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".
(Cover has some wear, aging, clear tape on the seams, and a small stain at the spine.)
