Christmas essential for the 30,40 somethings!
The best time had at Christmas is when you are a child .This album puts you right back there with your new Thunderbird2 and Action Man, or Sindy for the girls!
A perfect 'traditional' Christmas album.
Now I must admit I'm a little biased as I grew up with my Mum playing this on vinyl each Christmas but for me, this is a beautiful, traditional and well sung collection of great songs. I've found that many of the more modern compilations contain so many 'jazzy' tracks, which while fine in their own sphere, do not make me feel like Christmas is coming quite like this album.
While I'm a little young to remember anything else Andy Williams has done, his voice is crisp, strong and uplifting.
If you're looking for a bit of a traditional album to play to your family and children, to remind them of a few classic songs, then I'd highly recommend this album. 5 stars from me.
Merry Christmas everyone :)
Listen to both versions! They're both amazing!
This is such a great track, the original is an absolute classic but the new version featured in the Marks and Spencer advert is just incredible! Make sure you listen to them both, you won't be dissapointed!
Trip down memory lane!!
I remember my mum listening to this on vinyl! when I was a small girl. And I always LOVED Andy Williams Christmas Album up until the day it got left near a radiator and that was the end of poor Andy:(
Being a Christmas song freak, and getting my kids into the spirit of things, I looked for this Album on itunes, and I was overjoyed that it was here..... thank you itunes!!!
Great Songs for all the family to sing to, either wrapping presents, putting up the christmas tree, or just chilling out with a glass of wine, it will be sure to please whatever the scene. :)
