"This is a tribute Christmas album to Elvis Presley. It was recorded by the Jordanaires, who sang back up vocals on most of Elvis' records of the '50s and '60s, including his first Christmas album. Elvis' original guitarist Scotty Moore, and his original drummer D.J. Fontana, also participated in the recording sessions. The Jordanaires re-recorded all the songs they did for Elvis' first Christmas album, and did a decent job of it, though they can't match the versions they did with Elvis. But since they only recorded eight song for the Elvis Christmas album, they had to add some other songs to this album. So, they also recorded some Christmas songs that Elvis never recorded. But for some unknown reason, they decided to have Elvis clone Orion sing lead on most of the songs that Elvis never sang. For those of you who don't remember Orion, he was an Elvis soundalike who performed while wearing a Lone Ranger mask after Elvis died, in an attempt to fool people into thinking that Elvis faked his death and was now calling himself Orion. Anyway, the songs sung by Orion here are not actually that bad, if you can get over the whole "pretending to be Elvis" thing. The final track here features the Jordanaires, Scotty and D.J. reminiscing about the recording of Elvis' first Christmas album. This is a decent Christmas album, but you are better off sticking with Elvis himself."
