The husband-and-wife duo of Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme were firmly established as one of the best traditional pop acts in the United States when they recorded this lush Christmas offering for Columbia Records in 1964. On That Holiday Feeling!, Steve and Eydie deliver solid solo performances -- Gorme on "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "White Christmas," Lawrence with "Let Me Be the First to Wish You Merry Christmas" and "The Christmas Song" -- while they show off the splendid vocal give and take that made them stars on "Sleigh Ride," "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!," and "Baby, It's Cold Outside." Featuring arrangements from some of the best studio men in the business (including Don Costa, Al Cohn, and Patrick Williams), That Holiday Feeling! is a beautifully crafted artifact from the era of great singers, and captures Steve & Eydie at their best. The GL Music reissue includes two bonus tracks.
