In 1992 I found this great Christmas album from Capitol called "Let It Snow!" Every time the holiday rolls around this CD finds it way out of the closet and friends ask "Where did you get this?" Sadly this CD went out of print along with its companions "Merry Christams, Baby" and "Christmas Kisses".

"Christmas Classics" contains some of the best tracks from "Let It Snow!" and eliminates some of the more charming yet annonying tracks. You just can't beat Leana Horne's version of the title track with the swingin' conducting by Jack Parnell. The album swings and bops its way all through the season. Nostalgic and fun.

Looking for a holiday album to recall the memories of Christmases past? Then CHRISTMAS CLASSICS is a near perfect collection. These are songs that will take you back to your childhood. The most recent song is 1968's "The Christmas Waltz" by Nancy Wilson, and the earliest song is 1947's "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town" by Johnny Mercer. In addition, there are classics like Nat King Cole's "The Christmas Song," Ella Fitzgerald's stately "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear" and Lena Horne's festive "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" So throw another log on the fire, pour yourself a cup of egg nog, and enjoy...Merry Christmas! [Running Time - 42:06] HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

This 2004 remastering of the original recordings brings a pristine presence and freshness to these favorites. Bing's rendition of "Let it Snow," for instance, looses the crude, "sproingy" sounding reverb that has been applied to it by various sound engineers over the years. Instead, you hear Bing himself with a very natural sounding voice, as if he were standing in your living room, and not in a cave.

This CD is BY FAR the best collection I have found since I was a kid! I grew up listening to the classic, "Time, Life" collections and this compares to any of them! I bought it for "Man with the bag" and I was not disappointed in any of the songs. Two thumbs way up!

I've had this CD for at least 10 years, and it gets played at least once during the holidays, usually more than that. Every track on here is a winner, even the lesser known ones. If you want to "rock up" your holiday music collection, this CD is for you!!

Christmas Classics, a partial re-release of an earlier holiday album entitled Let It Snow, is truly one of the nicest Christmas albums I've come upon so far. There are a number of wonderfully talented artists on this album and every song is a delight; there's not a dud in the bunch. Sure, some tracks were left out from the original release; yet what we do get is nothing but the very best in classic holiday music. The quality of the sound is excellent and the artwork is very nice.

Nat "King" Cole's "The Christmas Song" begins the track set with one of the very best holiday numbers even performed; Nat truly owns this song and he never lets go of a single superfluous note. This number moves me, too; this music is all THAT good. Dean Martin's "Baby, It's Cold Outside" is extremely well done; and that backup chorus enchants me as well--not that Dean really needed backup but they do sound very good anyway. Bing Crosby's "Winter Wonderland" is yet another charmer; Bing could really croon and he still sounds perfect even after all these years!

"I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm" gets the royal treatment from Les Brown & His Band of Renown; ooh, how they do this one up right! The jazzy arrangement works wonders for this melody. Lou Rawls also does a sublime job on the classic "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas;" this number was first sung by Judy Garland in the MGM movie "Meet Me in Saint Louis;" and I would like to think that Judy surely would have approved of Lou's rendition of this song! In addition, Kay Starr's treatment of "(Everybody's Waitin' for) The Man with the Bag" just couldn't have been any better; Kay's voice is as clear as a bell and when you hear this it becomes no secret why she was one of the best songbirds of the entire twentieth century.

This cd is a must for any collector of rock Christmas music. The cd version is a better choice, 18 tunes in all while the cassette only has 12. Great holiday fun!

For anyone that enjoys rock, pop & r&b versions of Christmas tunes, this should be a welcome addition to your collection. There's something for everyone on here, and yes, the usual (but still timeless)fare such as Run Rudolph Run by Chuck Berry, Jingle Bell Rock by Bobby Helm & White Christmas by The Drifters, but you'll also find rarities like Johnny Horton's They Shined Up Rudolph's Nose(now be honest, how often does this one get airplay come holiday time?), Aretha's Winter Wonderland & the always funny Ray Stevens singing Santa Claus Is Watching You. The cd is a better bargain than the cassette, as it has 6 more songs. I've been listening to this one for over 10 years now & wish RHINO would come out with a 2nd volume. Very highly recommended.
