This is a great Christmas record, and it has some fine songs. "Good Time Christmas" in particular is lots of fun. Unfortunately, one of the best songs on this album has a major flaw. Track B3, "Christmas Will Really Be Christmas," has a very noticeable squeak or chirp at about the 1:00 minute mark. This noise is either a flaw in the original master tape or a sound that was picked up during the original transfer from the master tape for vinyl cutting. I have the original stereo album and the abridged LP reissue, and it is present on both. Versions of the song from CD reissues of this album and CD compilations of Rawls' Christmas music repeat the flaw. Hopefully one day the album will get a new transfer from the original tape and the noise is corrected.
