All next week here on the About R&B site, we're going to focus on the holiday season. Your Guide to R&B will bring you streams of Christmas/holiday CDs that were released this year, plus reviews of new holiday albums, as well as lists of recommended holiday music. As a preview of what's to come, here's "The Last Month of the Year," a classic Staple Singers ode to the month of December, the time of the year the holidays are celebrated. The song, which is a lot different from your average Christmas tune, can be found on the Staples' 1960s Christmas album The 25th Day of December, which was just re-released by Concord Records a few weeks ago.
