Album Review

More than a decade into his career, Johnny Tillotson's voice had improved noticeably, and this MGM Christmas LP — it followed his final major hit, "Heartaches By the Number" — is a surprisingly good effort of light MOR pop. The arrangements aren't revolutionary but clean and well-played, and Tillotson's voice is like crystal over these light shadings of guitar and female chorus. Highlights include an interesting place-dropping version of "(There's No Place Like) Home for the Holidays," as well as a pair of his own compositions: "It's Not Christmas If You're Not Here" and "Christmas Is the Best of All." (The LP's 1996 reissue on CD added an excellent bonus track, a version of Willie Nelson's "Pretty Paper.")

Pop/rock singer and songwriter Johnny Tillotson enjoyed his greatest success in the early '60s when he scored a series of Top Ten hits including "Poetry in Motion" and the self-penned "It Keeps Right on a-Hurtin'." In total, he placed 30 singles and LPs in the Billboard charts between 1958 and 1984, most of them in the pop charts, though he also reached the country, R&B, and easy listening charts. His string of hits allowed him to establish a performing career both in the U.S. and around the world...
