A Motown Christmas
Throughout Motown’s first 15 years, artists from Smokey Robinson & The Miracles to the Jackson 5 frequently released Christmas singles and albums. Gathering 25 favorites from this bounty of soulful holiday cheer, A Motown Christmas is as stylish and cool as the label itself. Rather than familiar arrangements of standards, inventive reworkings rule, including The Supremes' slinky "Silver Bells" and The Miracles' jazzy "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen." Original tunes like Stevie Wonder's "What Christmas Means to Me" are just as spirited.
