Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

Various Artists - A Very Special Christmas 3 (1997)
Other than the fact that proceeds go to Specials Olympics, there's nothing very special about this release. Stick with Volume 1.
Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: #31 (Dec 27, 1997)
Tracks: You should avoid the following tracks:
To be fair, Natalie Merchant's take on Children Go Where I Send Thee is good. Unfortunately, simply being "good" easily makes it the best song on this compilation.
Personal Memory Associated with this CD: Disappointment
