Editors’ Notes

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.

Best Soul R&B Classic..back down memory lane album!

This will take you back to those nostalgic days of the seventies...when R&B had depth and plenty of soul. This played all the time in our house when I grew up. It was great then and spectacular now!

Amazing Holiday album!

Since I was a child in the 1980s living in South America my parents would play this on the cassette tape every Christmas. Although we bought a CD player after, they still kept the tape to play this album among others! Always thought these were the only Christmas songs in the world. Love "Gee whiz, it's Christmas" and "What are you doing this New Year's Eve?"

Great!!! Great!!! Great!!!

Wow, so glad this finally made iTunes. I've been looking for it. Grew up listening to this every Christmas with my family. Not until I was in my twenties did it occur to me that "Backdoor Santa" had a whole different meaning. LOL!!! Personal favorite is "Gee Whiz, It's Christmas." Carla Thomas has a beautiful voice. Love it.
