Special Christmas Collection features the Platters performing 12 holiday favorites. Most of the songs are longtime favorites such as "White Christmas," "Deck the Halls," "Silver Bells," and "Silent Night." This emphasis on well-known holiday songs should please traditionalists; however, it also makes this album rather plain and predictable. The Platters attempt to make the songs sound novel, though their efforts aren't very fruitful.
