ACGFY is one of my holiday faves, too! But, "James Brown's Funky Christmas" is the ULTIMATE!
I hope I say this right. I've always felt that even though he's credited with writing all the songs, and producing them, I always thought of The Ronettes, The Crystals, certainly The Righteous Brothers, were the true artists.

I'll never forgive him for beating Ronnie Spector. What's love got to do with it
Looks like Annie Golden sings backup for Darlene Love on Letterman. I am looking forward to what they do with it this year.
