But I just have to say it…This is the worst album cover I have seen in years!  It’s totally tacky, corny, and downright dorky.


Oblivious Nuetron Bomb and John Ravolta finally get back together after all these years, and this is the best the cover designers could come up with?


Anyway, with apologies to the remaining John (who looks marvelous) and John (who we wish the tabloids would leave alone and let him fly his planes) fans, here’s a quick look at what you’ll find on this This Christmas…. pretty much the same songs as every other yuletide classic, with pretty much the same supporting singers—all big names with great voices. On the other hand, money raised from the sale of the album will go to Travolta and Newton-John’s charities – one to combat children’s disabilities, including autism and seizures, named after John’s late son, Jett; the other to help search for a cure for cancer and to help victims of the disease. So, if you can get past the cover, it may not be so bad afterall.

Personally, they should have stopped making christmas albums after the Chieftains did “Bells Of Dublin” – Now there’s a classic!


Here’s a little sample we found on the Internet:
