In my humble opinion this is the best Perry Como Christmas album and a favorite in my family. Perry at his best! Perry's later Christmas albums paled due to poor arangements, over-orchestration and Perry overshadowed by backup singers. This album was recorded in the late 1940s when his style and voice were at their best; his vocals are strong and 'centerstage'. NOTE: The song, "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town" was cut when this album was transferred to cassette and later CD. This particular song was covered again for the album "Season's Greetings from Perry Como" but lacked the luster of the original 1946 recording (for reasons stated earlier).
