✨✧ Living Guitars/Living StringsJoy Of Christmas/Sound Of Christmas ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1969/1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two sweet instrumental Christmas albums – both from the RCA pop paradise of the 60s! First up are the Living Guitars – that instrumental lineup that took 60s guitar modes from the pop world, and set them up with a bit more of a bachelor pad/easy listening motif – guitar out front in the mix, but also set up in larger arrangements – and sometimes more late nite than rocking. In the mode of other "living" series records from the time, many titles are in medley mode – and include "Winter Wonderland/Sleigh Ride", "Oh Christmas Tree/Deck the Halls", "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus/Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas", "Jingle Bell Rock/Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree", and "Silver Bells/The Real Meaning of Christmas". Next up are the Living Strings – a group who were a bit like the Soulful Strings over at Chess Records, but a lot more mellow overall – although this time around, they've got a bit of an electric bass at the bottom to give them a bump when needed! The group's lush sound is perfect for a Holiday record – especially the kind you play after a big meal, when the evening is winding down – and titles include "The Christmas Waltz", "Winter Wonderland/Jingle Bells/Snow Bells", "Oh Come All Ye Faithful/The First Noel/The Coventry Carol/O Holy Night", "Do You Hear What I Hear", "A Handful of Happy New Years", "Toyland/The Little Drummer Boy/Parade of the Wooden Soldiers", and "Blue Christmas".

✨✧ Soulful StringsGroovin' ... LP
Cadet, 1967. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Seminal instrumental groovers from the Chicago Chi-soul scene! This great group was led by Chess/Cadet soul arranger Richard Evans, and it featured many of the instrumentalists who made Chess records so great – like Cleveland Eaton, Charles Stepney, Morris Jennings, and Phil Upchurch. The tracks have a nice lilting bass-heavy groove – and the set list includes the seminal Chicago classic "Burning Spear", plus "Soul Prelude", "Alfie", "All Blues", and "Within You Without You".
