Merry Christmas

by: The Supremes

Christmas albums are usually done to appease recording artists who have had some success; they rarely sell well because the holiday season is short, but some disprove the stereotype and sell seemingly forever -- like this one. The Supremes put their warm harmonies on 12 classic Christmas songs, everything from "White Christmas" to a rousing "Joy to the World." Diana Ross' angelic, sweet, innocent voice is a perfect match for favorites like "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town." A trio of producers contributed to make this an unforgettable classic: Hal Davis, Harvey Fuqua (Moonglows), and Marc Gordon (who later managed the 5th Dimension). Unlike the Temptations, who recorded three Christmas albums, the Supremes only waxed one. ~ Andrew Hamilton
