The picture on the CD has Allen in front of a log fire and I think this well reflects the warm nostalgic yuletide feeling the veteran hoped to engender. The album offers 16 songs including much loved oldies like "Pretty Paper", "Silver Bells" and rounding off with "Silent Night". The backing is straight country with plenty of steel guitar and fiddle and Allen's crooned vocals suit the material very well. It's probably not the most outstanding country Christmas album I have heard but it has its moments.
