Merry Christmas people who come to this website. I know I should probably just not post anything today like I do on most holidays, but I do love Christmas music and thought it would be the best day to post about this new pick up. I saw this reissue of the Booker T & The MG's Christmas album when I was out record shopping with @swamipat around Thanksgiving. It seemed a bit pricey at other music so I decided to hold off and look for it online.
And due to all of the sales at the end of the year, I managed to pick up up for $7 less than I saw it for at the store, plus free shipping. The record itself is good, though funny enough it's a lot like the Elvis Christmas album, with a killer, grooving A side, and a B side that gets a little slow and focuses on more religious traditional songs that I'm not as into.
The A side definitely lends itself as a nice companion piece to the Ventures Christmas album and I do see a long future of this record coming back out this time of the year.
