Experience Christmas

Here's something for you that's a bit out of left field, especially for this blog.  I flipped to this record in my collection and thought it was a budget collection of random tracks on a no-name label, but then I flipped back and picked it up.  I'd not heard of any Christmas music from The Gap Band, so I looked it up online and found that it was a sampler for the Total Experience label, home of The Gap Band, Yarbrough & People and a few others in the early 80's.  Far as I can tell, it's not been reissued, until now.  Get your groove on with A Total Experience Christmas (Total Experience TEL8-5707, Stereo, 1984).

1. The Gap Band-This Christmas
2. The Gap Band-The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)
3. Jonah Ellis-Christmas Won't Be Christmas Without My Baby
4. Yarbrough & Peoples-Christmas Dreams
5. Prime Time-All I Need For Christmas Is Your Love
6. Pennye Ford & Oliver Scott-Silent Night
7. Goodie-Please Come Home For Christmas
8. The Gap Band-I Miss You Most Of All At Christmas
9. Oliver Scott-Joy To The World

Holy crap, rare Gap! Many thanks for this unusual share, Ernie.

Fall into the Gap, as they used to say.

Wow! Not a big Gap Band fan, but I don't imagine most fans of theirs even know about it. I'll check it out anyway. Why not?

Amazing! Thanks for everything, but especially this!

It doesn't seem to be an especially popular share... Not my audience, I guess.
