AllMusic Review by

Here is a superb collection of old-fashioned Christmas favorites sung by legendary entertainers such as Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and Louis Armstrong. The record opens with the calm and serene "Silent Night," an original version sung by Crosby with a special radio address attached to the end. The Charioteers bring life and spirit to the season with Crosby in the charismatic "Jingle Bells." Vibrant and engaging, each of these tunes merits an attentive listen. These melodies provide fun and laughter and the perfect atmosphere to any person's Christmas engagement. Other tunes such as "I'll Be Home for Christmas" and "White Christmas" assist the listener in reminiscing wonderful memories of Christmas past. The unmistakable "Joy to the World" has a certain vintage flair to its underlying message. Armstrong lights up the room with the jazzy and fun-loving "Zat You Santa Claus." This is a beautiful record that is certain to create new memories and help in building a fun Christmas season for all.
