5.0 out of 5 stars Hockenberry rocks! December 1, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
You buy the album for the title track Christmas by the Bay, by the hit songwriting duo Sterling and Gasser, sung by Tim Hockenberry, but you cherish the entire CD for the rest of the collection en toto. Bravo, well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars My heart's back in San Francisco! December 12, 2003
By E. Cerf
Format:Audio CD
When I popped "Christmas by the Bay" into my CD player, suddenly I was lifted from my home in Maine back to San Francisco! I could imagine sipping a warm Irish coffee in the Redwood Room, being serenaded by wonderful singers and accompaniment. Thank you Clark Sterling! The title song brings tears to your eyes.
To have such talented Bay Area performers all in one CD is a real treat for someone living so far away. This CD will make your holidays just that much merrier!

3.0 out of 5 stars A New Christmas Classic December 26, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This ranking is solely for the title track Christmas by the Bay. I heard this on both 98.1 KISQ and 103.7 KKSF and it has the makings of Christmas classic. I look forward to adding this CD to my Donnie Hathaway, Vince Guarldi and Nat King Cole Christmas collections
