      Happy Holidays - Volume 33 CD features a variety of different performers. This is one of those charity albums where a portion of the profits benefit the marine Toys for Tots Foundation. There are twelve tracks in all.

      Judy Collins starts things off with a lovely rendition of Have Yourself a Merry Christmas. This is followed by John Denver doing a traditional version of Jingle Bells. I mention that it’s traditional because he


      has also sung a non-traditional version. This is quite nice to listen to. It’s the carol we know and love and can easily sing along with it.

      After Freddie Jackson’s This Christmas, we get treated to Alabama’s Christmas is Love. This is a delightful tune about the essence of the holiday. I like this one a lot. It has a great lyric and a nice melody. The next song is the Boston ...


      • Pops Orchestra doing the Parade of the Wooden Soldiers.

        More country is in store with Dolly Parton’s Hard Candy Christmas which is also in the film, Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. I love this song. It’s about surviving and moving forward. Even with the title, it’s a bit odd for a holiday song, but the message is a good one anyway. Maybe in this economy, it’s not so odd after all.

        The CD continues with

        songs by Sawyer Brown, Willie Nelson, and Lorrie Morgan before The Temptations do an interpretation of The Little Drummer Boy which is interesting with their particular vocal range. It’s intriguing.

        The final two songs on Happy Holidays - Volume 33 CD come from Elvis Presley and Jim Brickman. Overall, it’s a good mix and there are some interesting song choices, making it unique. I listen to it every year and enjoy it quite a bit.
