Released: (2017 Reissue)

This one arrived in a Post-Christmas box last year so I didn’t really see the point of playing it then.  First spin.  Sounds like a straight up soul burner, with a holiday theme.  Looks like my annual Christmas vinyl rotation just improved by one.  Now if I could actually get around to snagging a copy of “Phil Spector Christmas” and “Charlie Brown Christmas”, my holiday spins would be complete.  Gonna head out this week, maybe this year.  From all the posts, it looks like the Vince Guaraldi one should be easy to find anywhere.

Mavis Staples ‎– Only For The Lonely
Stax ‎– MPS 8539, Volt ‎– MPS-8539
Released: 1970 (1987 Reissue)

Mavis Staples released 2 solo albums for the Stax label; her self titled debut and this one. She’d go on to record some disco for Curtis Mayfield’s Curtom label and even recorded 2 albums for Paisley Park. She’ll always be known mostly for her work with The Staple Singers but her solo stuff is pretty great as well.  Have a listen to “You’re The Fool” (link below), tell me what you think. Classic Stax sound, that.

Bettye Lavette ‎– The 1972 Muscle Shoals Sessions
Run Out Groove ‎– ROGV-057
Released: 14 Sep 2018

Excellent early 70s soul/RnB, backed by one of the baddest working session groups of the time.  Quality songs, production and recording, and the vinyl and album jacket are flawless.  This will likely appeal to fans of Roberta Flack, Aretha Franklin and Gladys Knight.   And you necessarily want to listen to Bettye Lavette’s interpretation of Neil Young’s ”Heart Of Gold”. Funkiest version I’ve heard to date.
