Cliff Richard showed the world he could do Christmas music when he released Little Town in the early eighties. Since then, the British legend has been churning out the Yuletide hits, all with a touch of sythnesied pop goodness!

Cliff Richard Christmas Albums

Together

1991: Together

This album sees Cliff Richard’s first holiday hit Little Town (a reworking of the traditional carol O Little Town of Bethlehem) joined by twelve other Christmas classics. Richard puts his own stamp on all the well known tracks- and a couple of more obscure songs- giving them bubble gum synth backing and a healthy dose of his legendary silky croon. Despite the uniform treatment of all the songs, the album still manages to produce a variety of different moods- from the sit by the fire and drink feel of White Christmas to a rendition of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas that will have you up and dancing in no time.

The Whole Story

2001: The Whole Story

As the title suggests, this three-disc album features a broad selection of Cliff Richard’s music, though there are a few Christmas gems thrown into the mix. Perhaps the most memorable is the charity single The Millennium Prayer, in which Richard sings the words of the Lord’s Prayer to the tune of Auld Lang Syne. The single was canned by critics, but that didn’t stop it reaching number one on the British Christmas singles chart. Other holiday tracks that feature on the album include Mistletoe and Wine and Saviour’s Day.

Cliff at Christmas

2003: Cliff at Christmas

Cliff Richard combines some of the favourites from his previous holiday album with a bunch of newly recorded Christmas hits. Some of the older tracks are remixed in this album, while others, like Little Town are digitally remastered in their original form. A delightful mixture of old and new, the album serves as a great illustration of Richard’s stellar career and reminds us we could all use a little Cliff at Christmas!
