Help us celebrate Christmas in July with a new Nick record, Quality
Street - the kind of record that gives vulgar, tawdry commercialism a
good name.

Quality Street: A Seasonal Selection For All The Family is a twinkling blend
of traditional hymns, forgotten gems and Lowe originals. From the opening
rockabilly-charged “Children Go Where I Send Thee” and the comfy hush of
“Christmas Can't Be Far Away,” the record includes the beatnik bop of
“Hooves on the Roof” (written especially for the project by Ron Sexsmith),
Roger Miller's wistful classic “Old Toy Trains,” before wrapping up with
a ska-flavored take on “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day.”


Easing into his second decade as a dapper crooner, it's little wonder
that Nick Lowe has succumbed to the siren call that seduces every gentleman
vocalist: he's gone and made a Christmas album. Quality Street: A Seasonal
Selection for All the Family is cut from the same cloth as all of Lowe's recent
albums, cannily mixing up country, rockabilly, torch songs, and '50s pop, a cozy
blend that's well suited for evenings snuggled up by the fireplace.
Surprisingly, Quality Street isn't as sleepy as its predecessor, 2011's The Old
Magic, a charmingly low-key collection whose pulse rarely quickened. That's not
the case with Quality Street, which opens with a kicking rockabilly revision of
the traditional “Children Go Where I Send Thee,” a cut that rocks harder
than anything on The Old Magic. It's not the only thing here with a swinging
backbeat, either. “The North Pole Express” swings loose and low; “Rise Up
Shepherd” skips
