ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What They Are Saying About The Album --

Los Angeles Times, November 29, 2013: "There's a fun idea here of transplanting the holiday scenarios from the North Pole and snow-covered hills to the beach."

Santa Fe New Mexican, December 14, 2013: "Like ugly holiday sweaters, pop remakes of Christmas music induce warm and cozy feelings in some and shudders of nausea in others. Sea Sun Greetings is a lighthearted and pun-heavy collection of 16 original surf-rock anthems and ballads released by experienced seasonal songsmith Lawrence Savell. Since 1998, Savell has produced seven holiday-pop albums — all of them, until now, somehow also incorporating a legal perspective (Savell is a lawyer). 'For 2013,' he explains, 'I’ve climbed out from the dusty shadows of the Law Library and headed to the beach.' It would take a true Ebenezer Scrooge to lambaste this almost excessively good-hearted album, packed as it is with positive lyrics like: 'When you put on a Santa suit, you’re in for a surprise, in how you feel, and how you see the wonder in children’s eyes/You’ll understand what it’s all for, and your holiday spirit will be restored.' Though the combination of surf guitar and sleigh bells is about as harmonious as eggnog and turkey gravy, these songs manage to counter their inherent saccharinity with sincerity. The watercolor cover art created by Savell’s 82-year-old mother also increases the album’s endearment factor. Sea Sun Greetings makes a good stocking stuffer for people who love jangly Christmas tunes, and it could also serve as an alternative to coal for those who have trouble getting into the holiday spirit."

Knoxville News Sentinel/Scripps Howard News Service, December 6, 2013: "You have to give attorney-by-day Lawrence Savell credit. He doesn't give up. Years after entering the holiday novelty market with 'Yule Hear From Our Lawyers' (under the name LawTunes) and following with regular releases, he's returned with a surf rock collection with such titles as 'Yuletide Riptide,' 'Snow Justice' and 'Ridin' on a Red Eye With Santa on Christmas Eve.' Sometimes it's funny. Sometimes it's not. But, there's charm in the guy's dedication and his 82-year-old mom's watercolors on the cover."

Philadelphia Daily News, December 4, 2013: Noted in "Xmas CD Gift Guide"
