A year ago I reviewed a different edition of this CD which had three songs missing--"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas", "When the River Meets the Sea", and "Little Saint Nick". It is nice to see that the original complete 13-song version of the album is now available again. Our four children, now ages 14 to 34, all grew up listening to this recording. We own probably 50 Christmas CDs, ranging from classical to jazz to pop. If I could own only one Christmas CD, it would be this one. Exquisitely arranged and recorded, it is a true holiday classic.

This Christmas CD will always have a special place for me. I grew up on the muppets, and the "John Denver and the Muppets: A Christmas Together" TV special was a fond memory. I had this album on LP, and I was excited to get a CD copy.
John Denver and the Muppets do good duty to these Christmas tunes. "The Twelve Days of Christmas" is a showcase, with a different muppet taking each day. Many John Denver originals, like "The Peace Carol," are well suited to the warblers voice. Surprisingly, the muppets are all good singers, and harmonize well with John Denver, even in character.
I am happy to have the full version of this CD, and I cannot recommend this edited 10 song version. To my mind, the standout piece of this album is Rowlf the Dog's "Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas," which is sadly missing. Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem's classic version of
the Beach Boy's "Little Saint Nick" is also missing. Stars deducted for this edited version, otherwise it is a 5-star album.

This album is a wonderful mix of charm and humor (read: the Muppets) and beautiful Christmas caroling (read: John Denver). It really is something you can just listen to and relax by the fire, or just go about your activities with a little bit more to cheer you up in the holiday season. Highly recommended.

I must also add my love of this album to the others listed here. My family watched the Christmas special John Denver and the Muppets a Christmas Together when it originally aired, and caught it every year after that. We also immediately bought the album (back then it was an LP). I was thrilled to discover it on CD. It is one of the first Christmas albums I pull out and one of the last to be put away.
This is one of those rare blends that works beautifully. John Denver's beautiful and clear voice with the delightful Muppets. Every song is a gem from the opening 12 Days of Christmas (I still laugh every time I hear Beaker sing). The next duet of John Denver and Rowlf the Dog singing Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas is very simple and touching.
There are also some wonderful non-traditional Christmas carols: Alfie the Christmas tree is a delightful story about the true meaning of Christmas, the Peace Carol and When the River Meets the Sea are both beautiful songs.
If you've never heard this album, you are in for a wonderful treat. As a final note, I was lucky enough to tape the TV special off the Disney Channel a few years back. Perhaps if people are interested in having the television special released, maybe Disney has the rights.

Having grown up with the muppets, first on Seasame Street and later their own series and movies, I couldn't resist getting this album. The mix of traditional and John Denver original Christmas songs is the perfect blend.

I have one warning: Be careful of the version you buy. There are CDs out there masquarding as the full 1979 version. Check the play list and make sure there are 13 tracks.

Happy listening and Merry Christmas!

I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVED this album as a kid! I burned the tread off the album listening to it on my Holly Hobby record player! So glad to find it and see they've included all 13 original tracks - there's another version that only has 10. I just ordered several to give as gifts this year to all of our little friends!

I love this album. I had it on vinyl when I was younger. I was disappointed with the previous edition on CD because some tracks were missing. Now they are all together. Hooray!!!

My daughter and I watched "A Christmas Together" with John Denver and The Muppets when it first appeared on television - she was 8 or 9 at the time. We immediately bought the album and ever since that time it is the first Christmas music we listen to every year. We have worn out 2 albums, 2 cassettes, and finally a couple of years ago bought each other CD's as an early Christmas present. All of the music is wonderful. John Denver's voice blends beautifully with those darling Muppets' voices. Even though my daughter is grown and lives in another city, we still get out A Christmas Together on Thanksgiving and listen to it together, and separately many times until Christmas morning when we can be together again and its the first music we listen to when we get up to open presents. Now that she has a baby of her own, we will play the music for him. We would like to know if anyone has seen the television special since it first came out? Every year we check to see if it has been released on video and try to watch the television schedules looking for it. But we have never located it. We would love to see it again, over and over, and have a copy to show the younger generation. You will never regret purchasing this CD or cassette. It is our favorite and will remain so.
