This Christmas collection by "Whispering Bill" Anderson features several original songs as well as some Chritmas chestnuts, all rendered in Anderson's trademark laid-back style. His band, The Po' Folks, provide everything from twangy fiddle-and-dobro backed harmonies for "Christmas Time's A-Comin'" to gentle guitar and mandolin sounds on "Joy to the World."
