a star trek xmas

Star Trek actor William Shatner (Captain Kirk) has a real Christmas album out: 'Shatner Claus-The Christmas Album'. On the CD/LP  only traditionals, except 'One For You, One For Me'. Shatner provides narration for all the classics. For the singing and some of the music he came up with a bunch  of unexpected guest musicians from all over the music scene. Like Henri Rollins, Judy Collins, Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull), Todd Rundgren, Rick Wakeman or Brad Paisley. Production work has been done by Jürgen Engler (yes, the guy from German band Die Krupps). Off course Iggy Pop joins the party with an unusual cover of 'Silent Night'.
