One of the truly great Christmas albums gets the expanded/remastered treatment. Emmylou Harris possesses the voice of an angel, so it only makes sense that her versions of Christmas classics are unequaled, as are special guests Willie Nelson, Neil Young, and Dolly Parton. Harris recorded three new tracks for this disc, including a wonderful new song from the McGarrigle Sisters, "Man Is an Island."
