Patti Labelle & The Isley Brothers Are Putting Out Christmas Albums This Year

Both of these Black Music legends have new Christmas albums out for the masses..

Will any of the songs ever trump Donny Hathaway's "This Christmas"?

Maybe, maybe not, but here's some info:

I love Patti, but am NOT feeling this snowflake/tablecloth action she's wearing.

Here's the track listing for her album, Christmas With Miss Patti, the Def Soul Classics label that's out now:

1. Christmas Jam
2. It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year
3. What The Lonely Do At Christmas
4. Holidays Mean More To Me
5. It’s Going To Be A Merry Christmas
6. Do You Hear What I Hear?
7. Nativity
8. Jesus, Oh What A Wonderful Child featuring the Soul Seekers
9. Every Year, Every Christmas
10. Away In A Manger

Ron Isley just screams " 70s Stone Pimpin'" on this cover

I don't have any audio links ready for this album at the moment, but its currently out on Def Soul Classics as well. Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis are executive producers for this project as well, so it should be interesting on some levels (not as "interesting" as the R. Kelly creation of Mr. Biggs, but that's a good thing, I think).

Here's the track listing:

1. Winter Wonderland (Update - Just got an audio link: 10/12/2007 )
2. I’m In Love
3. I’ll Be Home For Christmas
4. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
5. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
6. Christmas Medley * Medley (The First Noel, What Child Is This?, Joy To The World)
7. What Can I Buy You?
8. The Christmas Song featuring Doc Powell
9. White Christmas
10. Silent Night
