Favourite Christmas soul record

It's that time of the year when every time you go out anywhere you hear Christmas songs and its the same crap records everywhere. What would be your favourite Christmas related soul record. Mine would have to be Lonnie Hill. Cold winter in the ghetto.

Always liked Frank McComb 'Christmas Day' - had a very enjoyable and cold New York Christmas mid 90's and it was playing in the shops. Remember being amazed at the amount of 'Holiday' music you could buy in the US - seems to be a much bigger thing over there. Anyway Frank McComb avoids the potential schmaltz trap with a superb Donny Hathaway style vocal which I make sure gets a spin every Christmas while I'm peeling the spuds:-

Got Betty Lloyd on Thomas and BSC, just played them both on the twin decks same vocals, the strings are louder on the Thomas side. Curiously the BSC states 3:30 time and the Thomas 2:41, the Thomas side lasts 10 sends longer in the fade???

Solomon Burke - Presents for Christmas - definately the one for me!  Followed by a more modern take on Christmas - Dina Carroll - The perfect year.

Also a guilty pleasure - Love Unlimited - It may be winter outside.
