Vocalist Gary Walker (who recorded a couple of 45s for the Jin label in Lousiana and later teamed up with the Boogie Kings) should not be mistaken for the drummer Gary Walker (that came to some commercial success in the UK in the 1960s). This Christmas tune from 1965 obviously renders homage to James Brown s original from earlier that year which had marked nothing less than the beginning of funk music. Ladies and gentlemen. sing along. shake your hips and dance because: Santas Funk & Soul Christmas Party is goin on. Limited to 250 copies to promote the forthcoming Xmas compilation Santas Funk & Soul Christmas Party out 28/11/2011 on Tramp Records.
