All the other Connie Xmas albums are a track or two short. If you are only going to get one of the Connie Xmas albums then get your hands on this one as it has 15 tracks. All other releases I have seen have got 10,12 or 13 tracks and so you lose out on a few decent pieces of music.

Although some people might argue that not every song here is truly a Christmas song, every song here is entitled to appear on such an album. And any idea that a song has to mention Christmas in the lyrics in order to be classed as a Christmas song is clearly nonsense as that would rule out Silent night, the most popular Christmas song of all, and a whole hot of other Christmas perennials. I agree that some Christmas albums stretch the boundaries a bit too far, but this isn't one of them.

So to the actual music, which Connie recorded at at a time when her popularity was extremely high. Here, Connie was in top form as usual. Most of the songs are Christmas standards including Winter wonderland, The Christmas song, White Christmas, I'll be home for Christmas, Have yourself a merry little Christmas, Twelve days of Christmas, Ave Maria, Silent night, O little town of Bethlehem, The first Noel and Adeste fidelis (O come all ye faithful). Yes, Ave Maria is a Christmas standard, whether it was intended to be or not. The album closes with The Lord's prayer, which is fair enough. Connie is certainly not the only singer to include this on a Christmas album; among others, Barbra Streisand did so on her first Christmas album. With so many familiar songs, this album was no doubt popular with record buyers when first released and deserves to remain so.

That leaves three other songs, these being Baby's first Christmas (a track that you may have come across on Christmas compilations by various artists), Blue winter (which sounds as though it was inspired by the more famous Blue Christmas) and I'm gonna be warm this winter (perhaps my favorite here, being the one song that I was unfamiliar with at the time of purchase).

This is an excellent Christmas album of its type and is a most welcome addition to my ever-growing collection of Christmas music.

A combination of two earlier Christmas albums into one. These are the originals made early in her career. Good music & great memories!!

Remember listening to her back in the fifties and have remained a fan. Some of her music is difficult to find but I found it at Amazon and am thrilled.

Fast service, as always! This CD was pre-owned, but I have bought many items, both pre-owned and new through Amazon, and I am always 100% satisfied. I will be back to Amazon.com very soon for Christmas shopping.
