Love the Christmas spirit but not impressed with the standard musical offerings? Maybe you prefer bling over Bing and enjoy a little Hennessey in your eggnog? If that's the case, then this album is for you. Compiled by the retro audiophiles at Rhino Music, Soul Christmas sports 14 festive selections as performed by some of the funkiest artists of the 20th century. Drawing mostly from the ‘60s and ‘70s, it features soul superstars like Otis Redding ("White Christmas" and "Merry Christmas Baby"), William Bell ("Every Day Will Be Like a Holiday"), and Solomon Burke ("Presents for Christmas"). Other choice cuts include Clarence Carter's mischievous "Back Door Santa," Carla Thomas' gleeful "Gee Whiz, It's Christmas," and a pair of instrumental heaters from the inimitable Booker T & The MGs. Everyone puts their own unique spin on these holiday classics, creating something brand new out of old chestnuts you've heard a million times before. One of the best Christmas comps ever assembled — and the perfect gift for the soul music lover in your life.
