These are some of the most familiar songs ever written; they've been recorded by just about everybody who has ever stepped up to a microphone. It's easy to take them for granted as they're played on TV, over the radio, in shopping malls, and in elevators every December, year after year.
Doris Day revives and restores this material. Her voice, like a cozy fire, has a sensual sweetness that conjures the Christmas experience at its best. Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, and Jack Frost nipping at your toes are tangible when Day's perfect tones set the "Christmas Song" aglow. Her tenderness and perfect pitch make her the ultimate Christmas caroler. You may have heard these songs countless times, but Doris Day makes them glitter as few others can.
