A Haunting Gift Left Behind By John Denver!
on November 19, 2003
This wonderful album by John Denver is one of my favorite Christmas albums, and for good reason; it serves up both John and the wonderful sounds and antics of the Muppets, and makes itself a terrific family listening experience. The inimitable Mr Denver is in top form here, and his selection of songs and arrangements is perfect. Many of these songs are timeless, and a few like "The Peace Carol" and "Christmas Is Coming" are very special songs written by John himself. John's voice is in perfect pitch as he soars through "A Baby Just Like You", "Deck The Halls", "Silent Night", "We Wish You A Merry Christmas", and a breath-taking "Medley". He seems so very much at peace and happy as he sings all the songs on this album, and it is a comfort to those of us who considered him a special person and entertainer to still have him around with wonderful seasonal albums like this as well as all the more popular albums he left behind as his personal legacy to a grateful world. He has been gone for a few years now, but with albums like this to share with millions of kindred souls, John Denver will never be forgotten. Peace!
