:: Chris Isaak Christmas

Chris Isaak has had a firm love of Australia, having toured several times. Most recently, he came to Melbourne to promote his Live in Australia CD and was a special guest at the Melbourne Cup racing carnival. His long-held aim to do a Christmas album has come to fruition and the Soundstage series releases this experience on DVD.

There are some original Christmas songs such as “Hey Santa” and “Washington Square”, the latter being inspired by his visit to Iraq and Afghanistan to entertain the US troops. He realised what it meant for the soldiers not to be with their families at Christmas.

Chris is joined on this DVD by special guests including Stevie Nicks, Brian McKnight and Michael Buble. Some of the other songs featured are “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”, “Blue Christmas” and “I'll Be Home For Christmas”. Everyone has fun during the performance and it sets the right mood for the festive season.

The quality of the DVD is excellent with a very well-lit stage and sharpness in contrast. The sound is well balanced and it makes for fine viewing.
