John Denver had already recorded two Christmas albums before this one, these being Rocky Mountain Christmas and an album with the Muppets. This one was recorded to raise money for an environmental project that involved planting trees.

The album opens with John's own song, Christmas like a lullaby. It also features two Tom Paxton songs, these being the well-known children's song Marvellous toy and a song that I might or might not have heard before, The children of Bethlehem. The remaining ten songs are all very familiar, but there are differences here and there. The credits say that this version of Jingle bells has an extra verse written by Tom Paxton (yes, him again, but I like his music too). I need to listen more closely to see what the extra verse is about. One clear distinguishing feature of Jingle bells is the backing of a group of children, who can also be heard on Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer. These children sing well and add something to the music.

If you enjoy John Denver's music, this album should appeal to you, although if you haven`t got Rocky Mountain Christmas, you may want that too as it features Please Daddy don`t get drunk this Christmas.

Item was described as new but arrived without cellophane and had slight scratches. There were used items advertised cheaper but as I was buying as a gift I went for new option.

I have always enjoyed John Denvers easy style of music and song and this was not disappointing. Arrived when expected, excellent service.
