Part three of a series of records that benefits the Special Olympics, A Very Special Christmas 3 from 1997 is as excitingly eclectic as its predecessors. The first Very Special Christmas album was a great album. It has almost all classic rock Christmas songs that have become staples every Christmas. And some would say they are overplayed. A Very Special Christmas 2 Audio CD. Various Artists.
A Very Special Christmas. Outstanding tracks include the Pretenders "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," with Chrissie Hynde giving a touching performance. s topical "Christmas in Hollis" relies heavily on sampling "Back Door Santa," and may head you toward the dance floor. Alison Moyet's stately version of "The Coventry Carol" is beautifully haunting.
