4.0 out of 5 stars Barry's Best of Christmas, October 28, 2012
This review is from: The Classic Christmas Album (Audio CD)
After 3 albums of Christmas music, this is a great compilation with a couple of surprises...and I do mean only a couple! The inclusion of Manilow's first holiday song he recorded in 1977 It's Just Another New Year's Eve is rare and a nice addition. The single versions of Jingle Bells and Because It's Christmas are here too. Christmas Is Just Around The Corner and Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer which were not originally on his Hallmark In The Swing Of Christmas are also included. The other selections and placements seem almost perfect. It would have been perfect if he included the rare Ave Maria from 1990's Christmas Album: A Gift Of Love and It Came Upon A Midnight Clear (the bonus download for Swing). It would have been unique by adding the duet versions of Because It's Christmas (with Rosie O'Donnell) and A Gift Of Love (with Olivia Newton-John).

For the price of it, it's worth it. I assume he may have a follow up in the near Christmas future with a few new tracks and other tracks left out here like There's No Place Like Home For The Holidays, I'll Be Home For Christmas, What Are You Doing New Year's Eve, The Christmas Song (original single version form 1990) and the duet with KT Oslin Baby It's Cold Ouside.
