LP auf SUNDAZED RECORDS von Booker T & The M.G.´s - In The Christmas Spirit (180g Edition) Booker T. & the MG´s ´ the heart, soul and pulse of Stax Records ´ cut their incredible holiday album, In the Christmas Spirit in mid-1966. With their unique, soulful groove, Jones, Cropper, Dunn and Jackson interpret 12 holiday classics, infusing each and every track with funk, taste and style. Just listen to that chiming organ, that pulsing bass, that ringing guitar´and is that 12 drummers drumming´ No, it´s just Al Jackson, the man with a beat so big that the elves can hear it all the up in the North Pole! To guarantee the funkiest Christmas ever, make sure that you keep In the Christmas Spirit by your side throughout the Yuletide. This labor of love from Sundazed Music is sourced from the original analog (and fruitcake free!) Stax Records masters, pressed on vinyl pure as the driven snow, wrapped in the festive original artwork and hung by the chimney with care. Wait, the chimney´!´! Oh, no, the fire´s still burning´quick, throw some eggnog on it!!! ´There´s no reason to believe the little drummer boy didn´t break into a danceable groove every now and again--and no cause to think that Christmas music has to be listened to from an easy chair. This legendary rhythm & blues combo spreads the spirit of the season in much the same way it did its many chart- toppers--with a greasy backbeat and a heaping helping of cool keyboards courtesy of Booker T himself. Originally issued in 1966, this disc lets the MGs strut through deftly arranged versions of Christmas standards like ´Winter Wonderland´ and ´Silver Bells´ with sass, class, and more than enough panache to keep it on your system through the New Year.´ -David Sprague

Toy of the Year; Toy of the Century; Greatest Toy of All Time... there aren’t many titles that haven’t been bestowed on LEGO toys, and it’s not hard to see why. From its inception in the early 1930s right up until today the LEGO Group’s history is as colourful as the toys it makes. Few other playthings share the LEGO brand’s creative spirit, educative benefits, resilience, quality and universal appeal. The LEGO name is now synonymous with play time, but it wasn’t always so. This history charts the birth of the LEGO Group from the workshop of a Danish carpenter and its steady growth as a small, family-run toy manufacturer to its current position as a market-leading, award-winning brand. The company’s growing catalogue of products including the earliest wooden toys, plastic bricks, play themes and other building systems such as DUPLO, Technic and MINDSTORMS are chronicled in detail, alongside the manufacturing process, LEGOLAND parks, licensed toys and computer games. Learn all about how LEGO pulled itself out of an economic crisis and embraced technology to make building blocks relevant to 21st-Century children and discover the vibrant fan community of kids and adults whose conventions, websites and artwork keep the LEGO spirit alive. As nostalgic as it is contemporary Building a History will have you reminiscing about old Classic Space sets, rummaging through the attic for forgotten minifigure friends and playing with whatever LEGO bricks you can get your hands on (even if it means sharing with your kids).
