Overview

Garth Brooks & the Magic of Christmas

Originally released in 1999, Garth Brooks's second Christmas album has been updated with three new songs recorded for the TNT holiday special Call Me Claus. The new tune "Call Me Claus," a swinging big-band number, opens the disc. The two other new additions are "Mary Had a Little Lamb," a low-key, largely acoustic (except for its big, booming finish) retelling of the Christmas story with Trisha Yearwood supplying velvety harmony vocals to Garth's respectful lead, and a slightly lascivious R&B-flavored comedy tune, "'Zat You Santa Claus?" Otherwise, the fare consists of traditional carols on the order of the stately "O Little Town of Bethlehem" and modern standards such as "Winter Wonderland," "Sleigh Ride," and "Silver Bells." Brooks sounds like he had a good time making this album, and his impeccable balance of introspection and jubilation strikes the right note for the season.
