    Five stars if you like fun Holiday music... This is BY FAR one of my favorite holiday discs. I've had this one for 10+ years and I always look forward to slapping on and dancing around while getting things ready for Christmas. Not too schmaltzy -- like some holiday collections can get -- Hipster's is beatific, cheerful and festive with excellent song selection(Louis Armstrong, Pearl Bailey, c'mon, what's better for you?) And Tim Fuller offers the original elegantly-wasted, lounge version of Silent Night(even Bill Murray couldn't have mocked better) that will try to hard to make your Christmas bright, daddy-o. This disc swings... GREAT for holiday parties or just staring at the twinklin lights getting "goofed on eggnog." Enjoy.

    Ultimate Holiday Collection for R&B

    If you have been looking for a great collection of holiday music and were disappointed by some of the selections, look no further. This is it. What more could you ask for?
