I've been watching this every year since I was a baby (seriously, I was born in 1988). For most of my life, I watched this on an old VHS tape that my parents had used to record it when it first aired...it was always one of my favorite holiday traditions. I was thrilled when they finally released it on DVD! No more grainy film, no more fast forwarding through the PBS pledge drives...perfect. This is one purchase you won't regret!

This DVD works better on an old style TV. Due to the technology it was taped with, it's not as clear as newer technology. The program itself was great.

There's nothing better than listening to Peter, Paul and Mary sing some fantastic songs--especially since Mary's passing--it's really done well.

This will be a permanent part of my Christmas season. It will be a wonderful backdrop for decorating the house. It is fun watching them have fun.

For a long time I had been wanting a copy of this treasure and my daughter found it on Amazon. I couldn't be more pleased to be able to watch this whenever I choose.

I attended the taping of this performance at New York's Lehman Center for the Performing Arts in 1987 and have been watching it on PBS for years. Peter Paul and Mary bring out the Little red School House Chorus under the direction of Susan Glass for Light One Candle, a newly written song by Peter Yarrow, and a rendition of the Night Before Christmas comically performed by Paul. This concert had only been available on VHS and PBS used it as a fund raiser for years. and finally now is on DVD. This is a treasure, watching as the camera pans the audience as the grown up's and parents of the kids sing a long always brings a tear to my eyes, as my son at 8 years old is part of the Menorah in Light One candle.
The N Y Choral Society share the stage with Peter Paul and Mary.
The DVD is excellent .

This has been an annual event in our home since the original concert. We struggled with VHS and were delighted when it finally came out in DVD because we had gone through 2 VHS copies. This is a wonderful concert with PP&M at their finest. I hope that one day, this will be available in Blu-Ray. That would make this gem of a concert, the very best it could be. This will be an annual viewing event when we decorate our Christmas trees. It just does not get any better than this, EXCEPT if it were in Blu-ray.

I recall the 1981 broadcast over PBS. I fell in love with the group all over again and when GPB broadcast the new special of Peter and Paul, I knew I had to have the Christmas Concert. It arrived within days of my ordering it. It is still just as fresh and new as it was in 1981. Marvelous addition to anybody who still remember the "folk music" musicians of that era. It will not disappoint!

Brilliant. The best Christmas album of all time with the possible exception of Mario Lanza. That is a close second.
