What Child Is This?
  Running Time: 3:52
  Comments: by John Jorgenson (of The Desert Rose Band) and Jann Browne. This is actually track 15 though it says 14 on the disc. Running time listed as 3:52 on the disc because it's including the running time for track 14 on this disc as well (even though the math difference doesn't equate between listed time & CD reader displays).
A Cowboy's Christmas

  Comments: by Wayne Newton. This is actually track 16 though it says 15 on the disc.

  Comments: by Merry Clayton. This is actually track 20 though it says 19 on the disc. Narration at the beginning of the track is by Dick Clark (though his appearance is only credited inside the CD booklet, not on the outer disc packaging).
Ave Maria

  Comments: by Barry Manilow. This is actually track 21 though it says 20 on the disc.
  Running Time: 0:49
  Comments: by Mr. James Stewart. This one has it's own track number (#22) on the disc. "Narration by Mr. James Stewart" is printed after "Ave Maria" but not as a track, which led some to believe the narration may have been at the end of that track.
Unlisted Bonus Track:
O Holy Night

A Gift of Love Benefiting Hospitals for Children

On behalf of the children you're helping with the purchase of this album-thank you for your gift of love. Proceeds from this special album help sustain and enhance pediatric medical programs in hospitals for children throughout the country.

Each year in the United States and Canada more than five million kids, who are seriously ill or injured, receive medical care in special hospitals for children. The common mission of these hospitals is to make quality healthcare available to every child in need.

Our children are our hope for the future and you are theirs. Best wishes for health and happiness during the holiday season and throughout the new year.
