Steve & Eydie Christmas Music - That Holiday Feeling

NOTE: It was sad to see the loss of Eydie Gorme. A big pop star of her own, she was the wife of pop star Steve Lawrence. Eydie passed away in August 2013 and if you go here, you can listen to Steve sing about his wife and also see a photo tribute :

Now this Christmas, we won't have Eydie, but we do have their legacy - their music.

Although Steve was not a Christian, his wife was and so back in 1964 they released a Christmas album which features them singing duets and solo. The album is called "That Holiday Feeling" and some years ago (90's?) the CD also included a bonus track (Baby, It's Cold Outside - the best version you will ever hear).

I loved listening to this record since I was a kid. The orchestration was great, Steve sings his heart out and Eydie pours out her more soulful vibes. Here is an album that not only delivered great Christmas season music but presented songs done deeply in love. Listening to the duets, you realize this is about two people in love and having a good time, sharing a life together. Is it no wonder why my wife and I always loved singing along and over-playing these songs. So, not only is this a Christmas album, it's a love song album.

Steve and Eydie were married for 55 years and this Christmas CD captures the bond that kept them together. Not many female singers come close to Eydie's prowess these days, and Steve's voice is unmatched, he in the league of Sinatra, Crosby and Como.

The album is nostalgic, yet rarely played on adult contemporary radio. That's too bad - I've got my CD and we play it every Christmas.
