Dean Martin's holiday specials qualified as "must-see TV" decades before that phrase was coined. His easygoing charm and velvety smooth voice won over a generation of fans in the 1950s and 1960s--and still holds sway over modern-day hipsters. This holiday album helps to show why. Never one for cheap sentiment, Dino sticks to the sultry ballads that he knows so well, emphasizing tunes like "Baby, It's Cold Outside" and "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm" over traditional carols. --David Sprague

"Dean Martin's "Season's Greetings" is the only Dean Martin album I own--a friend got it for me after being shocked that it was not part of our Christmastime CD collection. I have been really very pleasantly surprised by it. What an incredibly smooooooth voice this native Ohioan was blessed with, and how skillfully he uses it! The album opens with "White Christmas," on which Martin conveys regret and longing beautifully. The very next song--"Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" is a gorgeously boppy, finger-poppin' Rat Pack rendition of this classic Christmas tune. Martin sounds as though he's holding a martini and a cigarette while he's singing, and that's part of the fun. What can I say--the guy was the epitome of cool!On the underused "Baby, It's Cold Outside," Martin tries to convince a cadre of female singers to stay inside with him ("I'll hold your hands, they're just like ice")--I know I'd be convinced! "Winter Wonderland" incorporates sleigh bells, smooth violins, and oohing-aahing background singers to evoke a fantasy winter snowscape. "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" never sounded as good and as swingin' as it does here in Martin's capable hands. His voice is so mellow, so rich, so inimitably smooth that every song is a delight. Highly recommended!"
