In the early 1970s, my parents bought a compact stereo. This was the first
stereo phonograph our family ever owned. We didn't have any albums to play
(only a few old monaural 78s and 45s). So, I went down to the local
Woolsworths store (long since gone) and looked for an album to buy. I found
there "Christmas Time" by Roger Williams. It has been a favorite of mine
ever since. Unfortunately, I have never been able to find a compact disk
version of this album (I bought the cassette tape version several years
ago). There is a much later CD album entitled "Golden Christmas" by Roger
Williams, but it is not nearly as good (it lacks the orchestral
accompaniment present in the older album).

While my favorite christmas album is still the LIVING STRINGS - THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS album from 1963, this album, ROGER WILLIAMS - CHRISTMAS TIME, is easily at #2 and tied with 2 other christmas albums, one being JOHN KLEIN - A CHRISTMAS SOUND SPECTACULAR (1959) and the other, FRED WARING AND THE PENNSYLVANIANS - THE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS (1961).

ROGER WILLIAMS may, in fact, have the closest sounding style to that LIVING STRINGS album above. This ROGER WILLIAMS - CHRISTMAS TIME album is a mix of songs by themselves and songs in medley form. This album mixes religious christmas songs with the secular (non-religious) christmas songs. And this ROGER WILLIAMS album does everything perhaps perfectly, from the arrangements to the sound (or production) to the song selection to ROGER'S piano playing to a most beautiful orchestra with some of the lushest strings and orchestral sounds you'll ever hear. RONNIE'S piano playing blends in with the orchestra like I've never heard before, not even by RONNIE ALDRICH or FERRANTE AND TEICHER. Just listen to songs such as SILENT NIGHT (my favorite version ever), O LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM (my favorite version along with a version by JACK JONES from 1969), WHITE CHRISTMAS (one of my favorite versions ever, a real nice musical solo part of some sort that is beautiful and different, very unique and original), WINTER WONDERLAND (also one of my favorite versions ever) and most to every other song to find that perfect balance between orchestra and piano. And every single song is strong, very strong on this release. Most to even all the songs are among my favorite version if not even my favorite version of each of them (as noted with some above).
