Ultimate Christmas [Arista]

While perhaps not living up to the lofty goals of its title, Ultimate Christmas is an excellent holiday sampler nevertheless, compiling classic performances from artists of all eras and musical backgrounds to appeal to as wide an audience as possible. The many highlights include Bing Crosby's "White Christmas," Elvis Presley's "Blue Christmas," Nat King Cole's "The Christmas Song," Judy Garland's "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," and Sarah McLachlan's "Song for a Winter's Night." ~ Marvin Jolly
