Another CD for the Golden Throats Bin,
This review is from: The Regis Philbin Christmas Album (Audio CD)
Many years ago, Rhino records had the Golden Throats: The Great Celebrity Sing Off collection of actors and entertainers who try to sing (such major examples include william Shatner The Transformed Man, Leonard Nimoy Mr. Spock's Music from Outer Space, and Sebastian Cabot Sebastian Cabot, Actor/Bob Dylan, Poet) ...well this album should join the heap
I love Regis the talk show host. I love Pasword and Millionare games shows. However when it comes to sing these standard Christmas Carols, MR " I Am Only One Man" should stay as a talk show host. He may do a night club act, but this does not translate to this CD
These twelve Christmas carol seems a waste of CD space (Sorry Rege!) .He does get a little help from his family and friends, but it dont really help much. He has his wife Joy in an offkeyed 'Baby its Cold Outside'. He has Donald "You're Fired " Trump on Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" (you know Rudy was not fired!) and Steve Tyrell on ;Marshallow World'. So where is Kathie or Kelly when you need them Big Daddy?
Regis does like most actor who try to be singers. He speaks the words like a poem. It is nice that he speaks in his Regis style. His voice as a non singer isnt bad, just its not singing
Well Uncle Rege (he seems to be everyone UNCLE), lets not do a CD of your favorite Irish tunes, OKAY?

Mr. Pomerantz, you must have never heard Kelly try to sing. She admits that she can not carry a tune. Kathie Lee does have a beautiful voice. Regis and Joy both have wonderful voices. Hopefully, your review will not affect someone's purchasing and enjoying this cd.
