This holiday effort from the former Lawrence Welk Show star is pretty good as far as these things go. Although not as epochal as Phil Spector's A CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR YOU or THE BEACH BOYS CHRISTMAS ALBUM, Anderson strikes a balance between obvious selections ("Jingle Bell Rock," "Frosty the Snowman," Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer") and unusual ones ("Ding-a-Ling the Christmas Bell"). The album is also an example of the prevailing let's-not-sound-too-country ethos of late-'60s Nashville.
