Rotary Connection - Peace (1968 us, wonderful soul jazz psych fusion)



The Rotary Connection's Peace is a terrific, soulful Christmas album. With its production and soulful vocal arrangements, it has all the hallmarks of a late-'60s pop-soul record. While that may date it slightly, it's nevertheless a blast to listen to the album, thanks to the great performances, particularly on the part of Minnie Riperton.
