Complete your John Denver And The Muppets collection. The novelty of this album wears thin quickly. There should be less Muppets and more Denver. It's easy to do stupid Xmas albums and do parody songs of popular Christmas tunes and A Christmas Together is no exception. Mainly, the songs by the Muppets are parodies while the songs by Denver are the tracks that are actually good. If you've not seen the 1979 TV special it's a forgotten classic but this album is a bit of a flop and very short. Pick it up cheap if you are collecting Xmas tunes or a Denver/Muppets completist. Still his Rocky Mountain Christmas album is more appropriate.

The Crown Prince of Christmas Specials, John Denver, probably did his best Yuletide work with.
Henry John Deutschendorf, J. (John Denver) was born in Roswell, New Mexico, to Erma Louise Swope and Henry John Deutschendorf, S. an Air Force officer and flight instructor of German ancestry.

Fun fact: John Denver and the Muppets: A Christmas Together was originally a TV special that aired December 5, 1979 on ABC. Oddly, it has never aired again and has never been released on any format (A grainy version exists on YouTube). The soundtrack was released prior to the special in October of that year. A Brief History Part 2: My Youth. For me, this album IS the soundtrack of my childhood Christmases. My brother and I loved it, so my parents obliged our repeated requests to play the record (yes, I’m that old) again and again
Denver and the Muppets sing The Twelve Days of Christmas. Denver sings The Pleasure of Your Company. Kermit the Frog and Denver reminisce about past Christmases with their friends and families, and sing The Christmas Wish. Miss Piggy confronts Denver in her dressing room about their presumably mutual attraction. Denver and Rowlf the Dog sing Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. Miss Piggy, as a doll named Fifi, sings I Will Wait for You to Denver, who plays a wooden soldier trying to stay in step with a line of marching soldiers. The cast sings The Peace Carol.
The Crown Prince of Christmas Specials, John Denver, probably did his best Yuletide work with the Muppets. There is some great fun here, particularly for kids, although the TV special has aged a little faster than most of the Muppet material. The songs use electric piano far too much, and have a kind of dated sentimentality about them, but they are entertaining nonetheless
