EDITORS’ NOTES

Rod Stewart’s first collection of Christmas favorites is a highlight of his career revival as a balladic stylist, and he croons this set of seasonal standards with amiable sentimentality and loads of character. The roster of guests—Michael Bublé, Trombone Shorty, and Mary J. Blige—speaks to Stewart’s lasting magnetism, and gently swinging chestnuts like “Santa Clause Is Coming To Town,” “Blue Christmas,” and “Winter Wonderland” are performed with finesse. Still, the album's hardest grooving track comes when he sings opposite Cee Lo Green on a soulful cover of the R&B classic “Merry Christmas Baby.”



The track titled "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas - Single" is also available on its own dedicated page. Find this version through search. Certain proceeds from the purchase of this track (which are further explained on that dedicated page, and which is different from purchasing the album version) will benefit the Celtic Charity Fund and Teenage Cancer Trust.
