EDITORS’ NOTES

This Christmas stocking is stuffed with goodies plucked from Sinatra's Capitol-era holiday albums. The Jimmy Joyce Singers lend a velvety backdrop to "Whatever Happened to Christmas?", while barbershop harmonizing enlivens "Jingle Bells" and bright strings balance elegant phrasing on "Mistletoe and Holly"; the jazzy bounce of a ‘50s TV performance of “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” is pure bliss. Sinatra's voice is the best gift of all: Few other singers radiate the warmth he brings to the timeless "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."
