Product Description

Amazon.ca

Like Bing Crosby's "White Christmas," Nat Cole's "The Christmas Song" stands as one of two or three pillars of holiday music. This collection of songs and greetings includes another technologically induced daughter-father duet on Mel Torme's classic hit as well daddy Cole's 1961 version of the tune. Fans of both Natalie and her dad will put this on the top of their wish lists. Two previously unreleased tracks--"God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman" and "O Come All Ye Faithful"--will prompt a lot of lovers of Christmas music to fall in love again with Cole's incomparable style and timeless voice. --Martin Keller

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Christmas Album Ever Recorded Nov. 19 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Nat King Cole could not record a bad Christmas had he set out to do so.
Known for his recording of "The Christmas Song," Cole sings every other Christmas song just as well as he does that classic. Particulary good are "Cradle in Bethlehem" -- which has an outstanding choral support, "O Little Town of Bethlehem", and "O Tannenbaum." There are only two other Christmas albums that rise to the level of "The Christmas Song": Johnny Mathis' "Merry Christmas" and Alan Jackson's 2002 release: "Let It Be Christmas."
Nat's album gets the nod because he has far more songs (19) on his album than either Mathis or Jackson.
But that's your top three of all-time folks. Sinatra, Crosby, Como, The Carpenters ... all are good, but never really approach Nat King Cole's album when one considers the quality and quantity of the songs on that album.
It's really striking how good it is. And how long is has stood the test of time. He had a voice made for Christmas.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic christmas album Dec 8 2007
Format:Audio CD
I just purchased this CD and listened to it and loved it. Nat King Cole's voice is so smooth and silky and he renders these songs so perfectly. All the classic christmas songs are on here and this album would be great background music for a christmas party. He didn't apply any over-the-top histrionics to the songs - it's just the songs in their original format, sung by a guy with a perfect voice. The CD is also worth the money because it has 20 songs. My favourites are "O Come All Ye Faithful" and "The Christmas Song". As soon as I put the CD in and heard "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire..." I was immediately moved. I also like the lesser-known "A Cradle in Bethlehem" which I used to hear on the radio, when I was growing up. Hearing it brought me back to Christmases past. This CD easily puts you in the Christmas spirit and is just right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect... Nov. 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
At the risk of restating the obvious, let it be said once more -- Nat "King" Cole has a magical voice, adaptable to the ruminations of a Jazz trio, the brassy sass of a Big Band or the celestial delights of a string orchestra. THE CHRISTMAS SONG -- Capitol's CD reissue of Cole's 1961 arrangements (conducted by Ralph Carmichael) -- features the singer's warm baritone set to orchestra and chorus. For all intents-and-purposes, the songs themselves are a stunning listen -- diciplined, personal and romantic.
This reissue features the standard 1961 version of Cole's timeless "The Christmas Story" (written by Mel Torme and Bob Wells); Cole did three other versions prior to the Carmichael take, going as far back as 1946 (the first without a string section). These three versions have not been the reissue standard since '61. However, two other renderings are represented on this CD: [1] another stale cut-n-paste duet with daughter Natelie (MOR radio has Hallmark to thank) and [2] a hidden bonus version, more piano-based, featuring only a small string section (likely the second 1946 version, which was the first "Christmas Song" to chart). In other good news, there's also first-to-CD versions of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" and "O' Come All Ye Faithful" (the latter of which is worth the price of admission alone), plus two King Cole spoken greetings.
My feeling is that no serious music collection should be without a compilation of Nat "King" Cole's Holiday classic. I'm biased, of course, because Cole is my favorite singer, but the music stands on it own as timeless. There are many Christmas-themed CDs available from this artist, but this is as good as any, if not the top so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Christmas song-Nat King Cole Review Sept. 29 2003
Format:Audio CD
By far one of the best albums by Mr.Cole.I highly recommend anyone who likes Nat King Cole to buy this album.I would like to correct a mistake by a previous reviewer who said the album has previously unreleased tracks.All tracks on this cd(with the exception of the duet of Nat and Natalie)were released in 1969 on the LP'The Christmas song'released by Capitol records.

5.0 out of 5 stars A CHRISTMAS CD FOR THE AGES Dec 23 2002
Format:Audio CD
If you only want one CHRISTMAS cd in your collection,you simply must choose this one.NAT and CHRISTMAS are linked together.This cd was beautifully remastered in 1999 and will pass the test of time forever.You may have listened to many CHRISTMAS albums in your lifetime,but very few have this overall quality of singing with a nice display of harmony behind it.What distinguished NAT is his great sensibility that always transpired in his best recordings.You'll want to comeback to it year after year.Only FRANK SINATRA's 1957 offering comes close in matching this classic for the ages.A big mistake for you would be to listen to it alone after many drinks.The tears just might come to you.
