AllMusic Review by

This 1991 reissue includes eight of the original 11 tracks included on the Atco 1968 release (a rare album still worth seeking), with 11 more tracks added from the Atlantic vaults. Few, if any, Christmas compilations are more essential than this. Otis Redding's performances of "White Christmas" and "Merry Christmas, Baby" are alone worth the price of admission. Clarence Carter's funky "Back Door Santa" and Joe Tex's ballad "I'll Make Every Day Christmas (For My Woman)" are only two more tracks that make this collection an absolute must-have CD.
