I truly LOVE the sincerity and depth of emotion that Willie Nelson can deliver in so many of his ballads. My husband is a big fan, too. So I thought it would be wonderful to hear his interpretations of classic Christmas songs.
Wow, were we disappointed!
It sounds to us like Willie was just going through the motions on this CD. His great heart wasn't in these Christmas songs at all. In fact, I found myself wondering why he even bothered to do a Christmas album.
This CD does include several recordings from Willie's other CDs (songs like "Wonderful World" and "Pretty Paper", for example). Of course, they're still good. But both my husband and I thought the rest were uninspired, and uninspiring.
So we won't be listening to this CD again. In fact, it's already in the bag I keep for Goodwill donations.
Sorry, Willie, but these two fans think you could have done a whole lot better!

Later note: I offered this CD to a friend who also likes Willie Nelson, to she what she thinks. She doesn't have a problem with it. So take our review with a grain of salt! :-)
