For the cheap price you get 50 original songs from the 40's and 50's. Most of them are familiar classics, but there are a few I dont like such as a couple of Seeger Sisters songs and Ernest Tubbs country and western version of 'Blue Christmas' They should have used Elvis Presleys version instead of his 'I Believe' which is not really a christmas song but there are two more Elvis songs included.
Also on the 2 cd album is Bing Crosby singin 'White Christmas' (and 3 other good songs). Judy Garlands' 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas' and Nat King Coles' hit 'The Christmas Song'
Other star names singing christmassy songs and carols are Dean Martin, Beverley Sisters, Doris Day, Petula Clark, Frank Sinatra and Eartha Kitt and many more.
Other classic songs and carols include 'Silent Night' 'The Twelve Days Of Christmas' 'We Wish You A Merry Christmas' 'Silver Bells' 'The Little Drummer Boy'
and the only instrumental in this collection 'Sleigh Ride' (by Leroy Anderson & His Orchestra)
I have given full 5 stars even though there are a few I dont like but I just skip those and get into the festive mood listening to the rest which most of them are brilliant seasonal or spiritual classics.
