Product Description

A collection from this diamond is worth its weight in gold as Neil Diamond unleashes his trademark sound on 14 classic holiday songs. O Come, O Come, Emmanuel/We Three Kings; Silent Night; The Little Drummer Boy; Santa Claus Is Coming to Town; The Christmas Song; Happy Xmas (War Is Over); White Christmas; God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen; Jingle Bell Rock; Hark! The Herald Angels Sing; Silver Bells; You Make It Feel Like; Christmas and O Holy Night .

Neil Diamond has always fancied himself a man of many styles, which probably helps explain why he tries to flaunt each and every one of them on this diverse, sometimes dizzying Christmas disc. He plays it relatively straight on "Silent Night" and "The Christmas Song," but really lets loose on a version of "White Christmas" that recalls the doo-wop of his teen years in the 1950s. Diamond even expands his palette to include a choir-accompanied take on John Lennon's pacifist classic "Happy Christmas (War is Over)." It's the kind of intermingling that makes his fans go wild, but casual admirers should watch out for those stylistic U-turns. --David Sprague

And, yes, I've heard quite a few. I don't mind the fact that it's a Jewish man singing Christmas music. And really, why shouldn't a Jewish man sing about the birth of another Jew?

What I like best about this album is that on most of the songs, Neil doesn't jazz it up or anything like that. Now, it's true that he does give that treatment to a few of the songs, but most of them are left intact the way they ought to be. The only ones that experience any major change are "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" and "White Christmas". His opener, "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel/We Three Kings of Orient Are" is one of the best opening tracks I've ever heard for a Christmas album. It's a beautiful medley complimented with a boys choir.

I highly recommend this CD to any Christmas music enthusiast.

I am a Christian and I'm proud to have a jewish man sing songs about another Jewish man. I've seen Neil Diamond in concert and I must say he puts on a show like no other. I have loved him and his music for many years. I thank him for giving me so much pleasure.

Dating probably back to when Irving Berlin wrote "White Christmas," there's been a tradition of popular Jewish artists recording Christmas songs. Having seen his contemporary New Yorkers Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel, Barbra Streisand and Barry Manilow record Christmas songs at various stages in their careers, in 1992 Neil Diamond interrupted his decade-long descent into irrelevant schmaltz by producing this somewhat uneven but overall entertaining collection of holiday music. He wisely begins with "O Come, O Come Emmanuel," with an arrangement a bit reminiscent of "Kol Nidre" from "The Jazz Singer, but that's about the only concession to his Jewish tradition Neil makes on this album. He employs choirs on several of the most spiritual Christmas songs ("We Three Kings," "Silent Night," "Hark the Herald Angels Sing," "O Holy Night"), and for the most part he offers an enthusiastic if not exactly soulful interpretation. He does a really nice number on "Little Drummer Boy," making it sound unlike any other interpretation.

He hits a rough patch with several songs that already have definitive versions and would've been better left alone. Neil comes nowhere remotely close to the raw power of Springsteen's "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town," and it would've been a much better idea to just have done the traditional Sinatraesque rendition instead. Neil's "Christmas Song" isn't likely to make anybody forget Nat King Cole's classic interpretation. For reasons which boggle the imagination, he then launches into "Morning Has Broken," which isn't even a Christmas song and which was definitively done by Cat Stevens years ago, and then even more amazingly, he tackles John Lennon's "Happy Christmas (War Is Over).

I had this cd many years ago & I guess just in the process of moving I have simply lost it (or my husband hid it) I LOVE every song on this CD. I LOVE Neil diamond it is beautiful hearing his voice sing these songs...and I keep stereo on repeat(which is why hubby gets annoyed) I bought another as a gift when I purchased my replacement and I hope the recipient loves it as much as I do!!

Last year I heard a special song to me and attracted me when I heard this particular song sung by N. Diamond. Last year I try to locate in local music stores and could not find it. I saw it advertised @ Amazon and Voila! I listen to the whole album quite frequent.

Neil Diamond released this great Christmas Album in 1992. It was his first album of Christmas hits and every song on the album is great to listen to! He puts a new spin on some old Christmas favorites such as "White Christmas', he sings some old carols with great emotion and the background chorus and symphony compliments his great voice. The songs on this CD are:

1. O Come, O Come Emmanuel/ We Three Kings Of Orient Are
2. Silent Night
3. Little Drummer Boy
4. Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town
5. The Christmas Song
6. Morning Has Broken
7. Happy Christmas (War Is Over)
8. White Christmas
9. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
10. Jingle Bell Rock
11. Hark The Herald Angels Sing
12. Silver Bells
13. You Make It Feel Like Christmas
14. O Holy Night
All of these songs are wonderful but "Happy Christmas (War Is Over)" originally the hit song by John Lennon, "Hark The Herald Angels Sing", and "Oh Holy Night" are standouts, also "You Make It Feel Like Christmas" a new song by Neil Diamond are extra special.
This is a wonderful album that is now considered a classic. As Neil Diamond noted on the liner, he said "what chutzpah!" and I agree! It is a fantastic album that is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
