AllMusic Review by

The A-side is an original comparable to The Trashmen's 1964 "Dancing with Santa," abut this is 25 years later. These are great '60s garage rock/hot rod-inspired Christmas songs. The flip side is a retitled cover of The Pyramids' "Midnight Run," a boss surf instrumental. It is a must for any Christmas rock & roll fan. (Note: the A-side also appears on Christmas Party with Eddie G., CBS CD-46919)
