A Very Special Christmas Album!

Something different tonight… but also something that ties nicely into the latest Purple Stuff episode:

Here’s the complete A Very Special Christmas Album, from 1987. This was the first of several charity albums featuring big name musicians from all walks.

I feel like every family on the planet had this album, which I love to death. Even if it’s not ringing any sleigh bells for you, you’re probably familiar with most of the tracks, which are still in insane radio rotation every December.

Just from this one album, I count at least five songs that rank among my all-time Christmas favorites.

(Admittedly, I don’t know how many of you will be interested in this. Christmas music is one of my weird points of passion, but I’m constantly reminded that I’m in the minority, there!)
