What I like best about this CD is its variety of musical styles. Stevie Wonder shines on a couple of originals that are now Christmas standards: the thought provoking Someday At Christmas and the festive What Christmas Means To Me. Everyone's favorite Jehovah's Witnesses, The Jackson 5, (who didn't celebrate Christmas but apparently recorded whatever Motown asked them to) add youthful exhuberance with Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, Frosty The Snowman, and I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus. The Temptations show off their versatility, their tracks among the strongest cuts, be they fun (Rudolph) or poignant (My Christmas Tree, Silent Night). The Supremes' stuff is okay. Their best Christmas tune, the haunting Born Of Mary, isn't on this set. Their take on The Children's Song though will have you ding-donging for days. BY the way: all the kids mentioned in this song belong to Diana's main squeeze at the time, Berry Gordy.
My favorite Motown Christmas recording is one nobody ever talks about: The Miracles' It's Christmas Time. A truly magnificent, goosebump creating, retelling of the Nativity. One of Smokey's greatest vocal performances ever, this recording could convert an atheist!

The music on the CD was great. I ordered 3 CD's and one of the cases was broken. I bought these as gifts and I had to replace the case with one that I had.Published 6 months ago by Amazon Customer
