If you're looking for a traditional Christmas album of old favorites, then look no further.
Canadian country legend Anne Murray delivers fifteen warm and fuzzy songs for the yuletide season, ten of them from previous albums and five previously unreleased tracks.
The new tracks are:
Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree Jingle Bell Rock Blue Christmas Baby it's Cold Outside (with Michael Buble) Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas (with Diana Krall)
Murray puts a country spin on the songs, but the difference is more in the instruments than in the vocals. Simple, subtle and stunning intros and bridges complement that famously timeless voice, making for the perfect album for opening gifts on Christmas morning (providing you were nice, of course - naughty children won't need this album this year)
Anne Murray has six other Christmas albums, and her latest doesn't disappoint. If you're looking for a new album of traditional material, then this is the album to put you in the mood for eggnog and mistletoe.
