It's often been said of a vocalist that "he/she puts his/her very heart into every word and syllable," but none more so than Johnny Adams (born Lathan John Adams in New Orleans on January 5, 1932 - died September 14, 1998 from cancer at age 66) as anyone who knows the passion behind his hits like Release Me, Reconsider Me and I Won't Cry will readily attest.

In 1975, he recorded his only Christmas album (A Christmas With Johnny Adams - Ace 2046) which has since been re-released on vinyl in 1987 as Maison de Soul LP-1023 with a different cover, then in a 1993 CD by Ace with the original LP cover, and again as a 1994 CD by Mardi Gras Records with still another cover and the title changed to Christmas In New Orleans.

His effortless handling of a mix of traditional carols and some of the more memorable Pop/R&B Christmas tunes ever written, all recorded at New Orleans' Sea Saint Studio and produced here with excellent sound reproduction and new and informative liner notes written by Jeff "Almost Slim" Hanusch, makes this the perfect album for Holiday enjoyment.

Backing musicians include guitarists Walter Washington and Jimmie Moliere, pianist/organists Sam Henry Jr. And Raymond Jones, pianist Isaac Bolden and drummers Danny Jones and Benson Dupre.
