Various - Christmas With the Stars
A weird one. As record companies fill every single nook and cranny with as many compilations as is humanly possible, the 'themes' start to sag a bit. 55 christmas songs not enough for you ? Well, here's 55 songs by STARS, no less ! Not your neighbour or your boss or the woman on the till in Netto who you secretly fancy and you suspect your wife realises so you make an effort not to look at her every time you go in even though that's probably making it even more obvious. Proper stars then. The 'classic' stuff is great. Dean does 'Let it Snow ...', Frank does 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' and Nat pops up all over the place but not with 'The Christmas Song'. Which is weird. Just as weird is some of the tat that acts as padding. Cliff Richard ? Has anyone done more to destroy the Christmas song than Cliffy ? 'Saviour's Day' is the abomination we get here. The likes of Adam Faith, Harry Secombe, Alma Cogan and Roger Whittaker remove most of the alleged starriness and you can't help but think that one disc would have been enough. Hey, buy it for your nan.
