Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Tribute

2007 marks the 30th Anniversary of the television special "Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas". Since no official soundtrack has ever been released, Matt Surowiec decided to produce a brilliant "tribute" to the magical music from the show. The tribute album is filled with seven beautifully stunning covers of Paul Williams’ magical songs from "Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas".

Matt faithfully performs these holiday classics. From "Ain’t No Hole in the Washtub" to "River Bottom Nightmare Band", this is a must have for any "Emmet" fan (and with a price-tag under $10, how can you say no?)

The album is currently available online (either as a physical CD or as digital downloads) from the following online retailers - iTunes, CD Baby, Snocap and Matt’s Music for Kids. You can get more information on the album (and even hear samples of the tracks) at EmmetOtter.com or on Matt's MySpace page.

I hope this is licensed properly. If not Mr. Surowiec could be in for some legal trouble from JHC for selling this.

Don't worry - the CD is fully licensed.
