    Elvis' excellent first Christmas album, "Elvis' Christmas Album," looms so large in the public psyche that it is hard to fairly judge this album, but taken on its own terms,"Elvis Sings The Wonderful World Of Christmas" is a fine collection that would be a welcome addition to any Elvis fan's stocking. This release includes a number of seasonal standards ("O Come, All Ye Faithful," "The First Noel," and "Winter Wonderland") as well as newer songs such as "On a Snowy Christmas Night" and the title track. The highlights of the album are a gritty six minute version of Charles Brown's hit "Merry Christmas Baby" and the version of "Blue Christmas" Elvis performed on his comeback television special.
