One of the coolest Christmas albums ever – a tripped-out classic from Chicago's legendary Rotary Connection! The album's every bit as wonderful as any of the group's non-Holiday sets for Cadet Records – and maybe even has more to offer, given that the euphoria of the season is thrown into the usual spacey mix! Charles Stepney lays down some totally angelic production – and the record bubbles with heavenly instrumental passages – floating along like clouds, then suddenly exploding into sharp musical moments that provide the perfect backdrop for Minnie Riperton's excellent voice. Most of the tracks are originals, penned as spacey seasonal numbers that bring a whole new sense of spirituality to the end of December – a young, optimistic take on the holiday – which makes for a really unique sort of record! Titles include "Christmas Child", "Opening Round", "Silent Night", "Christmas Love", "Shopping Bag Menagerie", "Peace At Last", "Silent Night Chant", "Sidewalk Santa", and "Last Call For Peace".

Atlantic, 1975. Very Good-
The third album from Black Heat – and quite possibly the funkiest of the bunch – thanks to an even tighter sound than before, and lots of emphasis on the bottom of the groove! The group's got a few more members than before, but their sound is somehow even leaner – a really tight ... LP, Vinyl record album

King, 1970. Very Good-
Further genius from James Brown at the start of the 70s – a record that's starting to show some of the more open-ended grooves he'd explore with the JBs on their own albums – longer, stretched-out tracks that are way more than simple funk and soul! There's a sense of freewheeling ... LP, Vinyl record album
