A Tribute to Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas by PINWHEEL PARADE (featuring Matt James) was originally released as "Matt Surowiec and the Tricentennial Band". The 2007 version was a 30th Anniversary tribute album, featuring covers of the original songs from Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas.
The songs are performed and sung by Matt James, featuring new bluegrass/jug-band arrangements. The exception is "Riverbottom Nightmare Band", which recreates the rock style of the Riverbottom boys' performance.
All songs (composed by Grammy and Academy Award Winner Paul Williams) were officially licensed from The Jim Henson Company and other respective copyright holders, and the album has been approved by the Henson Company as the first official tribute recording.
The album was released in 2007 with a limited CD printing, and was rereleased in 2009 with the title "A TRIBUTE TO EMMET OTTER'S JUG BAND CHRISTMAS" by PINWHEEL PARADE (featuring Matt James).
