    Genuine Houserockin' Christmas is a 16-track compilation of newly recorded holiday tunes sampling the roster of Alligator Records. These tunes capture several Chicago blues, modern soul, and zydeco artists including Koko Taylor, Lonnie Brooks, Lil' Ed & the Blues Imperials, Coco Montoya, C.J. Chenier & the Red Hot Louisiana Band, Saffire - The Uppity Blues Women, Little Charlie & the Nightcats, and Roomful of Blues. These are new Christmas tunes; you won't find "White Christmas," "The Christmas Song," or even "Merry Christmas Baby." This set is sure to become a staple for listeners seeking an alternative to traditional holiday fare. ~ Al Campbell
