4.0 out of 5 stars I didn't grow up with this album ... December 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD
... but I wish I had.

Let's be frank: there was a lot of, well, bad Xmas albums recorded in the 60's. This is not one of them. All of the tracks are at least good, with several being truly outstanding (excepting the painfully cheezy closing track, "Christmas Island", which some music exec almost certainly must have insisted they record in hopes of cashing in on Bing's famous Hawaiian number).

As Amazon doesn't have the tracklist posted, here it is, along with my "out of 5 stars" ratings:

***** 01 - The Little Drummer Boy
**** 02 - Silent Night
*** 03 - White Christmas
*** 04 - I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
**** 05 - I'll Be Home for Christmas
*** 06 - Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer
***** 07 - Adeste Fideles
*** 08 - O Little Town of Bethlehem
*** 09 - Away in a Manger
**** 10 - Hark! the Herald Angels Sing
*** 11 - Joy to the World
*** 12 - Jingle Bells
**** 13 - Winter Wonderland
** 14 - Christmas Island

Overall: 3.5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas memories January 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD
My grandmother had an old record player and a few albums and this was one of them. It wasn't Christmas unless I lay on the floor listening to the Lennon Sisters sneaking down the stairs to have a peek. I checked other on-line stores, but I could not find this CD anywhere until now. There voices were always perfect, their hair was always in place, and their smiles were always just for me. Christmas with the Lennon Sisters is a wonderful CD, bringing back many wonderful, wonderful memories. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to travel back to a childhood of goodness and wonder and magic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Christmas Music From My Past December 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In the late 60's and throughout the 70's my parents had several Christmas albums that were played almost non-stop each December. There were a select few that we're packed every Christmas Eve and taken to my grandparents house for our big family Christmas in the country and Christmas With The Lennon Sisters was one of them. I finally purchased this classic and now my kids like it to.

1.0 out of 5 stars MUDDY, MONO SOUND... AND IT'S MISSING A TRACK! December 2, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
***This review specifically pertains to the MP3 songs (not the CD or cassette or vinyl LP) released here by Ludoxx Records, a subsidiary of Tower Records.***

This is the same set of 14 songs that was originally released on the Dot label in 1961, I believe--but that's where the similarities end. The song samples here sound muddy, muffled, like an old AM radio with a pillow in front of the speaker. The samples sound like they're in mono, not stereo as the original release--I don't hear the same separation that I do on my CD copy. Even worse, there's a track missing from the original release. Here's the original lineup from the vinyl LP and the CD that was released @ ten years ago.

01--Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer
02--The Little Drummer Boy
03--Christmas Island
04--Adeste Fideles
05--I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
06--Silent Night
07--White Christmas
08--Jingle Bells
09--Away In a Manger
10--Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
11--Winter Wonderland
12--O Little Town Of Bethlehem
13--Joy To The World
14--I'll Be Home For Christmas

Why has "I'll Be Home For Christmas" been deleted?

For those wanting a better copy of this album--for themselves, their parents, or even their grandparents--poke around in a few other places for something called "Christmas Favorites," on the Master Classics Label. Or order from the Lennon Sisters themselves. Just be wary of anything from Ludoxx. Amazon, you can offer a better product than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Saturday night again!!! January 7, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you grew up in the 1950's and 60's, most households were tuned into Lawrence Welk and we really sat up and took notice when The Lennon Sisters were brought on to sing. I remember my Grandma usually was doing the supper dishes about that time, but always ran into the living room and sat at the edge of the couch, dishtowel in hand, to catch Diane, Peggy, Kathy and little Janet sing their hearts out! I wonder how many times that scene was repeated! This wonderful Christmas album CD is worth the price and more, if just to hear little Janet singing "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" again. I purchased this years ago for more than Amazon now has it priced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps A Christmas Classic And Masterpiece January 17, 2009
By rodney
Format:Audio CD
Of the two great LENNON SISTERS christmas albums, this one, CHRISTMAS WITH THE LENNON SISTERS, gets the nod as the better one. This would be mostly due to the great arrangements and conducting of the backing orchestra music by MILT ROGERS. It is fantastic and very powerful and christmasy like the best backing orchestra christmas music I know of. I really like the string sound and the fantastic rhythms. I would say that the orchestra music is a little more powerful on this album than their other one and the music is especially more lively on this record. I'm going to have to now look to see what else MILT ROGERS may have recorded in terms of christmas music. And of course, the LENNON SISTERS sing perhaps flawlessly throughout. Just like the backing orchestra music, I find a little more power and especially a more lively style in their singing on this record over the NOEL one.

Every song is great, especially the secular (non-religious) ones such as RUDOPLH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER, I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, WHITE CHRISTMAS, WINTER WONDERLAND, I SAW MOMMY KISSING SANTA CLAUS, etc....

If there's any weakness here (and I'm still not sure), it would be some of the religious songs as I find the LENNON SISTERS may miss the power/tone of the song that other singers get. However, their singing is still very beautiful and professional and so I'm not sure if there's any weaknes on this album.

There is also a backing male/female chorus on here and they do as great a job as any backing chorus so this is another plus for this album.

The sound is very good and clear yet still in that old 1950's/1960's style which is best for this music (to my liking anyway).

If I was forced to choose only one Christmas CD to own, this would be it. They knew how to harmonize, and the melodies are so uplifting. Absolutely perfect!
