Pat Van Dyke - Merry Christmas Baby 7-Inch

A ho, ho, heatrock of a holiday 45 that burns well beyond the Christmas season. Pat Van Dyke is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, and band leader who has gathered praise from the likes of Wax Poetics, Flea Market Funk, Gilles Peterson, Bobbito Garcia, Pitchfork, and more. These recordings of his with vocalist Jeff Taylor serve as a sureshot dose of blue-eyed soul—best enjoyed fireside with a light snowfall. At the very least fire up that burning log on the television. This is that warm, analog sound you've come to expect from Van Dyke. Lush vocals, soulful saxophone, and a cherub choir complete that classic Christmas Sound on this limited-edition 45. Both tracks are originals and both are mastered by the legendary K-Def.
