Eccentric Snow: The Numero Guide To Holiday Funk


This week we’re handing over Saturday Stream to the Numero Group who shared a Spotify Playlist of holiday tunes. The collection – Eccentric Snow: The Numero Guide To Holiday Funk – features hand-selected songs that marry the holiday season with well-seasoned funkiness. If you’re looking to mix up your Christmas tunes or just want to hear what these expert purveyors of funk compiled, give the set below a spin.

While the Numero Group specializes in digging up, dusting off and re-releasing rare and overlooked music from nearly every era and genre (while listening to Grateful Dead bootleg tapes), their affection for soul and funk is apparent in their richly filled Eccentric Soul series. Here’s how the label described the playlist’s construction:

A yuletide time machine, showcasing far-out holiday sounds! Snowed out, egg-nogged tunes to get you and the crew in the Christmas mood..

Tracks from Numero Group Eccentric Soul releases include entries by Helene Smith, Chocolate Snow and The Shades, alongside more well-known artists from other labels like James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Rufus Thomas and Donny Hathaway, among many others. It’s one hour and 10 minutes of yuletide funk to tie you over until Santa comes to town.
