Make that heavy on the brandy if we are listening to your amazing collection!

My choice:

Funny! Big grin
John Denver's album has 'Daddy Please Don't Get Drunk This Christmas'.


The Mannheim Steamroller is a good collection. If you like them, you'd certainly like the George Winston - December album.

To be honest I actually like the Mariah Carey Christmas album. She has an incredible voice.

I would rather castrate myself with a rusty letter opener than listen to the Mariah Carey christmas album.


My pick: "Warten auf's Kristkind" by Die Roten Rosen (Die Toten Hosen)

Mariah Carey has a beautiful voice but she picks the worst song arrangers in the industry that makes her songs sound cheap and bubble gum like. That's really too bad.
I've heard her Christmas album before it was a huge disappointment.
A Christmas song should NEVER have a drum machine and digitally synthesized fake horn sounds! Leave that crap to the teenie-boppers such as Britney Spears and Ashanti.
A voice that's as beautiful as Mariah Carey should be backed by and orchestra and horn section like Nat King Cole.

'Fly got it right for me with the first album. Carpenter's Christmas is THE best. Now, I know they are on the square side, but the joy of listening to their music is the work put into it. Richard Carpenter's mixing of their tunes is amazing. All of their albums pushed the technical ability of the THEN state of the art studio gear.

Don't forget "Phil Specter's Christmas Album", which includes "Merry Christmas, Baby, Please Come Home".

Bruce Cockburn has a very nice Christmas album, half of which is sung in French.

Also, Starbucks has a nice little collection this year that includes Mahalia Jackson singing "O Holy Night", and other artists including Louis Armstrong, Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Ami Mann.

For me and my immediate family, the personal favorite is the ORIGINAL VERSION of The Little Drummer Boy album circa 1962 from the Harry Simeonne (sp) Chorale.

In this album, the title song is the 2nd song on the second side. Between songs there are narrations of the Christmas story (as written in Luke Chapter 2) thoughout the whole album.

I'm not sure if a cassette or CD version of this album was ever made. Back in 1988, we were thankfully still able to purchase another vinyl album copy since our old album (my mother bought it in 1962) was getting scratchy and worn.

A number two favorite for me was the Columbia Records compilation album Great Songs of Christmas that came out in the '60s and was sold at either Goodyear or Firestone tire dealers. My father bought it back then. The album featured artists like Andy Williams, Johnny Matthis, Tony Bennett, Robert Goulett, Carol Lawrence, Sally Anne Howes (of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang fame), Percy Faith (orchestra), and so forth.

The first song on the first side of the album was Andy Williams' Most Wonderful Time of the Year. All the songs on the first side were contemporary carols; the flipside had the more traditional carols and hymns. Interestingly, 2 of the more traditional songs on the album actually focusing on Christ's birth (Oh Little Town of Bethlehem & Silent Night) are sung by Barbara Steisand. This compilation album was probably a one-year, one-shot deal.

My third favorite (my brother gave me this CD last Christmas) is Vince Guaraldi's A Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack.

No Superfly, I do not. however, I think there might be an old Burt Bacharach 8-track circa 1971 somewhere in my mother's basement. I'm not sure what the album title was.

I'll say we are!
Yeah!
Let's sing it now!
Okay, Simon?
Okay!
Okay, Theodore?
Okay!
Okay, Alvin? Alvin? ALVIN!
OKAY!!!
Christmas, Christmas time is near,
Time for toys and time for cheer,
We've been good, but we can't last
Hurry Christmas, hurry fast,
Want a plane that loops the loop,
Me, I want a hula hoop,
We can hardly stand the wait,
Please Christmas, don't be late.

Okay fellas, get ready.
That was very good, Simon.
Naturally.
Very good Theodore.
Ahkhkhkh.
Ah, Alvin, you were a little flat, watch it.
Ah, Alvin? Alvin. ALVIN!
OKAY!!!

Want a plane that loops the loop,
I still want a hula hoop,
We can hardly stand the wait,
Please Christmas, don't be late.
We can hardly stand the wait,
Please Christmas, don't be late.

Very good, boys.
Let's sing it again!
Yeah, let's sing it again!
No, That's enough, let's not overdo it.
What do you mean not overdo it?
Overdo it?
We want to sing it again!
Now wait a minute, boys ...
Why can't we sing it again?

I don't remember the name of the album or who it was by, but an old friend of mine had a dubbed copy of an album full of dirty versions of Christmas songs, many of the lyrics were definitely not for the kiddies (One example is in the 12 Days of Christmas: "Four French Ticklers"). I remember going off with some friends right before Christmas listening to that tape and nearly pissing my pants from laughing so hard.

Hands down, no-doubt-about-it, the best Christmas album is "Boney M's 20 Greatest Christmas Songs".

Well I'll be darned!  Wow!
I have two 'Goodyear' Christmas LPs which are titled "Great Songs of Christmas". Fortunatly none has 'Little Drummer Boy'. Sorry but that's one Christmas song that does nothing for me.  Sad

I have # 9 and one other. It has Lena Horne, Andre Previn Lawernce Welk and a few others.

Boney M?
Is that smooth jazz or something?
