Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas CD #Giveaway

After 39 years… Emmet Otter returns with a splash!

November 2nd marked the world premiere release of the soundtrack from the beloved Jim Henson produced TV special, Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas. The show first aired December 17, 1977 on HBO and has re-aired numerous times since. Fans have been asking for a release of the soundtrack for many years, which features songs by the legendary Paul Williams, who’s other magical partnerships with Jim Henson resulted in the song “Rainbow Connection.” First week sales have exceeded all expectations and this little muppet is now enjoying a ride up the sales charts!

And that’s not all!
