Jingle Bell Rock is actually the second disc in a two-disc set called Christmas Party Pack that has been released separately from the original collection. Where that collection suffered from trying to mix up too many different styles of music that clashed, this collection simply because the music is lackluster. None of these (outside of Bobby Helms' "Jingle Bell Rock") are really that good, and in fact this is mostly a dull and lifeless collection of holiday "favorites." Do yourself a favor and avoid this album; even the artists here that are usually reliable turn in pretty boring versions of their songs.
