Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas

Last night I watched this Holiday special for the first time in years and it was like stepping back in time. I'll admit that this time I had to fight back tears a couple of times, especially when the dialog turned to Emmet's late father. My memories of watching this in the 1980's always involve my Dad who loved the music as much as I loved everything else. Here's one of the great Paul Williams' written tunes that used to put a Christmas smile on our faces and last night do so again.

this one has so many memories attached to it - I watched it every year with my grandmother - this has so much heart without being sickly sweet - gods I love it
