Christmas In Soulsville (LP)

+

“Vintage '60s soul from the stars of Stax Records in Memphis: Booker T. and the MGs (‘Winter Wonderland’), Isaac Hayes (‘Winter Snow’), Otis Redding (‘Merry Christmas, Baby’). This 2007 compilation (replacing 1982's It's Christmas Time Again, which collected the label's scattered Christmas singles for the first time) is at its strongest when it's uptempo and nasty – meaning you won't complain that both Albert King and Mack Rice do versions of ‘Santa Claus Wants Some Lovin'."
