Fancy Dog's Rockin Christmas is a collection of honky-tonk and rockabilly renditions of Christmas songs performed by guitarist Dan Neale. The album itself is actually pretty good, filled with some excellent southern-fried guitar playing and a nice selection of songs. Especially good are the swinging "Sleigh Ride" and the laid-back "Christmas Time Is Here," both which show the different sides of this style of playing. This may be a little too country for some listeners, but for the most part this stays in a rocking vein. Fans of rockabilly and honky-tonk may want to give this a listen, as there are some genuinely good songs on this collection.
