Review by MusicBox
3½ stars out of 4

Before Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Cherry Poppin' Daddies and all the other swing bands brought back the outdated genre of swing, there was the Squirrel Nut Zippers. The Squirrel Nut Zippers hail from Chapel Hill, North Carolina and their heritage is evident throughout their first holiday album, Christmas Caravan. The Zippers take swing music and spike it with a touch of bluegrass and just a little of their southern charm. That southern charm couldn't show through anymore than on their song "Carolina Christmas." The other holiday songs are remarkably amusing to listen to. "Indian Giver" is a spoof on the frequently used term about friends who take back Christmas presents after only a few hours. And one song is even taken from the popular Christmas story, Gift of the Magi. If a new holiday album is on your list this Christmas, pick up Squirrel Nut Zippers' Christmas Caravan for a refreshing new look at the familiar holiday.
