Editorial Reviews

Un respiro, Mertens' new solo album offers 10 new compositions, often very rythmical tracks composed for two pianos and two voices all performed by the composer himself. It shows Mertens' passion for the voice, not using it as an instrument but presenting the voice as a guide for the piano, always looking for pure expression only. Un respiro is Mertens' 6th solo studio album as a solo performer pianist/singer.

Not everyone enjoys Christmas carols (unfortunately), but most people do enjoy listening to Christmas music. In this holiday album, Billboard had collected one of the best Christmas music albums on the market. All of the songs are collected from movies, television shows, a Broadway musical, and one song from a children's album ("The Chipmunk Song"). This is an album that contains at least one song for everyone in the family and makes great music to put Christmas decorations up to. It's also sure to bring back memories of sitting around the telly watching Christmas specials. The songs on the album are:
"Christmas Time is Here" (from Charlie Brown)
"Welcome Christmas" (from The Grinch tv special)
"We Need a Little Christmas" (from the musical MAME)
"The Chipmunk Song"
"Riu Chiu" (from the tv show THE MONKEES)
"A Holly Jolly Christmas" (from RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER)
"Comin' Up Christmas Time" (from tv show CASPER)
"White Christmas" (by Bing from HOLIDAY INN)
"Frosty the Snowman" (from the tv special by the same name)
"Have Yourself a Very Merry Little Christmas" (from MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS)
It's a great album for the whole family. Merry Christmas to you.

This is one of a series of "budget" releases covering various aspects of Christmas released over the years by Rhino/Wea in conjunction with Billboard, all with 10-tracks each and liner notes in the form of track-by-track comments. Sound quality is generally good to excellent. All releases have "Billboard" as part of the title.

Some others are: Christmas 1955 - Present; Top Christmas Hymns; R&B Christmas Hits; Rock & Roll Christmas; Greatest Christmas Hits (1935-1954); and Greatest Country Christmas Hits. Some of the foregoing are also offered in 4-pack and 5-pack editions. In essence, these are the one you have to have if you want to recapture the delightful seasonal sounds of your childhood (assuming you're old enough to recall the periods covered).

This one repeats one from the 1955-Present release (The Chipmunk Song by The Chipmunks with The Music Of David Seville, first a # 1 Billboard Pop Hot 100/# 5 R&B in 1958 and a repeat hit for several years thereafter). It also gives you White Christmas by Bing Crosby as does the 1935-1954 edition, although that one is the original 1942 release with John Scott Trotter & His Orchestra and The Ken Darby Singers (# 1 and a repeat hit for the next four years, reaching the top again in 1945 and 1946). Due to wear and tear on the master tapes, Decca had Bing re-record it in 1947 with the same ensemble and that version would chart for the next 20 straight years. The one heard here is from a 1946 recording for a radio program.

Baby boomers, their children & their children's children should all enjoy hearing this fun collection of songs gathered from holiday specials, cartoons, films, a Broadway show & a tv show or two. Especially fun to have on in the background while putting up your Christmas tree and also when little ones are opening their presents. I myself put it on while doing my holiday baking & sing right along. Guaranteed to not only bring back warm, wonderful memories but to bring Christmas Cheer to one & all! Very highly recommended.

I hear that Santa keeps this one in his sleigh CD player. I have just about every Christmas compilation and this one stays in my 6-disc changer all through the Holidays. With the incredible selection of songs on Billboard Family Christmas Classics and Barbra Streisand's rendition of "Jingle Bells", you've got the makings of a perfect Christmas party.

Billboard Classics has created one of the most glorious collections of holiday songs ever put together on a CD. Some of the most beloved holiday favorites that we remember from holiday specials, movies, and radio, are all here. It's a sparkling celebration of the spirit of Christmas that would put a smile on the face of anyone... even Mr. Grinch.
The compilation begins with the wistfully melancholy Peanuts gang singing "Christmas Time Is Here" from everyone's favorite holiday special. Another Christmas special favorite: the Whos around their tree, singing that delightfully nonsencial "Fah-who-for-aze, dah-who-dor-aze, welcome, Christmas, come this way" from "Dr. Seuss' 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas.'"
We also have a treat from Broadway: Angela lansbury and cast from the 1966 smash "Mame", with a spirited, uptempo "We Need A Little Christmas." And who could forget the Chipmunks' "Christmas, Christmas ti-ime is near..." And for nostalgic adults, there is a great surprise: the Monkees, singing a Spanish carol, "Riu Chiu." Burl Ives performs "Have A Holly Jolly Christmas" from the holiday special "Rudoph the Red-Nosed Reindeer", and the whole cartoon gang from Hanna-Barbera is featured: "Comin' Up Christmas Time."
And for the wistful grandparents, there is a special treat: Bing Crosby crooning his classic signature song, "White Christmas." Jimmy Durante sings in his lovable husky tones, "Frosty the Snowman" from another great holiday special. To round off the collection, we have the wonderful Judy Garland, singing the winsome, charming classic "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas."
Who could ask for anything more? This CD is a perfect holiday addition, and will be played in your home for the holidays for many years to come.
