Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 11

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".

Excellent work from this smooth Chicago vocal group! The album may well be the best the group ever recorded – and it features some stellar ballad work produced with a nice spacey tone, almost in a Rose Royce mellow mode – by Jerry Butler's Fountain Productions team and by Clarence ...

A masterpiece of funky soul – and one of the greatest albums of the early 70s!
