John Denver & The Muppets, A Christmas Together
Label: Windstar Productions

Many have tried to sing with the Muppets. It's tougher than it sounds.

No. 1, no matter who you are, you won't be as charismatic as your co-star. Recall the tendency of reporters interviewing Henson and Kermit to put the mic in front of Kermit (Carson did it a couple of times). That, boys and girls, is star power.

Number two, it takes a certain kind of voice to make it work. Generations of pop stars have… read more »

One of the best Christmas Albums EVER!

beaglesayarf

The Muppets, and one of their many human friends, John Denver put together an excellent album for the holidays. It hasn't aged in all these years, and that's saying something! It's an old friend, now, like the Andy Williams Christmas Album, or the Dean Martin Christmas album. Why has it lasted? Because it still conveys the warmth that the season brings with just the right touch of humor and harmony. I remember seeing a sequel to this, but I never got the chance to listen to it after I found it, then lost it. So, this remains the Best! Get it B 4 Xmas!

A Christmas Together

EMUSIC-028644B6

Perhaps the best classic Christmas album for Generation X, the John Denver singalong with the Muppets hits all the memories most of Gen-X treasures from the 70s and early 80s. It contains both traditional Christmas carols and some lesser-known ones that nonetheless are beautifully handled. It has all the trademark Muppets humor in asides and commentary during songs, yet retains the earnestness, sentimentality, and wholesomeness most of us associate with the Muppets and Denver himself. Denver is in top form here, and adds a solid strong voice for many of the Muppets to play against (because, let's face it, it's really hard to sing well when you're voicing a stuffed puppet). Nonetheless, it's a classic for everyone, and something many of us still love to hear at Christmas time, even going on four decades later. It's a must-have for anyone under 50, and would be criminal for any parent to miss playing for their children of any age.

They Say All Music Guide

The Crown Prince of Christmas Specials, John Denver, probably did his best Yuletide work with the Muppets. There is some great fun here, particularly for kids, although the TV special has aged a little faster than most of the Muppet material. The songs use electric piano far too much, and have a kind of dated sentimentality about them, but they are entertaining nonetheless. The Muppets’ loud rendition of “Little St. Nick” and Miss Piggy’s folky “Christmas is Coming” are lively fun. Two or three of the quieter songs achieve a sort of poignant fireside prettiness (especially “It’s In Every One of Us”). Denver is typically over-earnest, even when surrounded by talking animals, but younger listeners won’t mind. – Darryl Cater
