"In my opinion, "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" sung by T Bone Burnett is worth the price of the CD. After hearing it, I looked for a Christmas CD by him alone. "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" was done in a very unique way. I wouldn't want an entire CD of this style of "shout" music, but it was the perfect ending to the CD. Several of the songs were excellent, including the songs by Harry Connick, Wynton Marsalis, and Shelleyan Orphan.The songs on this CD use many different acoustic intruments: piano, guitar, strings, harmonica, and so on. That is just about the only thing that these songs have in common. This CD is an eclectic collection of jazz, blues, country, folk, and traditional style Christmas carols. Some are upbeat and cheery, some are slow and soothing. The sound quality was acceptable.If this will be your only Christmas CD, Acoustic Christmas would not be my recommendation. However, if you have several Christmas CD's, and you are looking for something different, several of these songs will fit the bill. I recommend this CD for acoustic music lovers."

"I have owned this on cassette for about 10 years now & I still enjoy playing it; starting in October when I get out my carton of Christmas music. Most of the tunes here are enjoyable, but my all-time favorite is Shawn Colvin's version of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas-what a beautiful voice! This is really an electic mix of songs, something for everyone. Highly recommended."
