I love Perry Como's voice! This CD is good, but I can understand some of the low ratings as we are now used to digital quality sound on CDs, DVDs, and TV. This CD, however, has some older recordings on it and they are still in the old Mono, so do sound a little flat and tinny, especially considering the digital age we now live in. But that is the was it was once, so consider it a history lesson, and sit back and enjoy on of best crooners of all times ing Christmas.

Yuck! Although I understand, and truly enjoy, the age of the crooner, we did not enjoy much of this album at all.

Good value-for-money!

"This compact disc is worth every penny and more despite the fact that it's claim of being Perry's "Greatest Christmas Songs" is hardly credible! The only flaw with this set is what it might have been had BMG tried to create a definitive collection of Perry's "Merry Christmas Music". It should have been a 2 or 3 CD box set. The remastering and "remixing" is well done and with unusual sensitivity by someone named Mike Hartry who "remixed" several tracks. This set almost completes Perry's popular 1968 "Christmas Album" and this will frustrate fans who would have liked to have the "whole" album. The songs from Perry's "Merry Christmas Music" compilation and his 1959 "Season's Greetings" are not as rare as these people seem to think but Perry's delightful rendition of "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" certainly is, as are the two singles from 1967 and the unreleased song from 1968, and even Perry's 1954 single version of "Home For the Holidays" ( which BMG fails to mention, by the way, for those who might have expected the 1959 popular stereo version ). The definitive collection of Perry Como Christmas Songs is still beyond our grasp but this CD is a first step."
Covers the Sacred and Secular with love of the season.

"I was born in 1953 and grew up listening to Perry Como as a kid. I've loved every type of music from hard rock to classical, but I am in love with Christmas music. Perry Como always had a great show, and to the young people of today, it was a time when the entire family would sit to enjoy not just musical talent, but a theme. A theme of family unity. I recently saw Mr. C. (his nickname) perform a Christmas concert in Ireland in 1993. Although his hearing is going, his voice is still smooth as silk. Singers of his ilk and breed are fast leaving. Since Sinatra died, it's very important to hold on to performers like Perry Como. Is he a square? I'd say that by today's standards...he is. But, in a timeless way, he is a standard of what Christmas music should be. His music was performed with a choir with a fire in the fireplace, a Christmas tree and all the trimmings. If I could get in my time machine and return to 1959 to hear one of the top Christmas balladeers from all time...I'd be ecstatic! Enjoy!!"
