The first great Holiday album from Patti Page – a mid 50s Mercury album that brought together a host of seasonal recordings made by the singer – most of which show a side of Patti that's a bit different than her hits! Page's vocals here have a straight, expressive feel – respectful to the material, and a lot less likely to move into gimmicky pop moments – a vibe that's right up there with Rosemary Clooney at the same time, especially in the way that Patti's got this warm glow to her presentation of the lyrics. The music is somewhat overlooked, both in the Christmas cannon and in Page's own catalog – which makes it a nice discovery, too. Titles include "The First Noel", "Jingle Bell
s", "Silent Night", "Pretty Snowflakes", "Christmas Choir", "I Wanna Go Skating With Willie", "Where Did My Snowman Go", and "Christmas Bell
s". CD features bonus tracks, too – including "Little Donkey", "Boogie Woogie Santa Claus", "Home For The Holidays", "The Christmas Song", and a special "Christmas Greetings From Patti".
