With Christmas rapidly approaching, Harmless was dreading the prospect of hearing the same old records for longer than we dare to remember. Then we started talking about what kind of Christmas records we'd actually like to listen to and realised that maybe we should do compilation of the kind of records that wouldn't make us wince over the festive period! • Typically we went for iconic artists who made the occasional foray into the Christmas market and typically many were impossible to license. However, perseverance paid off and after much pestering we've gathered together a veritable 'who's who' of black music history and we're delighted to welcome the likes of Otis Redding, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, The Impressions, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway and a host of other big names in black music to the package. • If ever you needed an excuse to buy a Christmas album, then Soulful Christmas should tick the box! Specially priced to make it easy on the pocket and packed chock-full of yuletide classics by the greatest names in Soul Music history, Soulful Christmas should be under a few trees this Christmas!
