Michael McDonald's husky singing voice has so far earned him 5 Grammys with his unique timbre making this blu-ray Christmas concert 'a must buy'! Note however, this is no 'Frosty the Snowman' or'Jingle bells' concert. The tracks are carefully selected to keep you mood without being too heavy. Michael opens (and closes) the show with the Doobie Brothers, with over a dozen solo Christmas renditions in between - a sterling performance!
Many of the songs featured on this blu-ray are from Michael's 2009 holiday album `This Christmas' - listen to the samples first if you are unfamiliar with Michael McDonald's husky singing voice.

Now getting to "This christmas". It appears this is the full complete show recorded and issued to home DVD format. The audio has great seperation and a DTS Loseless clarity that makes U feel Michael is only singing to you in your living room. The Hidef transfer is 1080i not quite perfet but pretty dam awsome. I do not know why "Hallelujh" was not edited into the show in one sequence, but that cut is worth the price alone. There is a nice mix of holiday classics, Origonal (M.McD.) holiday tunes and a few of his solo and Doobie Bros. cuts mixed in. Which makes for a well worth mix of Michael McDonald and his talented band. If you do not own 1.Gathering of friends Trib. to Michael McDonald 2000 2.Michael McDonald Soundstage or 3. Michael McDonald A Tribute to Motown (Non Hidef only). then atleast grab this concert and get a feel for Michael McDonald LIVE". Not quite like seeing him in person, but a very good start.Read more ›
Michael McDonald is backed by a fine band as he does something of a greatest hits review, with a Christmas concert nestled in between.
This show is just a warm-hearted and easy-going good time. An excellent Christmas gift.
But I have to say that the rendetion of Have yourself a Merry Christmas was worth 20 dollars.
