CD Reviews

Let us all with one accord sing praises to our heavenly Lord

(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is a Christmas album by soul singer Jackie Wilson. It was originally released in 1963. The songs are all Christmas standards, with no new songs written for the album. The songs are arranged in an "easy listening" style that doesn't really suit Jackie's soulful voice. I would much rather have heard these Christmas songs played with some soul, instead of in a bland style that would be much better suited for Pat Boone. Despite the rather dull arrangements of the songs, Jackie does sing them extremely well. His singing on "Joy to the World" is especially impressive. This is a decent Christmas album, but I was expecting something more exciting from "Mr. Excitement"."
