Happy Holidays: Stax Christmas Playlist
When it comes to Christmas music, there’s certainly no shortage of holiday-centric songs to be found on your radio dial, but sometimes it takes something with a little bit more soul to help you find the spirit of Santa. Trust us, we get it, and we’ve dug into the archives here at Rhino HQ in order to compile the perfect playlist to help you get into a holiday mood while also getting a little bit funky, too.
Please enjoy our Stax Christmas playlist, which features 22 tracks of Stax, all of which will keep your toes tapping and kick any holiday doledrums into oblivion. We’re talking about contributions from such iconic artists as William Bell, Booker T. and the M.G.’s, The Emotions, Isaac Hayes, Albert King, Nathaniel Rateliffe and the Nightsweats, Otis Redding, Mack Rice, The Staple Singers, Little Johnny Taylor, The Temprees, Carla Thomas, and Rufus Thomas.
