AllMusic Review by

Primarily late-'40s and late-'50s hits, many are more novelty than C&W. The Texas Troubadour, Ernest Tubb, hit the charts twice with his 1949 A-side, "Blue Christmas," and then the B-side, "White Christmas" (both are here). Country corn from Tex Ritter, Buck Owens, Eddy Arnold, and others, alongside Johnny Cash's solemn "The Little Drummer Boy."
