Clarence Carter – Patches (1970)


He’s had a long career, but I am not too familiar with Clarence Carter’s canon. However, the title track off his 1970 album Patches is a classic. Have a great weekend.

Run-DMC – Christmas in Hollis (1987)


Run-DMC Santas

This year’s Christmas day¬†highlight is Run-DMC’s ‘Christmas in Hollis’. It samples Clarence Carter’s “Back Door Santa” and features the frosty cool declaration: “My name’s D.M.C. with the mic in my hand/And I’m chilling and coolin’ just like a snowman”. Merry Christmas everyone!
