All Music Guide - Richard S. Ginell
Herb Alpert turned to jazz's Shorty Rogers -- then toiling in the L.A. film and TV studios -- for voice and string arrangements on his Christmas album, and Rogers in turn went all out for schmaltz. Rogers' cooing voices introduce several of the tunes, whereupon the Tijuana Brass do their mostly unrelated Ameriachi thing familiar from past albums. Indeed, "Las Mananitas" seems to have been lifted from an obscure B-side of a 45 and overdubbed with the Rogers treatment. Jingling bells is a recurring song theme -- first with "Jingle Bells," then the cloying "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle," and ultimately "Jingle Bell Rock." For the first time in a long time, Alpert's ...

Jingling bells is a recurring song theme -- first with "Jingle Bells," then the cloying "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle," and ultimately "Jingle Bell Rock." For the first time in a long time, Alpert's sense of pacing occasionally goes awry; "My Favorite Things" nearly comes apart in the silences and piano/vocal interlude between the TJB grooves, and "Sleigh Ride" screeches to a dead halt. And yet time and further exposure has revealed this record's homey charms, which no doubt is one reason why it continues to be available on CD where other TJB best-sellers have fallen by the wayside.

    FANTASTIC!!!

    I have had this cassette and always get very nostalgic when hearing it. For the past 5 or 6 years, I have been purchasing the Christmas music I listened to as a child and this album, my absolute favorite, has not been available on CD. Imagine my surprize when I checked and saw that it would be released this year! I purchased enough copies so that I could give it to my brothers and sisters for Christmas as well as give my children their own copy. Everyone enjoys "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle" and it's easy for children to learn. This album has been a tradition in my family since it was released in 1968 and I am so glad that I can share it with a whole new generation.

    The Best Christmas CD you can buy!

    My mom and dad had this album when I was growing up. I've been trying to find it on CD for several Christmases. It brings joy to my heart and brings back memories.
