I’m sure there must have been charity records before the Very Special Christmas series on A&M Records, but somehow I can’t remember any. In addition to being two of the greatest record men, Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss are two of the kindest and most generous people in our business, actually two great humanitarians of the world.
The Very Special Christmas series seemed like a crazy idea in the beginning, but boy was it a good one. A great one. Back in the days when we had multiplatinum records, the series raised millions for the Special Olympics.
Special Olympics could use a little help with their R-word campaign right about now, so I would appreciate it if you could click on the link and see if there’s something you can do to help out.
They’re nice folks.
