Looking for a particular Christmas artist or album? Click above on the
first letter of the artist's name, then scroll through the links.
tips may be helpful:
- If the artist's name begins with A, AN,
or THE, ignore those words
- Persons are listed by last name, not first
- Numbers are listed as if spelled out (e.g. Four Tops)
- Ignore punctuation such as parentheses or quotation marks
- Various artist compilations are listed on separate
by album title
Unlike my other website, Randy's Rodeo, Hip Christmas is rather,
um, exhaustive (obsessive, demented, ridiculously detailed, whatever...).
Consequently, I've included more information than
the usual links to individual artist reviews (present where applicable).
In addition, you'll also find album
titles, release dates, and links that pop up the cover art - a veritable
"Cool Christmas" database!
Within the index, you'll see many, many Christmas albums
- well over 1000 - but this is still a selected
discography, not an exhaustive catalog. For instance, I tend
to ignore budget reissues such as those on labels like
Laserlight or Pickwick. I also try to avoid unlicensed, public domain, and/or bootleg reissues on labels like Jasmine, JSP, Proper, and ASV/Living Era. Plus, I'm not terribly interested in folk music,
contemporary country, recent blues, and modern jazz - and
I don't care for new age music at all. Nowhere near all
of this music is good, but these are the artists and albums
that will be of interest to people passionate
about hip Christmas music. I believe you'll find this a
resource unlike any on the web, and I hope you will email
with any additions or corrections.
You may also find our Site Search (above)
useful - it scours Hip Christmas for any mention of your search terms. We
also have a Various Artists Christmas
albums index, Christmas
Songs & Singles index,
and any Amazon
or iTunes link
will allow you to browse directly from within their immense catalogs. If
you want to know more, we recommend the All
Music Guide. It is the premier music database on the web, and its content
is incorporated into many other websites.
