20th Century Masters - The Christmas Collection: The Best of the Supremes

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
20th Century Masters - The Christmas Collection reissues all but one song from the recordings for the Supremes' 1965 holiday record, Merry Christmas, the group's only contribution to the seasonal market. Though none of these tracks were recorded at Motown's studios only the vocals were, Merry Christmas was one of the label's best Christmas records; Diana Ross' charming innocence brought across the novelties "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," "Twinkle Twinkle Little Me" as well as the sacred tunes "Born of Mary," "Children's Christmas Song", and the harmony backing of Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard made the Supremes' version of "White Christmas" the best ever by a rock group....
