AllMusic Review by

This is a kitschy collection of Christmas songs sung by Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby. Since no liner notes are included, it's difficult to know where these songs came from. From the sound of it (and the sound quality is mediocre) they were lifted from movie soundtracks and radio broadcasts.

The first six tracks are from a Crosby/Sinatra movie. Dialogue and background music are all left in--it's kind of like watching TV with a blown out tube. Bing and Frank end up with a group of carolers and all together they sing "Deck The Halls," "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" and "O Come All Ye Faithful."

The best track on the compilation (also from the movie?) is Sinatra singing "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear." The strangest is when Bing (a radio broadcast?) persuades his kids to sing a song called, "The Snowman."
