It's that time of the year again...Time to unwrap the presents and be happy! And ooh, would we be happy if Santa was to provide us with this gem...
Jazzman Records is offering us a funky holiday season again! Last year they pressed a 1000 copies of seasonal smash "soulfull christmas" by none other then James Brown to lighten up the celebration of Christ, this year it's up to "Santa's Got a Bag of Soul" by Soul Saints Orchestra to do exactly the same. Now, I had never heard of the Soul Saints Orchestra myself, but as it turns out, this combo is better known as german funkateers Poets of Rhythm, whom we all know for putting out great funk 45's and albums. This tune here was originally released as a christmas giveaway for the Hotpie & Candy record company in 1995, and, back then, only 250 copies were released (originally with "Working on the Line" as flipside, now paired with the previously-unissued-on-45 instrumental "Bag of Soul"). Indeed, way too less copies, because this tune is perfect to turn those dreadfull days into a woweeeeee party! .
