Description

Just in time for the holiday season, a picture disc LP with music from Jim Henson's Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas, featuring artwork from the beloved TV special. The 16-track album with music written and produced by Grammy, Golden Globe and Oscar-winning songwriter, Paul Williams ("Rainbow Connection," 'Theme from "The Love Boat,'" "We've Only Just Begun") is limited to 3000 copies. Based on a book by Russell and Lillian Hoban, this beloved Christmas tale, with an all-puppet cast of woodland creatures, tells the story of Ma and Emmet Otter - a family that has little more than each other. When a talent show is held in town, a fifty-dollar prize gives them each hope of buying the other a real present. Originally broadcast on HBO in December 1977, the special was nominated for four Emmy awards. Directed by Jim Henson and adapted for the screen by Jerry Juhl. 'Emmet Otter' starred Jerry Nelson (Fraggle Rock, The Dark Crystal, Sesame Street, The Muppet Show) as Emmet Otter, Frank Oz (Star Wars, The Muppet Show, The Dark Crystal) as the puppet performer of Ma Otter, Marilyn Sokol (Sesame Street) as the voice of Ma Otter, along with frequent Muppet performers Dave Goelz, Richard Hunt, Eren Ozker, and Jim Henson himself. The picture disc will contain 15 tracks from the TV special and a bonus, "lost" song that never made it to air, along with extended liner notes featuring interviews with Oz and Goelz, and a special note from Williams.
