There has been enough written about Elvis Presley. His legacy is in his voice. Christmas and gospels were important to him. This compilation of standards is shifted up into top gear by Elvis. The numbers are familiar but are unique given the Presley stamp. Listen to 'Blue Christmas' with Martina McBride, 'O Come All You Faithful with the Jordanaires and the Imperials, 'I'll Be Home For Christmas' with Carrie Underwood and 'If Everyday Was Like Christmas', 'It Won't Seem Like Christmas Without You'. Presley is an iconic figure. His Christmas album is rightly subtitled 'Classic'. If you don't have it, suggest you do at a bargain price. He has the ability to convey the feeling of Christmas in a genuine way through song. His gospel music is also testament to that.
Bought this for my Mum for Christmas, she says it is the best Christmas album she has ever had. If you are an Elvis fan, what better Christmas album could there be? Very Christmassy and a lovely selection of songs
Being an Elvis fan, who no longer has a record player of any kind, I have been replacing all my Elvis records with CDs. This is the last one I needed, and it really made my Christmas to be able to listen to his mellow tones singing the words of the Christmas songs/hymns again.
