One outstanding Christmas Song

"Perry Como's calm, steady and laid back approach to singing meshes well with the Christmas genre. He effortlessly conveys the spirit of the Holidays and infuses all of his songs with a gentle, yet beautiful, manner. Perry Como is seriously under-appreciated today and that's a shame, because he used his voice simply and effectively for sixty years. If you have a stressful job and need to relax when you come home, Perry Como will help you and this album is perfect for daydreaming and relaxing.Como's version of "Ave Maria" here is superior to his attempt in the 1950's. His voice has deepened slightly here and he uses is with telling effect. But the outstanding song is undoubtedly "Christmas Dream," a little known classic. This was used over the opening credits of Jon Voight's 1974 film, "The Odessa File." I spent years looking for this song on vinyl and finally have found it here. I urge you to listen to this beautiful song, one of Perry's absolute classics."
The equivalent of a CD Single

"This compact disc release, a replication of the original 1982 vinyl album, is the equivalent of what might be called an LP or CD single. It features two of Perry's more recent single RCA Victor Christmas recordings, one titled "Christmas Dream", an Andrew Lloyd Webber & Tim Rice composition, which he recorded in 1974 for the soundtrack of "The Odessa File" and the title track which was composed by Nick Perito, Perry's long time conductor and arranger following in the shoes of Mitchell Ayres. Nick Perito's composition may well be Perry's most definitive popular Christmas recording since his 1959 re-recording of "Home for the Holidays" and almost autobiographical in nature. The other recordings in this compilation are drawn from Perry's two Christmas stereo albums "Seasons Greetings from Perry Como" ( 1959 ) and "The Perry Como Christmas Album" ( 1968 ) with one hymn "Bless This House" ( monaural ) recorded in 1950 and featured within his well known 1956 RCA Victor album "I Believe". Most fans will own both of these Christmas albums but the two singles featured herein are well worth the price of admission."
"Christmas Dream" -- At Last!

"Growing up, Perry Como was always synonymous with Christmas in our house. (Well, Perry and Bing and Johnny Mathis!) We always spun one of his old holiday albums -- I don't think it ever came out on CD, but the cover had Perry's face inside a Christmas wreath. I wish I could find that one! But it was wonderful to find THIS one, and especially great to find the terrific, bouncy polka-like tune, "Christmas Dream," which I had loved ever since hearing it in the movie "The Odessa File." When "Odessa File" recently played on TV, I heard that song again and knew I had to find it. Fortunately I came here and found out it was on this Como album -- believe me, this song alone is worth the price of the CD! But you also get Perry's classic "Toyland," his graceful and reverent "Ave Maria" and so much more. Light up the Christmas tree, turn on the CD player and snuggle up to enjoy this very entertaining album, and let the relaxed voice of Mr. C take you back to a simpler time."
