For most artists recording a Christmas record is a convenient stop-gap in between releasing new material. In Peter Cetera's case this doesn't ring true as it has been a while since we last heard from one of soft rock's most distinctive crooners. You Just Gotta Love Christmas brings to the table everything you'd expect from a Peter Cetera record: lush, pleasant arrangements with crisp, warm, polished production and able musicanship from a crew of veteran session players. It's a mix of holiday favorites mixed in with a few originals and some guest appearances from Alison Krauss and Peter's daughter Claire; who is more than up to the task of singing with her father on two of the album's 12 tracks. Cetera and Chicago fans will no doubt enjoy having this on in the background during the holidays.
It's the Season in Song!
This album just puts me in a good mood. I love listening to it when I'm surrounded by weekend shoppers at the mall. Peter Cetera's voice and backups easily brings a smile to my over-stressed "it's supposed-to-be-a joyous-time attitude." If you're looking for the season, you just might find it within this album!
I like the original songs, especially the title track. The album is dedicated to his daughters -- a very sweet touch. Nice arrangements. Even traditional songs played ad nauseum during the season have delightful little twists to make them new and fresh again.
Refreshing Christmas Album
A great refreshing Christmas album with beautiful arrangements by Peter. Tired of hearing singers run down Christmas songs with their egos- this is lovely and joyful and captures the essence of Christmas with Peter's amazing signature-xo pam p
