Christmas albums are usually done to appease recording artists who have had some success; they rarely sell well because the holiday season is short, but some disprove the stereotype and sell seemingly forever -- like this one. In 1965, the Supremes put their warm harmonies on 12 classic Christmas songs, everything from "White Christmas" to a rousing "Joy to the World." Diana Ross' angelic, sweet, innocent voice is a perfect match for favorites like "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town." A trio of producers contributed to make this an unforgettable classic: Hal Davis, Harvey Fuqua (Moonglows), and Marc Gordon (who later managed the 5th Dimension). Unlike the Temptations, who recorded three Christmas albums, the Supremes only waxed one. [In 2017, Real Gone Music released a two-CD, 50-track remastered edition of the Supremes' 1965 Christmas album entitled The Ultimate Merry Christmas. The set included 16 previously unreleased tracks and 21 other tracks appearing on CD for the first time, including the album's original mono mix as well as tracks with alternate vocals and instrumentation.]
