Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
Even swingers get in the holiday mood. On this terrific collection, the men who made Vegas groove dip into Christmas fare and come out smelling like desert roses. Whether it’s Dino giving a twinkle to such wintry classics as “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” “Winter Wonderland,” and “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm,” Sammy bringing his trademark zest to “The Christmas Song” and “Jingle Bells,” or the Chairman of the Board making magic with “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “The First Noel,” and “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” these three masters of song sound as if they’re having a joyful time of it all. Just don’t look for irony here. Whether it’s songs of cheer or ...

Just don’t look for irony here. Whether it’s songs of cheer or songs of faith, they all sing straight from the heart. And that sincerity is precisely what makes this collection the year-round joy it is.
All Music Guide - Matt Collar
Those who prefer a martini to a glass of egg nog should appreciate Christmas With the Rat Pack. Featuring various Christmas and holiday classics performed by Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Dean Martin, this is a stellar collection that sets an elegantly hip mood. The big surprise is that while the Rat Pack is commonly associated with '60s nightclub irreverance, the tracks compiled here showcase their softer, more reflective sides. Sinatra does his best choirboy take on "The Christmas Waltz" and Martin veritably melts into "Baby, It's Cold Outside." One complaint: A few more Davis cuts could have been included. Nonetheless, Christmas With the Rat Pack is a toasty one.

Rounding up cuts from these red-and-green-day Packers is a worthy endeavor.
