Funky Christmas

There's a million crappy CDs you can play at christmas time - this is the antidote. In the Christmas Groove dropped last November on Strut, and now it's coming out as a 2LP set. The cover is a cheeky twist on a James Brown record.

"Following in the footsteps of classic Christmas albums from the Motown stable and James Brown, Strut released the first ever Yuletide compilation on the label in November 2009, IN THE CHRISTMAS GROOVE, featuring 12 rare soul, funk and blues cuts rediscovered from Christmases past.

In November 2010, Strut makes the compilation available as a super-loud 2LP gatefold for the first time, featuring the album’s original sleeve notes by James Maycock of Mojo magazine. For the digital version, we add two new and exclusive tracks, ‘Back Door Santa’ by Amsterdam’s finest analogue funk fiends, Lefties Soul Connection, and a neat twist on the JB classic, ‘Santa’s Got A Brand New Bag’ by Gary Walker & The Boogie Kings."
