5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas at it's best 9 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The wonderful Burl Ives singing beautiful Christmas songs and hymns. Such a pleasure to listen to and very moving. Ave Maria sung in English there's nothing not to like about this album also Santa Mouse and Jingle Bells for the children. The real meaning of Christmas not crass and commercialised. Keep this it's definitely one for the collectors and very clear sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars It makes Christmas complete! 15 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard this album when I was a child, and always promised myself a copy, but could never get one, and then I was told about Amazon UK-You have exceeded all of my expectations! You have always given me top quality and speedy delivery, and I always recommend you to my family and friends! I will always order my specially wanted items from you, as you always have what I want!
I listened to the Burl Ives album at Christmas, and it brought back to memories of
past traditional Cristmasses that seems to have disappeared thanks to commercialisation!
I will always recommend Amazon UK tp anyone who likes traditional Christmas songs and carols!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm Christmas memories waiting to happen. 7 Dec 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Well I remember looking at this album cover as a child and thinking that this bald and bearded man just had to be Santa Claus. And well he might be; with that gentle and ever so slightly husky voice, Burl Ives sings familiar and novel Christmas songs with a charm bringing to mind a kindly grandpa singing softly to the toddlers on his knee. His rendition of the classic "Jingle Bells" evokes the pure spirit of the song: care- free abandon and joyful celebration. The unique
"Santa Mouse" will charm the small children, and may have the adults humming the contagious tune as well. The warmth and sincerity of the entire album are particularly evident in Ives' almost fumbled reminiscence of "Oh, What a Lucky Boy Am I", and whether it be nostalgia or the innocence of the recitation, "Happy Birthday, Jesus" still occasionally brings a secret tear to my eye. Where the more formal tracks ( O, Holy Night, It Came Upon the Midnight Clear) show up Ives' less than perfect sining voice, the songs are unfailingly carried by the earnest and gentle manner of this very genuine artist. A very worthwhile addition to the Christmas collection of any family who believes in the simple charm of Christmas.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tradition close to our hearts 5 Dec 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
For years, our family listened to this album at the holidays. It was a part of our Christmas. The album we have is old and scratchy, but it is still a favorite and we are thrilled to find it on CD. "Happy Birthday Jesus" is one of the most beautifully crafted works I have ever known for Christmas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Christmas album 29 Sep 2003
By Candace Scott - Published on
Format:Audio CD
If you appreciate Burl Ives' unique voice and folk approach to singing, you will adore this collection of Christmas songs from 1968. This is a fine and unusual Christmas album, since Burl's versions of these songs are not the standard ones. But they are delightful nonetheless. My only criticism is that the album omits Burl's greatest Christmas song, "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas," one of the stellar songs from his 1964 Christmas special, Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
Burl Ives is an American icon and it's a pity that his style of music has gone out of fashion. This album is a feel good effort and it's impossible not to listen to it without smiling, laughing and wishing Burl was still around to sing his special brand of music. Hopefully this album will induce you to sample some of Burl Ives' other non-Christmas efforts. He was uniquely talented and a pleasure to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic Christmas album by Burl from 1968 29 Nov 2001
By Bradley Olson - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This excellent Christmas album is definitely a classic. He does do fine renditions of Christmas standards such as Jingle Bells, It Came a Midnight Clear, O Holy Night, etc. but some of the tracks that makes this album worth buying alone include "Santa Mouse" and number one, the prayer entitled "Happy Birthday Jesus" and of course the unique voice of Burl Ives.

1.0 out of 5 stars talking not singing 21 Nov 2003
By Kate - Published on
Format:Audio CD
although Burl Ives has a lovely voice, I bought this CD expecting him to be singing the songs from my childhood. Unfortunately he is not singing in most of the tracks- just speaking the words to a background choir and orchestra.
Its okay but my kids wanted carols they could sing along to in the car and this did not deliver
