Warm 60s television sounds from The King
Family – that copious collection of singers that features the core King
Sisters at the start, then expands to include their kids and most of their other relatives as well! These are the kind of tracks that really take us back to the kind of TV specials that used to warm our hearth during the Holiday season – the kind of unabashedly sentimental renderings of Christmas tunes both secular and spiritual, which always made us feel all warm and safe inside – set to full orchestrations that must have been something massive to pull off in the space of a television studio! As with other King
Family albums, there's a nice variety to the vocals here – mixing full group numbers with smaller ones and some solo moments – on tracks that include "White Christmas", "Caroling Caroling/
Come Dear Children", "Some Children See Him", "What Child Is This", "The Holiday Of Love", and "Hear The Sledges With The Bells". CD also features a huge amount of bonus tracks – many even groovier than the main album cuts – titles that include "Sleigh Ride", "Children Go Where I Send Thee", "The Christmas Song/
The Christmas Waltz", "The Holiday Of Love", "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas", "A Soalin/
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", and a medley of "Twas The Night Before Christmas/
Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" – totally groovy, mod, and worth the price of the CD alone!
