Christmas with less saccharine and more darker browner sugar,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Funky Christmas (Audio CD)
Having recently bought the amazing 5 star Christmas album by Etta James recently I looked around the candy store to find some other funky seasonal offerings that were not full of remixed carols, show tunes or right on messages. I needed something more deep down and dirty and here is where I found it in this superb collection of James Brown tracks culled from three older albums from the 60s era ~ the era of golden soul ~ "Soulful Christmas", "James Brown and his Famous Flames sing Christmas Songs" and "Hey America". I dont know if those albums are still available and if not then this current anthology is a superb tribute.
There are a couple of favourites on here but the majority of the songs are new Brown penned masterpieces. Nobody can tear into a song like this guy, like an excited kid on Christmas morning
Just buy it and share the Christmas soul of the Master
