Funky Christmas

CD (Item 582211) King/Polygram, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Excellent funky Christmas! Not everyone knows it, but James Brown cut a fair number of Christmas albums during the 60s – 3 albums, and a bunch of singles to be exact! They're all super-rare, but this great comp brings together some of the best material from those years – and nearly all the tracks are originals, with a quality level that's just as great as James' non-Christmas recordings. No kidding, The Godfather put his heart and soul into these recordings – and the stuff on here's great if you dig his King albums and singles. Titles include "Let's Unite The Whole World At Christmas", "Santa Claus Is Definitely Here To Stay", "Hey America", "Soulful Christmas", "Let's Make Christmas Mean Something This Year (parts 1 & 2)", "Go Power At Christmas Time", and the perennial fave, "Santa Claus Goes Straight To The Ghetto". 17 cuts in all!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mid 90's Polygram pressing.)

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Arista, 1990. Used
Big bouncing soul from Lisa Stansfield – a record that almost rivaled the first effort from Soul II Soul for UK impact on the American mainstream! Despite a pasty-white cover, the record's got a hell of a lot of color – some rich rhythms that reintroduced a syncopated funky sound to ... CD

Stax, 1970s. Used
An album that pretty much needs no introduction, as it's largely evident from the title. Just ion case you were wondering though, this is quite a batch of heavy soul and protoypical funk. A dozen essential 70s R&B gems, as released on singles, including "Walk On By", "Do Your ... CD
