AllMusic Review by

Twenty tracks and hardly a clinker among 'em, it features three selections from Reno And Smiley, including the touching "Christmas Reunion." Mac Wiseman turns in a fine version of "Christmas Time's A-Coming" and The Stanley Brothers contribute two, with outstanding harmonies on "Beautiful Star of Bethlehem." Hylo Brown's "Christmas in the Hills" is a lively banjo and vocal romp and Jimmy Martin does a spirited bluegrass instrumental of "Jingle Bells" as well as a couple of vocal cuts, "Old Fashioned Christmas" and "To Mother at Christmas." Lulu Belle and Scotty have two songs, including "The Empty Christmas Stocking."
