iTunes Review

The 13-year-old star who'd later be known as "Little Miss Dynamite" recorded the irresistible title track for this holiday-themed anthology in 1958, and its jubilant rock 'n' roll perk hasn't aged a day since.

The career-spanning collection follows Lee as she develops into a mature country singer with a knack for compelling storytelling and heartbreaking balladry ("Christmas Will Be Just Another Lonely Day").

One of the biggest pop stars of the early '60s, Brenda Lee hasn't attracted as much critical respect as she deserves. She is sometimes inaccurately characterized as one of the few female teen idols. More crucially, the credit for achieving success with pop-country crossovers usually goes to Patsy Cline, although Lee's efforts in this era were arguably of equal importance. While she made few recordings of note after the mid-'60s, the best of her first decade is fine indeed, encompassing not just the...
