Label: Charly / 101 Distribution
Release date: November 23, 2010
It’s not a holiday without a whole lotta soul, and this eclectic new compilation from Charly certainly delivers. Selections include such classics as Chuck Berry’s “Merry Christmas, Baby,” The Drifters “White Christmas,” The Cadillacs’ version of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” Jerry Butler’s “ Oh, Holy Night” and “Silent Night,” plus a dash of gospel-soul with the Caravans’ “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and the Staple Singers’ “Born In Bethlehem.” If you don’t already have some of these Christmas classics in your collection, this CD should be considered an essential ingredient that will surely spice up holiday parties.
