TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 16 November 2015
If like me, you like soul and Tamla Motown, you will find a lot to like on this Christmas CD, as well as a lot of established favourites from across the decades, like Chris de Burgh's 'A Spaceman Came Travelling', Slade's 'Merry Christmas Everybody' and The Darkness' 'Christmas Time (Don't Let The Bells End)'.

The soul and Tamla input covers Christmas classics like Stevie Wonder doing 'Little Drummer Boy', James Brown's 'Merry Christmas Baby', The Supremes covering 'Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer', along with Love Unlimited's cracking 'It May Be Winter Outside (But In My Heart It's Spring).'

It isn't all secular songs, Smokey Robinson does a medley of Away in A Manger and The Coventry Carol. Elaine Paige also covers The Coventry Carol, which was the stand-out track of her Eighties Christmas album.
There are a couple of offbeat inclusions; I'm not sure what Judy Collins' 'Amazing Grace' is doing on this album, and I'd never heard of Marvin Gaye's 'Purple Snowflakes' until now (and I thought I was a fan!).

Overall though this is a cracking, low-budget CD to get you in the Christmas spirit. Even if you aren't a soul and Tamla fan there's plenty of classics here to keep you happy at a much lower cost than you'd pay for other compilations.

Ok I expected a lot of the songs to be repeats of what I already own but I did expect more of the songs to be by Original artists or at least sung the way way they were supposed to sound.Some of the Artists tried to add their interpretation of some of the classics which were painful to listen to. I know I have become a bit of an "Oldie" but even my son and his friends agreed it was Crap!! Will end up buying one of them ipod things and cherrypick the decent songs,

I was looking at two boxed sets at the time I ordered. I think I ordered the wrong one. There were songs on this that I have never heard before, hardly "Greatest Ever". Conversely there were really good songs missing. I won't be playing this much, not even at Christmas.

When I first saw the est arrival date I was really thinking of cancelling but What the hell it only left me with 354 days till I could play it (joking). I received the item over a week before the estimated time. I have run all three discs and checked for any little hiccups and once again I'm impressed. For what I paid I am pleased with the outcome. I would have no problem purchasing from the seller in the future but I think it would be before the Christmas rush next time

I just wanted some Christmas songs that were a little more modern to the ones I already had, this filled what I wanted. All good, I would buy from this seller again 10/10

Go on! You know you want to.. Get some cheesy christmas songs on and get into the festive mood! To be honest, there's lots of old and new stuff on these cds, mostly good though and great value for money.
