Collectables Records' various-artists compilation The Ultimate Christmas Album has been released both on its own and as a tie-in with a series of radio stations. There are identical editions of the album associated with KLUV, K-Earth 101 FM, and WCBS FM-101.1 in addition to this version, WJMK 104.3 Chicago. The word "ultimate" has been overused and misused in record releases to the point that it doesn't mean very much to see it on the cover of an album. Whether or not one considers this album to justify its title will have a lot to do with individual musical taste. If the potential consumer is a listener to one of the radio stations listed above, which are oldies stations devoted to playing pop/rock music of the 1950s, '60s, and '70s, he or she may agree that the album is the ultimate in holiday music of that period. Collectables has taken the trouble to license tracks from all of the major record labels except BMG, along with some minor ones, and several big holiday hits are included, among them Brenda Lee's "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," Bobby Helms' "Jingle Bell Rock," Jimmy Boyd's "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," Gene Autry's "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," Alvin & the Chipmunks' "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)," and the Harry Simeone Chorale's "The Little Drummer Boy." In addition, performers close to the hearts of pop/rock fans appear, including Stevie Wonder, the Drifters, Connie Francis, Diana Ross & the Supremes, Frankie Lymon, Chuck Berry, Dion, Fats Domino, the Four Seasons, and the Temptations. But can an album claim to be the ultimate Christmas collection without including Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" or Nat King Cole's "The Christmas Song," to mention only two? No, it cannot. Call this one "The Ultimate Baby Boomer's Christmas Album."

William Ruhlmann, All Music Guide

I've been listening to WCBS-FM for decades now; and the Christmas music they play every year at holiday time is nothing but the best! This is the first in a nice set of six CDs; and every song on this album is a winner! The quality of the sound is excellent and I like the artwork.

Brenda Lee starts things off with her fantastic "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree;" this still sounds great after all these years and Brenda's voice is as clear as a bell! The backup vocalists enhance the number but they never steal the spotlight from Brenda! The music fits in perfectly with her vocals, too. Bobby Helms' "Jingle Bell Rock" is a tune I always love; and there's yet another gem in "What Christmas Means to Me" by Stevie Wonder. I love it! In addition, there's "White Christmas" by The Drifters; they do this with panache; their arrangement for "White Christmas" is sublime and "White Christmas" by The Drifters is a memorable number.

Another highlight of this album would have to be "Merry Merry Christmas Baby" by Margo Sylvia; and Jimmy Boyd's treatment of "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" is a classic I could never forget–this music is all THAT good! The chorus harmonizes sweetly, too. Diana Ross & The Supremes do a fine job on "Silver Bells;" they perform this to perfection–and beyond! "It's Christmas Once Again" by Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers is very poignant; and Gene Autry's "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" leaves nothing to be desired. Another number that more than makes the grade is the rocking, positively electric "Run Rudolph Run" by the great Chuck Berry. "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)" always brings a smile to my face; and The O'Jays make "Christmas Ain't Christmas (Without the One You Love)" a really special song.

The Harry Simeone Chorale performs "Little Drummer Boy" most passionately; and The Four Seasons do a terrific job on "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town." "This Christmas" is yet another big highlight of the CD thanks to the genius of Donny Hathaway; and listen for "Christmas Serenade" by Bobby Maestro. Bobby really does this one up right! The Temptations deliver "Silent Night" with a lot of style; and it all holds its own very well. How's about that music for The Temptations' "Silent Night?" The CD ends with "Another Lonely New Year's Eve" by Jimmy Beaumont; Jimmy sings this very well and it leaves me wanting more!

This excellent album of music featured on WCBS-FM every year at holiday time really showcases the talent of quite a few gifted artists; and hearing these songs brings back great memories for me. I recommend this album for listeners of WCBS-FM; and anyone who enjoys high quality control holiday music from a not so distant past would do well to get this album.
