AllMusic Review by

St. Clair's R&B Christmas: The Gold Collection contains 20 songs that will appeal to fans of '50s and '60s soul. There's a nice balance between the familiar and the relatively rare, and most everything included is either romantic or spiritual in nature. The Miracles' "We Three Kings," Brook Benton's "You'll All I Want for Christmas," the Platters' "Deck the Halls," Jerry Butler's "O Holy Night," the Drifters' "Auld Lang Syne," and Charles Taylor's "Joy to the World" highlight this disc, which would make for an enjoyable addition to anyone's Christmas music collection. Unlike a lot of Yuletide-themed compilations, this one was put together with a good deal of thought.
