I can’t find an album of holiday music quite like this one. This is a rareity. iTunes has a modified version of the album. I was surprised when I saw a CD of the album for sale. I thought it had fallen off the face of the earth. The original album was released in 1964 on Columbia Records: CL 2262 and CS 9062 for the stereo version. The copy that I bought from Amazon was a reissue P 13351 on the Columbia Special Products label. The back cover is green instead of red, but the front cover is pretty much the same except for the Columbia eye logo is missing in the upper left hand corner.
The first song I remember from this album while I was growing up was their version of “Sleigh Ride” with all the exaggerated laughter towards the end of the song. My parents was collecting the Goodyear Christmas compilations and it happened to appear on Album Five, first song on the second side. I always wondered “What are they laughing about? Can a sleigh ride be that funny?” Anyhow the next song I got to hear of course was “Let it Snow” on Album Six of the Goodyear compilations. This rendition is full of life and really take off at the added bridge. Overall this album has great orchestration and their vocals are superb. Eydie’s voice has power and she knew how use it. It has emotional depth and expression.
Now I will warn you about the tacky lyrics in the title track about Hoping Santa’s sleigh getting a flat. We all know a sleigh doesn’t have tires. Even so, the joke stands out in the song and they pull it off quite well.
Overall, this stands as classic album to have in your collection of holiday music.

This is a great recording. What I love about this is that is record that it has 2 great singers that CAN SING. There is none of that auto-tuned music that is so widely used today. The recording have a timeless "Big Band" flavor and what a treat to the ears. My personal favorites on this is "That Holiday Feeling" & "Happy Holiday". They don't make music like this anymore

Wow, this couple wasn't from my time but I discovered them last year on a Christmas channel and just had to get this album! Not only are their voices the perfect compliment to each other but you can really hear the love they had for one another in their singing style. A true Christmas romance. It makes you want to throw an old school Christmas party! Hurry Home for Christmas and That Holiday Feeling are our favorites for sure.

It just wouldn't be Christmas in my home without 'Eydie and Steve' since all of my Christmas' over the last 25 years have filled my home with this darling couple's cheery, uplifting music! This is is my all-time favorite Christmas Holiday music! The title is perfect because it truly will give you 'that Holiday feeling'! All of this music is happy, uplifting, joyful and 'the music you'll want to hear throughout the holidays'. I've loved Eydie and Steve from the beginning and lived most of my life with their music. I gave my CD to a friend who loved the music so much I just ordered another one! Sadly, Eydie is no longer with us.

I have been waiting for this CD for a long time. The two of them are pure magic together. They really bring out the joy and happy feeling of the holiday season. So sad that Eydie is no longer with us, but her golden voice will continue to delight us for many generations to come. Also have Steve's newest CD and he makes a beautiful dedication to his wife. Steve still has it....it's a winner. God bless him!

Nice relaxing Christmas album.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 30, 2014
Sometimes it is nice to have something different from the usual people singing the usual Christmas songs. I was looking for someone/something else to listen to this year and spotted this collection on Amazon. I have always liked Steve and Eydies voices. and thought I would probably like this set of Christmas tunes. There are a few songs that we all know, ""White Christmas", "Winter Wonderland", "Baby, it's cold outside" etc but there are also a few I had not heard before ("Let me be the first to wish you Merry Christmas" , "What are you doing New Years Eve" ) so it was nice to hear some new songs, plus the couples interpretations of Christmas classics. This is certainly a CD I shall be getting out every December time now!

That holiday feelingReviewed in Canada on January 22, 2018
I absolutely love this Christmas CD as I am able to hear so many holiday classics performed by Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme. I didn't even know this classic CD was still available. It features so many songs conducted by Don Costas.
