Music Review: Linda Ronstadt: A Merry Little Christmas

A Merry Little Christmas, Linda Ronstadt, Elektra Music Corp., 2000.
Linda Ronstadt does a tremendous job of covering a few of our Christmas favorites, and also some that aren't so familiar.  Linda does all the lead vocals, but she is joined by a couple other choirs, form form Tucson and one form Los Angeles.  She covers a Joni Mitchell song entitled "River."  This song is very meaningful and makes you think about your Christmas habits.  The theme is "I wish I had a river I could skate away on."  Sometimes we feel that way.  This includes the classic title song, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "The Christmas Song."  The version of "Away in a Manger" is different, but still alive and energetic.  I enjoyed this music.
