Today’s trax



O Holy night  –  Patti Labelle  (Patricia Hoyte along with three others became Patti Labelle & The Bluebelles  – one became a Supreme as in Diana Ross and The – … then came Labelle as a trio …  Patti went solo via Epic, Philadelphia International & MCA Records … this was released on MCA)

Christmas Medley  – Salsoul Orchestra (I had already had a few singles by this group – then in November/December of ’76 – i heard this and  Vince Montana and the Salsoul Orchestra became my all time favourite)

Soulful Christmas  – James Brown (More Funky than Soulful  – this is from second of three Christmas lps – even though they were not 100% Christmas lps)

Joy to the world  –  Mariah Carey (this is from her Merry Christmas cd/lp released in 94 …. remixed by David Morales this is one of Mariah rarer cd singles)

here is a bonus for New Year’s Eve or Old Year’s Night to some

New Year’s Medley  –  Salsoul Orchestra (both Salsoul trax were culled from the Christmas Jollies lp – recorded at Sigma Sound Studios with the usual suspects)

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR  ….  see you around 6th January – which will be our first anniversary
