Product Description

Amazon.ca

The title doesn't lie, even if it does sounds like a hyperbolic pitch from an old late-night cable TV ad. With 36 tracks of various genres spread over two discs, Now That's What I Call Christmas might be the best, most eclectic "value-plus" holiday record ever released, assuming your tastes embrace crooners such as Cole, Crosby, and Como, plus contemporary boy bands such as Boyz II Men, as well as the ubiquitous Britney Spears.

In between there are the sumptuous classics by Bobby Helms, Brenda Lee, the Beach Boys, Elvis, and Burl Ives on disc one, balanced on disc two by more recent standards, including Bruce Springsteen's live version of "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town" and John and Yoko's "Happy Xmas (War is Over)." You're not obligated to like everything here, but that's why Santa invented the forward button on your CD player. --Martin Keller

Did you see what is listed in this compilation? Better yet you HAVE heard them just never all in the same place.
There is really no need to get any other entire Christmas cd if yoiu have this one. There are the very best songs by the artists you remember the songs by - for example: The Christmas Song only Nat King Cole can do this the way we always remember it. How about? Bing Crosby - White Christmas; or Blue Christmas - Elvis Presly; - Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas - Frank Sinatra; Winter Wonderland - Tony Bennett; Sleigh Ride - Ella Fitzgerald; Let It Snow - Dean Martin; Home For The Holidays - Perry Como; It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year - Johnny Mathis; and Have A Holly Jolly Christmas - Burl Ives.
Then there are the more modern day pop Christmas classics like - Santa Claus Is Coming To Town - Bruce Springsteen; Do They Know It's Christmas - Band Aid; Wonderful Christmastime - Paul McCartney; It Must Have Been Old Santa - Harry Connick Jr.; Jingle Bells - Diana Krall; Away In A Manger - Mannheim Steamroller; Deck The Halls - Ottmar Liebert; Happy Christmas (War Is Over) - John Lennon; and
Don't Save It All For Christmas Day - Celine Dion
There are so many great artists on these two discs (the only two I thought were most noticeably missing are Jose Feliciano and Mariah Carey) you'll be thrilled to only need these two for an efficient but indulgent Christmas music collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Holiday Collection Nov. 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
A few years ago, I went through my CD collection and realized that I have more Christmas CD's than I could possibly listen to on Christmas day, but I always thought my collection was lacking certain pieces. I was missing many of the songs we hear on the radio, that have become so much a part of Christmas. Many of the tracks I wanted are on albums I probably would not otherwise purchase. For example, take the humorous "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer." I mean, many people can get a chuckle when listening to the song, but do people really want to buy the Elmo and Patsy Christmas CD? Are either Bobby Helms or Brenda Lee's recordings available? Yet "Jingle Bell Rock" and "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree" are part of our pop Christmas culture. This collection has many of the pop standards as well as other favorites by artists such as Bing Crosby, Gene Autry, Perry Como, and a host of others. The recoding can be a bit haunting as well, when we hear musicians such as Bing Crosby sing his duet with David Bowie "Peace on Earth," or the voices of Karen Carpenter and John Lennon. This collection will be great for holiday parties or to listen to while getting the tree decorated. While it may not highlight the spiritual meaning of the season, it is fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome compilation... Nov. 14 2003
By Danny
Format:Audio CD
Well, it's that time of year again, folks. Time to take a hammer to that piggy bank and go nuts with a little holiday spirit. Don't you just love it? Speaking of holiday spirit, this is the perfect CD to get you in the mood for Christmas. Whether you're wrapping presents, taking a trip in your car to go shopping or just plain relaxing by the fire, there's nothing better to set you in that magical Christmas mood than this compilation.
You may as well call the entire first CD a classic. Every song is a Christmas staple, most notably Nat King Cole's "the Christmas Song" and Bing Crosby's "White Christmas," which kick off the compilation with a bang. The 16 songs that follow reek of Christmas nostalgia. Absolutely perfect.
The second CD, however, is a little uneven. Oh, sure, you have a few truly great Christmas tunes; most notably John & Yoko's "Happy Xmas," Band Aid's "Do They Know It's Christmas?," Luther Vandross's "O Come All Ye Faithful," Bruce Springsteen's rockin' "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town" and Boyz II Men's wonderful a cappella rendition of "Silent Night." There's a few other great songs, but these are my favorites. What nearly ruins the flow of this otherwise pretty good disc are the newer songs. Sorry, folks, but these just don't get me the way the other ones do.
But, oh well. I'd be lying if I said this wasn't an overall excellent compilation. Why let a few rotten apples spoil a bunch, right? As I said before, it's perfect to get you into the holiday spirit. Highly recommended.
