Christmas Extraordinaire by Mannheim Steamroller
Released: Aug 2001
Label: American Gramaphone
Producer Chip Davis first launched Mannheim Steamroller with Fresh Aire in 1975; while always successful, the instrumental project really took off with 1984's multiplatinum Mannheim Steamroller Christmas. Continuing the holiday tradition, Christmas Extraordinaire collects a healthy swath of well-known Christmas music. While the New Age stylings of "Away in a Manger" and "Do You Hear What I Hear?" are highlights, it's the '80s-riffic "Faeries" from Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker that's the major draw here. A practically psychedelic "O Tannenbaum" (with Johnny Mathis) is another winner.
