Christmas with Peggy Lee Review

by Al Campbell

Christmas with Peggy Lee is a fine collection of laid-back jazzy holiday favorites performed by the sultry vocalist. The majority of this material was taken from her 1960 Capitol release Christmas Carousel, excluding three tracks: "The Christmas List," "Christmas Riddle," and "Deck the Halls." Traditional tunes like "Winter Wonderland," "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," "The Christmas Song," and "I Like a Sleighride (Jingle Bells)" get the relaxing and warm treatment provided by the vocalist in her prime. Also of interest are the four tracks penned by Lee, "Christmas Carousel," "Don't Forget to Feed the Reindeer," "The Tree," and "My Dear Acquaintance (A Happy New Year)." This is perfect background music for any Christmas get-together.
