The Salsoul Orchestra Christmas Jollies 180g LP (Red Vinyl)
180g Audiophile Red Vinyl Mastered by John Sigmon and Friday Music's Joe Reagoso from Original Salsoul Records Tapes!
The 1970s brought us a lot of great music and some of the finest dance
recordings ever waxed. A lot of the r&b, disco and dance pop music flourished
out of the Philadelphia area thanks to a bountiful collective of creative
musicians, writers and producers. The Salsoul Orchestra were one of the era’s
most celebrated and definitive bands on the scene, which was led by one of dance
music’s biggest pioneers Vince Montana Jr.
1976’s Christmas Jollies was one of the most played albums in clubs, on radio,
in record stores and on television during the classic dance era and still
maintains its status as one of the most revered albums in the holiday music
genre. Out of print for many years on the LP format, Friday Music is very
honored to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile RED Vinyl release of The
Salsoul Orchestra’s Christmas Jollies.
Mastered impeccably by John Sigmon and Joe Reagoso from the original Salsoul
Records tapes, Christmas Jollies is sure to become a treasured item in your
Christmas vinyl collection.
Featuring some of their finest interpretations of Christmas favorites like the
hits The Little Drummer Boy and the stellar Leroy Anderson classic Sleigh Ride,
even more dance smashes abound like the 12 minute plus Christmas Medley which
features all your favorites like Joy To The World, Deck The Halls etc.
Dig deeper into this classic dance favorite and you’ll find the Vince Montana
Jr. original dance floor funk of Christmas Time and his beautiful Philly groove
of the radio hit Merry Christmas All featuring his daughter songstress Denise
Christmas Jollies features over 20 holiday classics performed by The Salsoul
Orchestra featuring some of Philly’s finest players like Vince Montana Jr.,
Norman Harris, Earl Young, Cotton Kent, Ronnie James and Larry Washington, truly, some of the greatest musicians of our time as they prove it on each and every song on this newly remastered limited edition gem.
