Sony Music Special Products' Happy Holidays contains ten Christmas classics from the Columbia vaults. Apart from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's "Silent Night, Holy Night," all of the featured tracks are in the traditional pop and vocal pop vein, which gives the album a nice sense of cohesion. And since it contains cuts by Rosemary Clooney, Johnny Mathis, Robert Goulet, Andy Williams, Julie Andrews, Tony Bennett, Engelbert Humperdinck, Doris Day and Ray Conniff, the collection turns out to be a first-class budget-line disc.
