A Wonderful, Warm Christmas Collection with Garrison and Company Dec 28, 2008
This is an unexpected delight for the holiday season! A Prairie Home Christmas: With Garrison Keillor & Hundreds of Friends & Acquaintances (Lake Wobegon) is a collection of skits and musical numbers by Garrison Keillor (famed Lake Wobegon author and story teller...) and a wonderful ensemble of entertainers. I purchased it on a whim as I enjoy Garrison's humor so much, and I am so glad I did! The whole album is a joyful romp celebrating Christmas both as a religious holiday and as a fun, Santa-rich experience.
My favorite skit is when Santa starts telling weary shopper Dwayne he needs to 'stop sniveling and get shopping'. Suggesting gift items that include dried food, underwear and stamps. The accompanying song sticks with me throughout the season and gives me a giggle when I need it most.
Not exactly a traditional christmas music album, Prairie Home Christmas offers a lot of sweet, nostalgic, country Christmas charm in a radio show format, that's not to be missed.
A Prairie Home Christmas Dec 1, 2001
I originally bought this CD as a gift but was curious enough that I opened it and played it. I love it. Obviously, I'm keeping that copy and buying another! I am from the Midwest and haven't been back for Christmas in years. Garrison Keillor's wit and homespun stories, the music and the humor all make me anxious to get back there this year. A Prairie Home Christmas is just the kind of down-to-earth Christmas we all need....
A fine Christmas entertainment collection Jan 27, 2001
This collection of moments from Christmastime broadcasts of "A Prarie Home Companion" is a very good one. It features excellent music, much of it by the "Hopeful Gospel Quartet". It also has wonderful skits, including Tom Keith's amazingly funny sound effects version of the twelve days of Christmas, and a re-telling of the Christmas story by Garrison and the other actors. The only complaint that I would have about this CD set is that Garrison's brilliant storytelling is not the feature of this compilation. Nevertheless, this compilation is without question worth getting for all of those who enjoy "A Prarie Home Companion".
