AllMusic Review by

EMI-Capitol Special Markets' Christmas Dance Party is a collection of ten Christmas favorites -- "Sleigh Ride," "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree, " "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, " "White Christmas, " "Winter Wonderland, " "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town, " "Jingle Bells, " "Frosty the Snowman" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" -- as performed by a studio band. As the title suggests, all of the arrangements have some sort of a dance beat -- although in this case "dance" in the old-fashioned sense of the word, not the newfangled electronic beats that are all the rave. It is sporadically entertaining, and it may work well as background music at a party, but overall it falls a little flat.
