On their first studio recording since 1982's More Than Dancing, Daryl Dragon and Toni Tennille make good on a longtime promise to fans with a collection of holiday cuts that's every bit as kitschy, playful, and harmless as the bulk of the music from their mid-'70s heydays. The 14-track Secret of Christmas finds Captain & Tennille in good form, lending their well-honed soft rock style to yuletide classics like "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," "Here Comes Santa Claus," and "Silent Night," but it's Toni's four self-penned offerings that make this Secret so sticky sweet. "Tahoe Snow," "Christmas in California," "Boogie Baby Christmas," and "The Christmas Star" sound exactly like the titles would suggest. They're alternately goofy, sentimental, and reverent, which is more than can be said for most holiday offerings, and while her voice may lack the presence that made "Love Will Keep Us Together" and "Muskrat Love" so instantly infectious, it's impossible not to smile along with her.
Toni Tennille wrote several of the tunes on this cd, including the fun "Boogie Baby Christmas". You can't help but smile hearing that hippopotamus song! A refreshing collection of traditional holiday music and originals. Don't miss "Little Saint Nick", where all of Toni's sisters lend their talents!

They haven't recorded in years-having them back after all that time is wonderful! The CD is joyful and fun. A real Holiday treat.
Songs of Joy By Cruise1213
I grew up on the Captain and Tennille music. I have most of their sheet music and
still enjoy playing their songs on the piano. To me their music is smooth, joyful, and
very relaxing. I still listen to it when driving to work, and returning home from work.
I would love to see them one more time in concert. If any one wants a good collection
of their music, get Songs of Joy.
