Product Description

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!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 18 Dec. 2013
Format: Audio CD
Although not in chronological order, the first half of this compilation mostly contains older recordings while the second half mostly contains more recent music.

The set opens with the original version of Please Come Home for Christmas (by Charles Brown), although some of you may be more familiar with other versions, particularly by the Eagles (whose version was a top 10 American hit in the late seventies) or Jon Bon Jovi.

This Christmas, originally co-written and recorded by Donny Hathaway, is featured twice - one being Donny's version and the other being by Stephanie Mills, whose version reflects the different era in which it was recorded.

Other highlights include Merry Christmas baby (Otis Redding), Santa Claus go straight to the ghetto (James Brown), I Want to Come Home for Christmas (Marvin Gaye), What do the lonely Do at Christmas (Emotions), My gift to you (Alexander O'Neal) and Cold, cold winter in the ghetto (Lonnie Hill).

Let it snow '98 (Boyz II Men) is their own song, not a cover of the classic Let it snow (featured here via an excellent cover by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles). However, Let it snow '98 is the weakest track on an otherwise impressive compilation.

A great collection of soulful Christmas songs. None better than the wonderful "This Christmas" by Donny Hathaway.

If you see a CD on the Harmless label you can always expect it to be expertly compiled by Ian Dewhirst, compiler of the fantastic BackBeats series.
