EDITORS’ NOTES

As with all Christmas albums, the joy is in hearing old favorites sung by a beloved voice, but this isn’t simply an exercise in sentimental nostalgia. There’s a reverent “We Three Kings” in which Stewart and Mary J. Blige recapture the awe and devotion of the star-led travelers, a slinky country take on “Blue Christmas,” and a beatific “Silent Night” that first brings in a children’s choir, then the rest of the family to send it home harmoniously. As an extra-special gift, there’s “Red-Suited Super Man,” a Stewart original in which he swings like his hero Sam Cooke.

Saw It! Heard It! Loved It!

Wow! I had given' up on "Crooner" Rod! BAD Mistake! Just saw, by myself, the TV concert for the first time this Christmas Day. And recorded what was left (10 mins.) for my wife and daughter, who will rue this day they slept in!!!!! He still ROCKS! Every song is terrific.... on its own. Each is a peach. And the a**kicker is "Red-Suited Super Man"! Rock-0n Rod!
