✨✧ LabelleMerry Christmas From Labelle ... LP
Mistletoe, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A 70s repackaging of the earlier Patti Labelle & The Bluebelles Holiday album – done in a way that makes you think it's a 70s record, but it's not! The recordings are from the early 60s – and have a sweet, warm, innocent sound that's completely wonderful – a soulful girl group take on the sound of the season, handled with instrumentation that's light and playful, yet never too kitschy to get in the way of the group's soulful vocals. Patti sounds wonderful on these tunes, with a quality that reminds us a bit of Barbara Mason in her earlier years – and titles include "White Christmas", "Blue Christmas", "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve", "The First Noel", "O Come All Ye Faithful", "Silent Night", and "Little Town Of Bethlehem". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

Mistletoe, 1963. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
One of the earliest full albums by Patti Labelle – and a Christmas record at that!

Relic, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
Christmas Soul from the great Patti Labelle – a CD that brings together her first full Christmas album, plus a number of bonus singles – making for a nicely stuffed 16 track collection!

✨✧ Rod McKuenNew Carols For Christmas – The Rod McKuen Christmas Album (with bonus track) ... CD
Warner/Real Gone, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rod McKuen throws his hat in the Christmas ring – and comes up with a surprisingly great little record! As with most of McKuen's best albums, there's an approach here that's quite unusual – and very different than the rest – certainly with a focus on the Holiday, but also with that current of sadness that made McKuen such a great choice for Charlie Brown songs in the 60s – especially when he sings in that raspy, worn-out voice that feels like what a grown-up Charlie might sound like, after screaming "Arrrrgh" too much! Backings are full – done in London, and conducted by Arthur Greenslade – and the album's full of unusual originals by Rod, including "So Long Stay Well", "Simple Gifts", "The Carols Of Christmas", "And To Each Season", "Here He Comes Again", "The Snows Of Amsterdam", and "Bethlehem BC". Also includes the bonus track "Baby It's Cold Outside" – a duet with Petula Clark! CD

✨✧ Frank SinatraChristmas Songs By Sinatra ... CD
Columbia, Late 40s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Frank Sinatra's first run of Christmas work – material recorded for Columbia Records in the late 40s, but quite similar to his better-known Holiday sides for Capitol in the 50s! As with that work, the style here is quite respectful of the spirit of the season – more reverent than playful, although always with an undercurrent of sadness that makes the tunes especially nice – that Christmas longing that would show up in the best Holiday records, which Sinatra always seemed to get. Heck, even the version of "Jingle Bells" sounds a bit melancholy – and pretty darn nice, too – next to tunes that include "Christmas Dreaming", "Winter Wonderland", "Let It Snow", "Santa Claus Is Comin To Town", and "White Christmas" – plus a medley of "O Little Town Of Bethlehem/Joy To The World/White Christmas", which begins with a cool spoken introduction.

✨✧ Singers UnlimitedChristmas ... LP
MPS/Verve, 1972. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A groovy batch of Christmas carols from the Singers Unlimited, harmonizing in their trademark mellow, jazzy style over some nice arrangements by group member Gene Puerling! The feel is very sweet – fantastically harmonic, and set to impeccable MPS production – and most of the tunes here are taken in short versions that slide groovily into one another. Titles include "Deck The Halls", "Caroling Caroling", "Nigh Bethlehem", "It Came Upon The Midnight Clear", "Silent Night", "Joy To The World", 'Wassail Song", "Good King Wenceslas", "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Staple Singers25th Day Of December (180 gram pressing) (2021 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Riverside, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A vintage Holiday recording from The Staple Singers – a set recorded back in the group's earliest, rootsiest days! The sound here is quite spare – no surprise, given that the session was done by Riverside Records, at a time when the label was pushing the gospel-influenced quartet onto folk audiences of the 60s – but it's also that spare quality that gives the record a timeless feel that holds up nicely. Instrumentation is just a bit of guitar from Roebuck Staples and organ from Maceo Woods, plus some drums – and titles include "The Last Month Of The Year", "Holy Unto The Lord", "The Savior Is Born", "Sweet Little Jesus Boy", "There Was A Star", "Silent Night", "O Little Town Of Bethlehem", and "No Room At The Inn". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Barbra StreisandChristmas Album ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
We know what you're thinking – "Babs singing Christmas?" – but the album's not a bad one, thanks to some snappy arrangements by Marty Paich! Marty handles Barbra on side one's selection of secular tunes – including "The Best Gift", "My Favorite Things", "The Christmas Song", "Jingle Bells", and "White Christmas" – and Ray Ellis takes over on side two – which features more staid renditions of traditional numbers like "O Little Town Of Bethlehem", "Silent Night", and "Ave Maria". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s stereo pressing.)

✨✧ SupremesUltimate Merry Christmas ... CD
Motown/Real Gone, 1965. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A hugely expanded version of The Supremes classic Merry Christmas album from 1965 – presented here with full stereo and mono mixes, a new 2017 mix, and even bonus tracks too! The core album was one of THE classic Motown Christmas albums of the 60s – a mighty statement of Holiday pride from The Supremes – who are as strong here as on any of their other non-seasonal work from the time! The class and care of the trio really fits the new spirit of Christmas that was emerging in 60s soul music – not the kinds of raw songs about boozing or sadness on the holiday, which were a staple of blues and R&B – but instead these warmly crafted songs of home and hearth, set up perfectly with production by Harvey Fuqua and arrangements from Gene Page, HB Barnum and Ernie Freeman. The whole thing's incredibly soulful – but in a gentle way too – and the set features a dozen holiday numbers including "Silver Bells", "The Little Drummer Boy", "My Christmas Tree", "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer", "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town", and "Joy To The World". 2CD version features 50 tracks in all – 12 mono tracks, 12 stereo, and 12 more titles that are all these very cool alternate mixes of the album, some with alternate vocals! Then, there's lots of Supremes bonus tracks too – including "The Christmas Song (duet version)", "Season's Greetings", "My Favorite Things (live)", "It Won't Be Long Til Christmas", "Just A Lonely Christmas", and "O Little Town Of Bethlehem".

Vocal group Take 6's second Christmas album – a sweet one! With roots in gospel, a love for doo wop, and perfectly arranged acapella vocals, Take 6 is a natural for the genre, and they bring joy, warmth and natural soul to tried-and-true material in a way that's leaps and bounds ahead of so many of their peers. Includes "We Wish You A Merry Christmas/Carol Of The Bells", "Let It Snow", "Oh Little Town Of Bethlehem", "Joy To The World" and more. CD
