Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The follow up to the original, this collection in many ways surpasses the initial effort. Duets seem to rule here, with Cyndi Lauper and Frank Sinatra double teaming on "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," while the irrepressible Ronnie Spector shares the mic with Darlene Love for a resplendent "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," and Heart's Ann and Nancy Wilson give "Blue Christmas" a steamy and sizzling once-over. Vanessa Williams stops the disc, though, with her simple yet stunning rendition of "What Child Is This." The then-sign-of-the-times inclusion, Michael Bolton, offers a forgettable "White Christmas," but it's the only real clunker in the bunch. Always just a tad too country to make it as a cross-over artist, Randy Travis still makes "Jingle Bell Rock" his own in his smooth way. --Steve Gdula

Jon Bon Jovi does an excellent cover of the Eagles classic Please come home for Christmas.
Peter Durward Harris
These tracks will endure like the rest of the good ones, and it's well worth getting for your Christmas collection!

The result is a very good collection that should find its way to your CD player come December.

I received this CD as a gift and put it away. I was asked to bring some music over for a holiday party my friends were giving. I put it one as an after-thought and to my dis-belief people stopped talking and started listening to some of the tracks. There are some great duets in this version and it is well worth having. Now my friends borrow it all the time. The sounds are refrshing and put a new spin on the old holiday songs. I am going to buy the other CD's in the series as well.

When you release a Christmas Song that is good, you can make your mark on the music industry for years to come - especially when the Holiday Season comes around in December. The 1987 release, "A Very Special Christmas" would take some of the biggest stars in the music industry, have them record some Christmas songs, and then release a CD where the proceeds would go to a charity. This would become a big success. As a result, in 1992 a second CD was made that would continue the momentum of the first CD. This sequel, "A Very Special Christmas 2" would do a lot of the same as the original - take a combination of Classic Christmas Songs, some new spins on some old Classics, some live songs, and some original Christmas songs. The result is a very good collection that should find its way to your CD player come December.

"A Very Special Christmas 2" doesn't quite have as strong a lineup of artists that the first CD had, but it is not short on quality. Even though I am not a fan of all of the artists, there are some that surprise me with their contributions. This collection delivers 19 songs and most of them are pretty good. While the original "A Very Special Christmas" had only two original songs, this CD delivers 4 original songs as well as 5 of what I would classify as "Modern Remakes". The best way to look at this collection is to review each of the songs. Another strength is that this collection brings a solid set of studio musicians who also help contribute.

"Christmas All Over Again" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: This is one of the original songs. I actually am disappointed with this song as I don't think its that great a song, nor do I think it brings out the best in Petty. However, this is an original song.

Format: Audio CD
The first volume of A very special Christmas was incredible, but this follow-up is just as good and even more eclectic. Now, I have wide musical tastes but I can't believe there are too many people who enjoy listening to Randy Travis (singing Jingle bell rock here) and also enjoy the music of Run DMC (rapping Christmas is). Country and rap just do not mix, even though the Bellamy brothers once recorded a song called Country rap - it was a good try but didn't really work. And even if you are in the minority that enjoy both Randy Travis and Run DMC, will you also enjoy Michael Bolton, Debbie Gibson and everything else here? Probably not. In my case, I can tolerate one rap track for the sheer brilliance and diversity of the rest of this collection.
Tom Petty sets the standard with the opening track, Christmas all over again. Darlene Love, one of the stars of the Phil Spector Christmas album, reminds us all how Christmas rock music really began, here to be heard singing a cover of Rocking around the Christmas tree. Bonnie Raitt and Charles Brown bring a touch of the blues to the collection with their rendition of Merry Christmas baby. Santa Claus is coming to town features Cyndi Lauper and Frank Sinatra, though this is not a true duet - Cyndi's vocals were overdubbed on Frank's original recording. Jon Bon Jovi does an excellent cover of the Eagles classic Please come home for Christmas.
There are so many superb songs here, brilliantly performed. It may not be possible to like every track, but if you enjoy most of them (I enjoyed almost all of them), their quality will more than make up for the others.

Volume 2 fits right in with a great series of Christmas music. Most tracks are fun to listen to and its a great CD for Christmas parties. Tevin Campbell's O Holy Night is excellent and stands out. The first 3 tracks (Petty, Travis, and Vandross) are great leadoffs. Sinatra and Cyndi Lauper's Santa Claus is Coming to Town is also fun.

I have a LOT of Christmas albums. Lots and lots. The Very Specials are probably my favorite of all of them. So sincere and original! Even the traditional carols seem to be fresh and exciting. I have all three original "Very Specials" (4 is songs from these done live) and though 2 is my least favorite, it still tops most of my other Christmas albums. Maybe not "Claymation Christmas" though -- that one rules just for "Joy to the World". Very good.

This album is good, but it isn't quite the classic that the first Very Special Christmas is. The highlight is definitely the opening song by Tom Petty. The rest of the album is somewhat uneven. While there are some fine performances by the likes of Sinead O'Conner, Ronnie Spector and Darlene Love, there are also a few lame performances by people like Jon Bon Jovi, Michael Bolton and Extreme. One of the oddities here is a "duet" between Frank Sinatra and Cyndi Lauper. They actually just used an old vocal by Frank from 1947 and added Cyndi's voice to it. In an interesting side note, they originally tried to have Paula Adbul do the duet, but she was unable to hit the right notes. The only artist here that is repeated from the the first Very Special Christmas is Run-D.M.C., but the song they do here is far inferior to the classic "Christmas in Hollis". Overall it's a decent Christmas album, and if you are a fan of the performers featured on it, I would recommend it.
