AllMusic Review by

This is a well-rounded compilation of R&B, rock & roll, pop, and rocking instrumentals (the Ventures and Santo & Johnny). Aretha Franklin is elegant on "Winter Wonderland," and while Stevie Wonder and the Supremes represent "The Motown Sound." Roy Orbison is in top form on "Pretty Paper," and Bobby "Boris" Pickett would make the Grinch smile with "Monsters' Holiday."
