I don't really care for Christmas albums. They irritate me mostly. So when I find one I like it's amazing. I think the exceptions are June Christy's album, Brenda Lee, and this. Jo Stafford has a lovely relaxing voice in this. I really like her version of Moonlight in Vermont.

First of all it has a wonderful title track. Half the songs are written by her brother Earl and herself. The album cover even suggests something different as she's not wearing a gingham dress but pants. I liked The Day your memory came to town and the upbeat Great Big Hurtin' Heart. This is a solid country album. I wish that Melba Montgomery was more on cd. Like Norma Jean, she's a neglected country singer from the past worth another look.
