For A Musical Christmas

I'm guess this hasn't been re-released on CD since th cover does say "Special Collector's Edition". Does that really mean anything? I don't know.

What I do know is that I love the cover. I kind of wish the cover was just the Santa Jack in the Boxes and the pink block of text was on the back.

The music has a wide array of artists. I enjoy Floyd Cramer's subdued piano work on Silver Bells. The clear winner as the best song is Mary's Little Boy Child by Jim Reeves. The song has a great warm tone to it. Jim's velvet tones tell the story of the first Christmas in a beautiful way. I can listen to this song over and over. This was on my 2003 Christmas mix. Ah the memories. Jingle Bells by The Three Sons is another great cut. It is easy listening bliss. The song features a bunch of musical solos from different instruments, organ, electric keyboard, clarinet, electric guitar etc. The guitar solo is a highlight.
