A smaller Christmas, Day 2

No requests yet, but the dashboard shows people searching for a certain Philly band’s Christmas music.

So we’ll make that wish come true tonight.

“Christmas Medley,” the Salsoul Orchestra, from “Christmas Jollies,” 1976.

This is 12 minutes of soul, salsa and dance bliss, putting together “Joy to the World,” “Deck the Halls,” “O Come All Ye Faithful,” “Jingle Bells,” “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” “The Christmas Song,” “White Christmas,” “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” “Winter Wonderland,” “The First Noel” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”

You need this at your Christmas party. Don’t get too far away from the mistletoe as you get down to this.

Your Christmas music requests in the comments, please.

Please visit our other blog, The Midnight Tracker, for more vintage vinyl, one side at a time.

    This medley is another reason why the 70s were awesome. Thank you, sir.

    While you’ve got the Salsoul Orchestra album on the turntable, how about a request for the New Year’s Medley? When I worked at WDUX/Waupaca in the late 80s, I used to do a countdown of the top 92 songs of the year on New Years Eve, back-timed to the stroke of midnight when I played “Auld Lang Syne” by the Salsoul Orchestra (at least the first 3 minutes of what is a 12 minute medley).
