Product Description

Product Description

At the very peak of his success in 1962, Frankie Avalon joined the rush of artists releasing Christmas albums and opted for a relatively safe formula. The majority of the material is standard Christmas fare, ranging from Irvin Berlins perennial favourite White Christmas to Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas. The album is well played and well performed, pretty much as you would expect from a Frankie Avalon release, and whilst there are no surprises or upbeat rock and rollers, it is a pleasant and undemanding album. It will certainly appeal to the legion of Frankie fans, who lapped the album up on its original release in 1962.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas Spirit 16 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Many of the tracks on this album are original and add a taste of something new. The orchestrations are lush and Frankies maturing voice has a touch of Vic Damone about it. Good seasonal fare.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great crooner style christmas cd 17 April 2002
By rodney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Probably recorded in the sixties, Frankie Avalon`s "Frankie Avalon`s Christmas Album" is as good (or at least up there) as many crooner christmas cd`s out there. Perry Como, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, and Dean Martin's christmas styles is what you`ll get here. Actually, Vic Damone is probably who Franke sounds like the most here.

Now, Frankie's vocal delivery isn't as pure or defined as those mentioned and seems to lack a little in the way of emotion and singing on key, but it is still a pleasant, deep, and enjoyable voice that if you want a christmas crooner offering that isn't one of the norms you usually hear at christmas time, then try Frankie's christmas cd.

Of special note on this album and perhaps the best things about it is the wonderful orchestra that backs up Frankie Avalon. Some wonderful arrangements and at times, lush strings to help this album get one into the christmas mood. A decent backing chorus also adds to the beauty of this cd.

Just listen to "THE CHRISTMAS SONG," "I`LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS," "HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS," and the other 9 songs and you`ll know why I say this cd is up there (in general) with some other crooner cd's.

Half the songs you`ll probably know, the other half you most likely won`t, so you get some great refreshing new ones, but also terrific old standards.

While an album (cd) like 'Perry Como's - Seasons Greetings' is still a better christmas offering, this 'Franke Avalon's Christmas Album' is a very fine and fresh crooner christmas cd that I recommend with 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very pleasant, traditional Christmas album 6 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Avalon's Christmas album totally captures the spirit of the season. The arrangements are all top-notch and so are Avalon's vocals. His range is truly impressive, especially in light of the fact that his critics have been saying for years that he can't sing. They should get a copy of this truly enjoyable Christmas album and reasses their evaluation of his talent. Finally, it should be noted that the sound on this CD is outstanding. Every string and background voice is crystal-clear.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a truly enjoyable Christmas album 23 Dec 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have always been a huge Frankie Avalon fan and think this CD is very good. I was actually hoping this CD was done more recently as Frankie's voice at the present is even more enjoyable as can be witnessed in Grease and his more recent CD, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which by the way, in my opinion is great. I am very glad I purchased this Christmas CD and beleive it would enhance anyones Christmas musical collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a Must-Have 29 Nov 2009
By Blast from the Past - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is a wonderful, truly timeless collection of new Christmas songs infused with several familiar Holiday favorites. Each song stirs it's own Christmas magic with a beautiful score, which sounded to be performed by a full orchestra. The amazing score, plus Frankie's tender, heart-felt renditions of each song make this CD a Christmas must-have. My only regret is that there are only 12 tracks - can we lobby for a sequel?

The track list includes:
1. A Merry Christmas 2:14
2. Blue Christmas 2:57
3. Christmas Magic 3:13
4. White Christmas 3:20
5. You're All I Want For Christmas 3:12
6. Christmas Holiday 2:09
7. Christmas and You 3:04
8. Dear Gesu Bambino 2:42
9. The Christmas Song 2:06
10. Christmas Medley 4:24
11. I'll Be Home For Christmas 3:15
12. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
