When I buy a "Carpenters" album I expect to hear, the Carpenters. This album appears to have been put together on the premiss that, Karen loved Christmas, so we should like this album. While there a a couple of the songs I like, like "Happy Holliday" it's not a Carpenter song, which was the whole reason I bought this album. I have an "Amy Grant" Christmas album that is one of my favorites. And, to no surprise, she sings every song. Which is what I was expecting when I bought this. If your looking for a Christmas CD to hear Karen Carpenter sing your favorite Xmas songs, Keep looking. **Find a place to sample this CD before buying.
