5 stars for Silent Night as sung by Dr. John

"This album is not, in general, my style - I prefer Christmas albums that are either entirely secular or entirely religious. However, Dr. John's rendition of Silent Night makes me willing to forgive anything. The Roches versions of Adeste Fidelis and Angels We Have Heard on High are well done. Eastern Bloc's Jingle Bells and Eugene Ruffolo's Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas had little appeal. So why five stars? for Dr. John's Silent Night - you need to hear it."
Another vote for Dr. John

"Dr. John's "Silent Night" is definitely the best reason to get this album. He also does a weird, trippy instrumental version of "Toyland", that is not nearly as good. The Roches also contribute two nice a capella versions of Christmas classics. Nicolette Larson does a couple of obscure covers, including an excellent version of Steve Earle's "Nothing But a Child". The second half of the disc is pretty good too, except for the very annoying "Good News" by Rob Mathes. But don't worry about that... Dr. John's "Silent Night" makes the whole thing worth buying."
