Fine Tunes' The Gold Collection: The Holiday Album -- The Christmas Shows contains a selection of performances given on a variety of radio shows by Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole. The artists don't sing together -- the compilers have assembled a collection of individual performances. There are some good moments on this 13-track collection, but the sound is so poor and the production so shoddy that neither collectors (who would like this material, but in better fidelity and with liner notes) nor casual fans (who would like a budget-priced holiday album from either artist, but one that features clean recordings) will be pleased with this disc.
