Product Description


Five volumes in 14 years would probably qualify these all-star benefit albums (Special Olympics) as a holiday tradition by now, even if all five have been hit-and-miss affairs. Still, the 2001 edition has a few more highlights than a quick glance at its offerings might indicate. Jon Bon Jovi tries to imitate Elvis on "Blue Christmas," and Darlene Love--surely as important a voice in the genre as Bing Crosby--falls short in her attempt to recreate her superior 1963 Phil Spector version of "White Christmas." Genuinely cool, though, are Macy Gray's jazzy "This Christmas," Eve 6's pop-metallic "Noel! Noel!," City High's hip-hop Christmas hybrid, and SR71's goofy take on Billy Squier's already goofy "Time to Say I Love You." Things get downright steamy--and Santa-sized--when John Popper meets up with B.B. King for the bluesy "Back Door Santa." --Bill Holdship

5.0 out of 5 stars Phil Spector at his best Oct. 16 2002
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this album because of just one song. Darlene Love's White Christmas! 1963, and Phil Spector at his best! But, that's not all. Stevie Nicks' "Silent Night" is the best version I have ever heard. A wonderful surprise awaits everyone who gets this album. I call them "albums", whether it's a CD, cassette, or album!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Special Christmas CD Dec 19 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Once again, if you only buy one holiday album this year...this one is it!!!!! In this unsettling time when we can not look at a newspaper or turn on the television without learning of some horrific tragedy in Iraq or here at home it's nice to be able to take a break with your family....put on some music....and listen to holiday classics sung by great musical talents such as Stevie Wonder, the incomprable Wyclef Jean, the rockin' Jon Bob Jovi and B.B. King. This album has something for eveyone in the family. Plus the profits go to benefit physically handicapped children....!!! Is there a better way to ring in the New Year than to remember the spirit of Christmas!!

Except for a few singers I like on here, like Dido, Sheryl Crow & Tom Petty, & maybe a couple others, this looks like a waste. I'm better off sticking to making my own cds. I'm starting to hate most modernized versions of Christmas songs, they just ruin it. Ugh, just look at the artists of the 1st 3 tracks (I can't stand any of them)... isn't there something wrong here???? I might be young, but I think I'll stick to the older guys (Crosby, Sinatra, Cole, Elvis, etc.). "Very Special" has done better in the past, but I guess they just can't keep it up.

I purchase "A Very Special Christmas" along With Whitney Houston's Christmas album "One Wish". I have only one thing to say. I love Whitney's Christmas album "One Wish". It's definately a special christmas album. I'm happy I purchase it along with "A Very Special Christmas". I definately would recommend "One Wish" to anyone who loves good Christmas songs.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Very Wasted Christmas 5 Dec 26 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
90% of this album; the time the artists used to make it, the time it took to purchase and listen to it, the time it took to care enough to write a review was a waste of time. There is nothing Christmas about it.
