The Funniest of My Treasured Christmas Memories

(3 out of 5 stars)
"I first heard this CD when my roommate received it in a care package. We had never heard of any of these merry "all stars" before, but that did not stop us from giving it a chance. The musicians sound like they were recruited from the local junior high and high school, and to put it nicely, the vocals sounded unpolished.I happened to live with this same roommate for four years, and we eagerly looked forward to the Yule season so we could get a good jolly laugh from this album. The song that really sends us into hysterics is "Oh Holy Night" in which the vocalist's voice does not reach the high notes, (not for lack of trying, mind you) as the junior high brass section swells out from the background.I do not recommend this CD to anyone who is looking for serious enjoyment of their favorite cherished Christmas tunes. However, if you are giving someone with a good sense of humor a gift, it might be just the right thing. This All-Star Merry Christmas has certainly become one of my fond memories, (thus the 3 whole stars) and I think of it each year with a smile."
