Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Try to forget the fact that Bing Crosby probably never had to record another song in his life after he immortalised White Christmas. If you can do that, you'll find plenty more to like in this crooning Christmas collection. There's the romantic Bing, charming the tinsel right off the tree with "The Christmas Song", and that cure for cabin fever, "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" There's the Reverent Bing, solemnly singing "Adeste Fideles". And of course, there's Bing the showman, belting out "Good King Wenceslas" with a bit of that ole vaudeville shine. But no matter what you're told, "White Christmas" will be the number one reason for sticking this one in your stocking and who can blame you? It's as timeless now as it was way back then. --Steve Gdula

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Christmas Music? You Need This! 8 Nov 2003
By Mark Baker TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I love Christmas music, often pulling it out to listen to mid-year. And you'll never catch me listening to anything but Christmas music from Thanksgiving to Christmas. That's why I'm a little ashamed to admit to only just now getting this classic collection.
What I've been missing all these years is a truly wonderful CD. Bing has a rich, strong voice that is pleasing to listen to. The arrangements feel dated, but that's part of the charm. It feels like an old friend from the very first listen.
My only real complaint (and a minor one at that) is the pacing of the album. The first six tracks are all slower numbers. They do include a great version of "Silent Night," and Bing's classic recording of "White Christmas," so I do enjoy listening to them. Still, by "I'll be Home for Christmas," I'm ready for an upbeat track.
Fortunately, the second half doesn't disappoint in that regard. "Jingle Bells" and "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town," both sung with the Andrews Sisters, kick things up a notch or two. Both are fairly familiar arrangements with just enough newness to set them apart from the other versions you already have.
The CD ends with the songs I was unfamiliar with. "Christmas in Killarney" is a fanciful description of the holiday in Ireland, while "Mele Kalikimaka" wishes us a Merry Christmas from Hawaii. Both songs sound a little like the land they represent and are a fun way to end the CD.
The recordings here are old, as shown by the occasional scratchy background noise, especially noticeable on "Adeste Fideles." But it doesn't affect my enjoyment one bit. My only regret is not getting this great CD sooner.

5.0 out of 5 stars simply wonderful ! 28 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you are looking for a christmas cd that oozes christmas appeal then this is the one for you. Bing crosby and co sing the most wonderful festive songs that will have you humming all day long. Bing's voice calms and soothes those nerves frayed by christmas shopping and sends thoughts back to childhood times. We had this album when I was little and I sought it out once more to play to my children who now love it as much as I do.Its a must for all those you earn for an old fashioned christmas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate christmas album!! 9 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
My nan bought me this album on vinyl over 25 years ago. It got played everyday from the start of December until january. can`t listen to christmas music after that, doesn`t feel right. 5 years ago i bought it on cd because my record player broke. Its the perfect Christmas album but i do miss listening to it on vinyl. That crackling sound adds to it for me. i can`t recommend this album enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Christmas CD in the world 12 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD
Love this CD. This has been my soundtrack of Christmas since I was a child, my mother has it on vinyl. I tried may times to get it but it was never the same version. This is the exact same one I grew up listening too and I played it on Christmas morning to my children.
