This set is the honest to goodness real deal, an undeniably great Christmas album that not only includes simple but striking arrangements of several holiday classics but also plays and feels very much like an album of tracks that really belong together, and it builds as it goes into a striking and powerful listen. Recorded in 1962 at Universal Studios in Chicago, the album features the classic Staple Singers lineup of Pops, Mavis, Yvonne, and Pervis Staples on vocals, with Pops doubling on his trademark reverb-drenched guitar alongside Maceo Woods on organ and Al Duncan on drums. The arrangements are simple and natural, leaving plenty of room for the vocals, and versions here of "The Last Month of the Year," "Joy to the World," and Thomas Dorsey's "The Savior Is Born" are nothing short of an easy, natural perfection. Pops' spooky guitar work gives extra atmosphere to the lightly funky "No Room at the Inn" and the gorgeous rendition of "Silent Night" that ends the album. The 25th Day of December is a wonderful outing, and a classic holiday album.

La britpop en 10 albums

« Si le but du punk était de se débarrasser des hippies, le nôtre est d’en finir avec le grunge. » Lorsque Damon Albarn assène cette phrase en 1993, l’Angleterre s’apprête à reprendre sa place sur un échiquier musical envahi par Seattle avec le grunge et Nirvana. Profondément liée à la vie politique et l’identité locale, la pop britannique se révèle au moment où Tony Blair et le New Labour entrent en scène. Le romantisme anglais redevient attractif par rapport à l’identité américaine, jugée trop creuse outre-Manche. Place à la « Cool Britannia ».

L’âge d’or funk de James Brown

Entre 1967 et 1974, le Godfather transforme sa soul en funk. Entouré par les musiciens les plus groovy du moment, James Brown orchestre une BO en phase avec les changements de la société américaine. Et tout le monde saute à bord de la Sex Machine !

Stax, on dirait le Sud…

Motown au nord. Et Stax au sud. Deux conceptions bien distinctes de la soul music. Dans la moiteur sudiste de Memphis, Isaac Hayes, Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Booker T. et quelques autres ont inventé un groove unique, biberonné au blues et surtout au gospel.
