1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible Recordings 6 Dec 2003
By tallguy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD primarily for the old Doris Day tracks on it. Unfortunately, they sound like they have never been remastered and they are underwater. Horrible sound and a big disappointment that Laserlight/Delta music put out. Why did they bother?
I would recommend the new "Doris Day Christmas Album" which has been re-released (by either Columbia or Sony). You can find it on Amazon UK or Tower Records UK. It has been out of print for a long time, but finally was re-released in November 2003. It has all 9 original tracks of the Doris Day Christmas Album as released in 1964. If you prefer the "older" tracks like "Here Comes Santa Claus" as found on this CD, the Personal Christmas Collection actually has decent remasters of the same recordings on this CD. Either way, don't waste your money on this CD.
One track on this CD has Doris' beautiful rendition of "Second Star to the Right" but again it is a bad recording. I recommend the "Secret Love" box set from Bear Family Records -- all the 1950s recordings sound like they were recorded yesterday - and this same song sounds great.
Doris is a wonderful singer -- one of the 20th Century's best.

4.0 out of 5 stars cHRISTMAS WITH DINAH & FRIENDS 13 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The highlight of this Cd is hearing a very young Peggy Lee sing a live version of "The Christmas Song" and the Dinah Shore tracks are nice(as far as I know Dinah's only Christmas songs). Most of these selections were taken from V-Discs and radio broadcasts. Recommended to jazz vocal buffs as well as casual listers alike.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Ever! 15 Dec 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I agree with tallguy - this is bad. This CD sounds like it was recorded off of an old radio broadcast - and I don't mean at the station! The sound is awful and the quality makes me wonder if this might not be a bootlegged copy of the songs. It sure isn't a studio quality recording. I cannot believe anyone connected with any of the recording artists would have approved this release. A junior high student with a cheap cassette recorder and an equally cheap radio could make a recording this good.
Even if you are a fan of the 40's-type music, DON'T BUY this one! Stick with the "Doris Day Christmas Album" because it is so much better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Take into account the source material 12 Jun 2008
By DVD buff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
OK, so this isn't a great-sounding CD. Or even a good-sounding CD. It's a historical document. Perhaps the manufacturer of the CD should have put something to that effect on the cover. But it's by no means horrible.

Doris Day Christmas material is easy to come by. Not true for Christmas songs by Dinah Shore. While there are really only three Christmas songs sung by Dinah here (plus parts of a medley), these are rare and valuable additions to the Dinah Shore catalog.

The poor quality of the CD obviously comes from the source material. I have no knowledge of the original source, but I'm guessing that this was taken from an acetate transcription of a radio broadcast from probably 1949 or 1950.

So don't buy this if you're wanting some nice Christmas songs by Doris Day; stick to her Christmas CDs. But for the collector of all things Doris and Dinah, this is a must. And it's really cheap!

5.0 out of 5 stars Material Makes Up For Audio Quality 24 Jan 2008
By Casey J. Costello - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Although I do agree with the previous reviewers in that the audio quality is sub-par for most of the tracks, I believe that the material rectifies this fact because of the rarity of some of the songs. Some of the Doris Day songs are easy to come by; you can find some on her "Personal Christmas Album" CD--and with much better audio quality. However, some of the tracks--particularly a few of the Dinah Shore tracks such as "The First Noel" are extremely rare and to my knowledge are only available on this CD; they are gems (I would really like to know where LaserLight gets these songs). Therefore, if you keep this in mind when listening to the recordings, you may be very pleased with this album.
