Description
This time last year in 2004 Jazzman Records pressed and sold all 1000 copies of James Brown's seasonal smash 'Soulful Christmas', which meant that at least 1000 Xmas parties across the world had a brief 3 minutes delight of getting down to the funky sounds of Soul Brother #1, while otherwise enduring the usual Christmas kak of Val Doonican, Kylie and Russ Abbot.

This year it's the turn of those marvellous boys from southern Germany, the Soul-Saints Orchestra (aka Poets of Rhythm), to get those dull parties fired up and cookin', and they know just how to do it - they just ask Santa to bring a bag of soul!

Originally released as a Christmas giveaway for the Hotpie & Candy record company in 1995, Santa's Got a Bag of Soul and it's original flipside Working on the Line is the rarest title of the Poets Of Rhythm/Hotpie & Candy catalog - only 250 copies were pressed! Both songs quickly turned into early deepfunk classics, favoured by the likes of Keb Darge, Snowboy and Ian Wright.

The small pressing run means originals remain rare and they have been known to change hands for 3 figure sums. Now paired with the previously-unissued-on-45 instrumental Bag of Soul, it's destined to be the soulful soundtrack for all 4 seasons, not just for Christmas.
