Since caroling is all about harmony and spirit, it's not surprising that Motown's superb array of vocal groups would take to holiday song so perfectly. This generous 25-song helping of Christmas cheer puts the spotlight on fan favorites like the Temptations (who deliver a handful of honey-sweet performances, highlighted by "Silent Night"), Diana Ross & the Supremes (who really soar on "Joy to the World"), and then-adolescent phenoms the Jackson 5 (led by Michael, who turns in a playful performance of "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus"). Interspersed between the traditional songs are some hit-and-miss originals, most performed by Stevie Wonder.

Special Christmas Collection features the Platters performing 12 holiday favorites. Most of the songs are longtime favorites such as "White Christmas," "Deck the Halls," "Silver Bells," and "Silent Night." This emphasis on well-known holiday songs should please traditionalists; however, it also makes this album rather plain and predictable. The Platters attempt to make the songs sound novel, though their efforts aren't very fruitful.

Scooping up tracks from Royant’s seasonal singles and marrying them to newly recorded cuts, Wishing You a Merry Christmas is cool, hip and opens with a swinging cover of “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” drawn from Phil Spector’s 1963 A Christmas Gift for You from Philles Records album. After this, the self-composed (“C'mon Baby) It's Christmas Time!” sets the tone for a ten-tracker which swims in less-obvious waters, even when a song is over familiar.
