Real Gone Music
Christmas green vinyl, limited to 1,000 copies!
Judging by his work with Goodie Mob, Gnarls Barkley, and his own solo career, a Christmas record from Cee Lo Green would seem like a "crazy" idea. And the fact that this 2012 release had guest stars ranging from Rod Stewart to Trombone Shorty to his fellow singing coach on The Voice, Christina Aguilera, might lead one to suspect a commercial sell-out. But you know what? This was absolutely not a holiday cash-in; Cee Lo's Magic Moment is just that, a positively old school Christmas album full of heart, soul, and devotion.
The song listing is simply killer, ranging from old chestnuts like "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "White Christmas" to Donny Hathaway's "This Christmas" to Joni Mitchell's "River." And despite that wide stylistic breadth, Cee Lo pulls it all off with gusto and panache, with a little help from his friends both human and, er, fabric?
(Perhaps the most charming track is "All I Need Is Love," at the end of which The Muppets cut Cee Lo down to their diminutive size). Real Gone Music is thrilled to release Cee Lo's Magic Moment on vinyl for the first time, in a Christmas green vinyl pressing limited to 1,000 copies, housed inside a jacket with a printed inner sleeve. Merry Christmas, everybody!
