Editorial Reviews

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.

This album quickly became my favorite of 2009 and will surely get lots of play in years to come. From the opening guitar riff to the last funky fade, it never disappointed my desire to hear honest, soulful, rootsy tunes with a Christmas vibe.

Soulful? More than ANYTHING you'll find on the new releases rack.
Danceable? Hell yeah! Try to sit still through track 2

Highlights for me include... Seriously? Every track.

If I could give it a 6 out of 5, I would. The person who rated this record a 1 seems to not have listened. They complain simply about the marketing and price. Give me a break. It's a disservice to these awesome artists and the people who assembled this masterpiece.

Have a funky funky Christmas!

Maybe you shouldn't make this your one and only Christmas soul album--that's what James Brown and the Stax/Atlantic collections are for--but if you collect this kind of material, these are awesome finds. And it's a great party record.

This disc features mostly obscure funk holiday songs with righteous rhythms and a Kringle-Fu attitude. It gets constant play throughout the season in my household. Just be aware that the Isaac Clarke track isn't actually on the CD (or listed on the jewel case--too bad because it supposedly was produced by the legendary Eddie Bo.) And the Captain Elmo track (which is on the jewel case) is actually Johnny Acey and the Esqire's rousing "Christmas Keeps on Coming," a great track, but not the rare calypso Strut promises us. I'm still awaiting an answer to my email to the label. Buy this anyway, but caveat emptor, y'all!

I love Christmas music but sometimes the radio plays the same songs repeatedly. I had never heard any of these songs before and had fun hearing more Christmas, and two New Year's, songs. I was excited to introduce these songs to other people. If I have a Christmas or New Years party, I will add some of these songs to the mix.

I enjoyed the songs, but FYI: what I received was a "bonus sampler" from Strut Records (with play list as shown for this item.) It made me feel ripped off for $11, since it is basically a promo disc with no cover art, liner notes e&c.

what is up with Amazon making this available FREE, but NOT
I'm wondering the same thing. Perhaps it was free on the day they sent the e-mail (two days ago) and just isn't now?
