5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Christmas, November 26, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Time-Life Treasury of Christmas: Holiday Memories (Audio CD)
Christmas music lovers, you've found your collection. Much like the excellence of 'Ultimate Christmas,' Time-Life's 'Treasury of Christmas' should be a vintage favorite. Popular songs by Perry Como, Gene Autry, Andy Williams, and Judy Garland provide a goldmine of heartwarming holiday favorites. Some may find the collection to contain too much Bing, but I personally think that's an asset--rather than a liability. "Do You Hear What I Hear?" is a magnificent gem. Bing's voice soars to the star with spare but excellent accompaniment that provides an excellent alternative to the perennial "White Christmas". The highlights are essential: Dean Martin's "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!," Burl Ives "Holly Jolly Christmas," Jose Feliciano's "Feliz Navidad," The Beach Boys "Little Saint Nick," and the original favorite version of "Jingle Bell Rock" all assemble a thoughtful, vintage stocking stuffer for any C.D. collection. The lesser songs are all as mellow and accomodating as a roaring fire and a cup of egg nog or hot buttered rum. If you go no further, and want just one Christmas album, this is the one to get. Unless you like a mixture of the progressive and the traditional, then 'Ultimate Christmas' is the C.D. to buy. Then, again, most people would do well to have both. I have no regrets.
