Nearly 35 years into their recording career, Daryl Hall & John Oates finally released their first full-length Christmas album. In addition to presenting a re-recorded version of "Jingle Bell Rock," a 1980s hit for the pop/soul duo, Hall & Oates offer up a delicate, acoustic version of "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear" and a breezy, jazz-tinged reading of "The Christmas Song," making for an engaging and celebratory holiday collection.
