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.
