25 Days of #christmas #vinyl
It's December 9th and I'm spinning "Soul Christmas," a compilation from Atlantic Records put out in 1968, this features some great soul Christmas songs, both original and traditional.
I'm a huge fan of "Back Door Santa," and of you don't know the original by Clarence Carter, you would probably recognize the main theme from the song, as it was sampled for Run D.MC.'s "Christmas in Hollis." Otis Redding appears in two standout tracks, as well as Booker T and the MG's, William Bell, Joe Tex, Carla Thomas, Sololon Burke, and King Curtis.
This is a perfect album for those times when you think you've had too much Christmas music. Much of this will be new and the artists and performances are all great.
