VARIOUS A Very Special Christmas (1987 US 15-track compilation CD album also features Bon Jovi Madonna Sting Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams picture sleeve DX2159)
When was the last time you heard collard greens being sung about in a Christmas song? Probably never, unless you're a Run DMC fan, or were wise enough to hop on the Very Special Christmas tip. The rappers' contribution to this benefit collection is probably the highlight, although traditional songs covered by now-traditional artists like the Pretenders ("Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas") provide the majority of the material here. Eurythmics turn in a suitably chilly "Winter Wonderland," Stevie Nicks sings a beautifully haunting "Silent Night," and Whitney Houston proves again that she's every woman with "Do You Hear What I Hear"--that is, every woman with a voice strong enough to do the song justice. "Santa Baby," Madonna's contribution, isn't as sultry as it could be, but there's more fun thanks to hell-on-heels, the Pointer Sisters and Bon Jovi. --Steve Gdula

I love Madonna's cover of the Eartha Kitt classic, Santa baby. Do you hear what I hear was recorded early in Whitney Houston's career when I enjoyed her music. Santa Claus is coming to town is performed with great enthusiasm by the Pointer sisters.
Christmas (Baby please come home) is a superb cover of Phil Spector's classic song from his famous sixties Christmas album, on which it was performed by Darlene Love.
Although I've heard more different versions of Silent night than of any other song (Christmas or otherwise), I can say that the version included here by ex-Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks is among the best, if not the best, that I've heard.
Indeed, there's only one track that I'm not keen on. I've never been a rap fan so Christmas in Hollis by Run D M C does not appeal to me, but I can live with it.
The Pointer Sisters start it off so well and it just gets better. It is great to hear such a variety of artists singing such classics as 'Winter Wonderland' and 'The Coventry Carol', and Stevie Nicks is brilliant with her rendition of 'Silent Night'. Madonna's 'Santa Baby' is excellent too.
The only track which took some adjusting to was the Run D.M.C. track, however the children love this, so I guess I have to say that it reaches all levels.
The follow on album (recognised by its green sleeve) is also superb, the highlights for me personally being Aretha Franklin singing 'O Christmas Tree' and a duet between Cyndi Lauper and Frank Sinatra. However, to say that they are the 'best' on the CD would be unfair, as all the other tracks are absolutely superb.
I am sure the 3rd and 4th albums will be well worth a listen.
