Label: Universal Motown Records Group
Three of James Brown's sizzling, groovy, positively political, heartfelt and (sometimes) bizarrely joyous Christmas albums get compiled on this feel-good disc. The remembered hits are "Santa Clause Go Straight to the Ghetto" and the unbelievably funky (O.K., with Brown you can believe how funky it is) "Christmas Is Love," while the lovely soul ballad "Santa Claus Is Definitely Here To Stay" deserves to be heard every holiday season by members of any and all faiths.
