SoulCuts Advent Calendar – Day 15 – Salsoul Orchestra – You’re All I Want For Christmas

15 12 2010

What’s a Christmas party without a little disco? How about some Salsoul? Yes please, I hear you cry, shaking your jingle bells. Salsoul records released some of the greatest disco of the classic era with a dream line-up that included Instant Funk, Loleatta Holloway, Jocelyn Brown, Double Exposure, First Choice, Joe Bataan, the Salsoul Orchestra, Inner Life and Skyy. It’s a lush, string laden sound that will never be repeated.

You’re All I Want for Christmas is a joyous slice of soulful disco from the superbly titled Christmas Jollies II. Produced by the legendary Patrick Adams, with the unmistakable Jocelyn Brown on vocals, it’s one of those cuts that sounds fabulous whatever the season. Ho! Ho! Ho!
