The I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm volume in the Holiday Legends series compiles ten holiday classics in the vocal pop style. Don't expect Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" or Nat "King" Cole's "The Christmas Song"; they're not here. Instead, you get vocal pop legends like Dean Martin ("I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm"), Johnny Mercer ("Winter Wonderland"), and Peggy Lee ("The Christmas Spell"). General audiences probably won't be overly familiar with these vocalists and even more likely not familiar with these renditions. Anyone with a fairly schooled knowledge of classic vocal pop, though, knows these vocalists are some of the best the style has to offer. This volume indeed illustrates their talents as these vocalists offer some less traditional holiday songs that better showcase their vocal prowess. So even if this is sure to be one of the less popular volumes in the Holiday Legends series due to the relative obscurity of the material, it's still one of the more impressive volumes.
