AllMusic Review by

Despite its poor sound quality and shoddy packaging, Hollywood's Rhythm & Blues Christmas is an entertaining 20-track collection of familiar R&B Christmas numbers, including Charles Brown's "Merry Christmas Baby," Freddie King's "Christmas Tears," Bill Doggett's "Joy to the World" and Hank Ballard's "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town." It's not perfect, but it's quite enjoyable and worth its budget price.
