey's version, CJ, as it wasn't much more than an imitation of Elvis's. Never heard of the Lumineers, but Jim's version will do for me. Smoooooooth.

Yes, i prefer Jim Reeves' version to Elvis' cut. But when it comes to Christmas music, i am still bound by my Mother's tastes from decades back.
Give me Andy Williams for my holiday soundtrack.

I've got the Andy Williams Christmas Album as well. Did you know he was Jim Reeve's favourite male singer?

Nope, that's news to me. But it fits, and rather nicely.

Just like Ella fits Gerald, eh? (Duh?)
