Originally released in 1962, well before their 1970s reinvention as the first family of Southern gospel soul, THE TWENTY-FIFTH DAY OF December is just what the title implies, a dozen Christmas standards (including two originals by Roebuck "Pops" Staples, "Holy Unto the Lord" and "There Was A Star") given the Staple Singers treatment. Mavis Staples is in excellent voice throughout, and the quartet's harmonies are at their purest and most exciting. This is what a Christmas album should be. Unknown Contributor Roles: Cleotha Staples; Mavis Staples; Pervis Staples. Personnel: Roebuck "Pops" Staples (vocals, guitar); Cleotha Staples, Yvonne Staples, Mavis Staples, Pervis Staples (vocals); Rev. Maceo Woods (organ); Gus Johnson , Al Duncan (drums). Recording information: New York, NY (1962).
