When it comes to holiday specials, Jim Henson’s Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas has always ranked among my favorites – one that I’d eagerly await seeing each year when HBO would get around to airing it again… those primitive years before home video really caught on. Despite numerous releases on VHS, DVD and Blu-ray over the years, the soundtrack never got a proper release, and that’s left fans like myself a little bit bummed. Paul Williams is a legend, having penned the Academy Award-nominated song “Rainbow Connection” from The Muppet Movie, “Evergreen” from A Star Is Born and many other #1 hits (he was also Little Enos in Smokey and the Bandit) and his music from Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas has been fueling singalongs for over 40 years. Now, just in time for the 2018 holiday season, the world premiere release of the soundtrack has finally taken place and Varèse Sarabande Records and The Rock Father™ have teamed-up to give you a chance to win the all-new CD!
For those heading out to their local independent record store for Black Friday, keep an eye out for the Record Store Day-first release of the soundtrack on vinyl, limited to just 2,000 copies! Plus, Fathom Events is bringing Emmet Otter to theaters next month! Jim Henson’s Holiday Special will run in over 500 theaters on Dec 10th and Dec 16th, paired with a The Bells of Fraggle Rock to reach the equivalent of a feature length film.

Music From the Original Television Presentation of Jim Henson’s Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas is available on Spotify, Amazon, Apple Music and more.
