Harris' Album of the Month: Ultimate Christmas Collection by Jackson 5

Sorry this is out one day early but tomorrow is a very special day for The Truth About Music as we begin counting down the 110 best songs of the past decade.

Being an American Jew means that I prefer Christmas to Chanukah any day of the week. I happen to love the music of the season and nothing says Christmas more than Christmas albums. One of the best Christmas albums comes from the late Michael Jackson and his Jackson 5. Releases in October of 1970, “Ultimate Christmas Collection” was originally comprised of eleven Christmas classics. In 2009, bonus tracks were released including remixes and unreleased material from the famous five.
The groups style is captured perfectly in these family friendly songs sung in a style that is pure and genuine. Included in the 2009 bonus tracks are greetings from Michael, Jermaine, Jackie and Tito wishing everyone a “Merry Christmas.” To this day I can’t pinpoint what I love about the music of Christmas but it reminds me of a great atmosphere, great movies and perfect company.
I hope that everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving and hope that the Jackson 5 can help you all start your holiday season off right.

    Things just aren’t the same without him.
    A true master of his-art.
    RIP Michael
