Album Remarks & Appraisals:
"If you could only pick one Christmas CD this season, Tony Bennett's The Classic Christmas Album would be an excellent choice... The first thing you notice is how little Bennett's voice changed as he got older. He sounds just as strong and smooth in 2008 as he did in 1968, and he still sounds flawless on the newly recorded "What Child is This?" Then you notice everything else: the beautiful arrangements, lush music, and the way that Bennett's voice is perfectly suited to Christmas music. It's hip, yet still respectful of tradition... All in all, if The Classic Christmas Album does not put you in the mood, nothing will. It will be the perfect music for all your holiday activities." -BlogCritics.org
