Christmas wouldn’t be complete without this joyous holiday album, released in 1965 but timeless. It has recently come to light that despite the cover photo and credit, this isn’t truly from The Supremes as neither Florence Ballard nor Mary Wilson appear on any tracks; rather, Diana Ross is backed by Motown session singers The Andantes.

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. 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.
