Get Holiday Album Part 1 and Part 2
There is nothing wrong with this album. In fact parts of it are simply beautiful . (Listen to A Christmas Love Song and I'll Be Home For Christmas, especially). But this album, as lovely as it is, is no match for Babs's first Christmas album, released in 1967. That album was just the perfect blend of traditional songs (''The Christmas Song,'' ''Jingle Bells'' ''Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas'') and less familiar stuff (''The Best Gift'' ''I Wonder as I Wander''). And I think Barbra does one of the best renditions of ''Silent Night'' that I've ever heard, by far. So I say please don't get this new album without purchasing the older one as well. They are kind of wonderful, special companion pieces that should be heard together. Happy Holidays! Happy Listening!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
