5.0 out of 5 stars Bonanza Ponderosa Party Time Box Set September 16, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I can't tell you what a great Deal this 4 Box set is. It includes the Christmas one as listed above. Plus other songs, including a beautiful rendition of Michael Landon (Little Joe) singing Shenendoah. As well as Lorne Greene(BEN) doing THe Place Where I worship.. On CD 4 is Dan Blocker (Hoss) doing a number of U.S. History type songs. He sings but mostley narrates a lot of it. His voice is so Gentle and soft, and as you listen to this whole collection you can see the Ponderosa right before you. All of a sudden your home looks like the Ponderosa. Pernell Roberts (ADAM) sings they call the Wind Maria. This is a must Have for anyone who wants to go back in Time. You cant help but blast it out so the whole neighborhood can hear. I even play it down at the Stable for my Horse she loves it and actually gets mad when I turn it off. She tries to turn it back on. You just have to have this, it will make you want to throw a party PONDEROSA style. The angels are singing tonite on the Ponderosa ^j^

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally...part of my childhood Christmas is BACK! November 26, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I really enjoy the CD...amazed to realize I still remember not only the lyrics but the DIALOGUE! If you've never heard this "album", it contains some traditional and several not-so-traditional songs. You're in for an evening of caroling on the Ponderosa with Ben and the boys and their guests (including bossy Ms. Abby Morgan who has her cap set for Ben!). Oh...and if you're buying it from Jingles, I got mine in about a week that included a holiday!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bonanza Original TV Cast: Christmas on the Ponderosa November 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I've been looking & looking, and thanks amazon, I found it. I am the youngest of eight in our family. Christmas on the Ponderosa is a classic that my family grew up with. I'm proud to keep the tradition alive.

This is a great Christmas album featuring the cast of Bonanza with traditional and what was then contemporary Christmas music and dialogue to make it feel like it is an episode of the show. This is a great bargain for those who just want the album, but if you are a true fan of this stuff, you are better off buying the boxed set on Bear Family which contains not only this album in its entirety, but also the original Ponderosa Party Time album in its entirety, 4 Lorne Greene albums in their entirety, rare versions of "Ringo" and "Sand" sung by Lorne in French, Pernell Roberts's only album in its entirety and Dan Blocker's album in its entirety with a great booklet of liner notes, a sessionography, and more plus a gift from "Hop Singh," a small envelope of pine needles for you to grow your own pine tree, but for those on a budget, all you can get the Razor & Tie best of Lorne Greene CD if you can find it, and this disc of the Christmas album, but I'd rather have fans buy the boxed set and be done with it as its worth the steep price it costs, although the Razor & Tie Lorne Greene disc does have the single "Waco" which isn't on the boxed set, but 45s of this single can often be found on eBay.

5.0 out of 5 stars An American Tradition continues November 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD
As a child, my mother had this recording as an Album. My sister and brother and I almost wore out that record. We loved it. WhenI first got it on CD I wore it out! I have had to replace three times! My family tradition is going on to my grandchild now. It is so nice to find something that is family fun and funny. I know all the word by heart but it is not just memorizing songs, it's memories from childhood. My favorites are "Christmas is a coming" and "Santa Clause got stuck in the Chimney". It is the simpler pleasures of a simpler time. Enjoy it with your family for years to come. Even when no one remembers Bonanza the TV show, they will remember Bonanza, Christmas on the Ponderosa. Happy Holidays.

5.0 out of 5 stars a christmas Classic November 23, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Every year at christmas time when decorating the tree my Mother would always have this playing it was her favorite way to listen to music of the season. It has been listened to so much that all versions that we have it on are very worn. it is a Great buy if you can find it. Hope you have great luck.:-)

5.0 out of 5 stars A holiday favorite January 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My parents had this 33 1/3 album and we played it every year while decorating the tree and on Christmas morning so when I found the CD here I was thrilled. Bought several: one for my car and to give to my brothers and my parents as well- the CD doesn't have the 45 years of wear the album has, so there is no noise. What a flash from the past and a great tradition for me. I only wish there was a video but I think this is from a radio show style recording, not an actual episode of the Bonanza show.
