"Good to see that Amazon is able to provide this hard-to-find Christmas cd. I myself have had it on cassette for many years & played it til it warped. About 2 years ago I was fortunate enough to find it in my favorite NYC record store but never got around to reviewing it til now. Plenty of rarities here as well as songs that can be found on many other collections but all in all a terrific mix. One of my own favorites is Wintertime by the Belmonts(the very same guys who've also backed up Dion), always a treat to hear and their gorgeous harmonies bring back fond memories of past Christmases in years gone by. There are 2 songs with the same title-It's Christmas Time-as done by The Five Keys & Marvin & Johnny, respectively. The 2 songs couldn't be more different but each are special in their own way. Other rarities include Look Around You, It's Christmas Time by Bobby Goldsboro; God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen by Manfred Mann as well as I Want Elvis For Christmas by the Holly Twins(with Eddie Cochran providing backup). Many other hard to find tunes are here so this collection is a MUST-HAVE for anyone appreciative of great Christmas classics. Highly recommended."
