Usually, I am not into the idea of Christmas albums... especially rock Christmas albums.
However, Blackheart Records, Joan Jett's record label, has proved me wrong. They are releasing an album that sounds so cool you'll want to embrace the holiday spirit. A Blackheart Christmas
is available on vinyl for the very first time. The album features holiday standards from Girl in a Coma
, The Dollyrots
and original tunes from Seattle punks The Cute Lepers
and veteran Blackheart band The Vacancies. A modern take on Silent Night closes out the 11-track offering recorded with Joan Jett on vocals and guitar.
Jett's Blackheart Records
, a company she started over 25 years ago, made her the first woman to start her own rock label.
