"Merry Christmas" is by far one of the most compelling Christmas releases ever made. Combining old-fashioned holiday standards ("Silver Bells", ""The Little Drummer Boy", "White Christmas") with fun holiday favorites ("Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer", "Santa Clause Is Coming To Town", "Joy To The World"), this record is a beautiful representation of the holiday spirit.
The instrumentation is pure Christmas-esque and the ladies' vocals evoke the joy of the holiday season. In addition to the nostalgic sounds, the record includes some incredible Motown originals: "My Christmas Tree", a tearful, heartfelt ballad filled with longing; "Little Bright Star", an excellent song in the classic Motown tradition, and the albums sole single "Twinkle Twinkle Little Me". In addition, 4 previously unavailable tracks are featured, including the unreleased "Noel" and Flo Ballard's gospel-esque "Silent Night", featuring her upfront on a rare occassion. This long-overdue re-release is an absolute MUST for anyone who wants a holiday collection.
The Supremes - Twinkle Twinkle Little Me
Such a pretty song. I for years have always loved the Supremes Motown Christmas album. I play it every year. The best.
