Image: 1592704 Re-issue of the group’s classic holiday anthem with Keith Haring picture sleeve and an additional “Audible Postcard,” back in print for the first time in over 15 years.

SIDE A - CHRISTMAS IN HOLLIS
SIDE B - PETER PIPER

PICTURE SLEEVE 7” WITH “AUDIBLE POSTCARD”

Once you hear those warm-but-mildly-distorted intro horns (sampled from Clarence Carter’s 1968
hit “Back Door Santa”), you are instantly filled with the holiday spirit, thanks to the most important
hip-hop group of the 1980s. By late 1987 this incredible Run-DMC production (co-produced by Rick
Rubin and Steve Ett) had taken full hold of the music world. That holiday season, the song was
featured on the A & M Records charity compilation A Very Special Christmas and was also granted
its own A-side release outside of the U.S., complete with a cover illustrated by the late Keith Haring.
Whether you are a die-hard hip-hop fan or a casual music listener, the song – a tribute to the group’s
hometown of Hollis, Queens – remains a classic December jam to this day, that also gets heads
bopping in March or August. This version of the 7-inch also includes a little song called “Peter
Piper” on the B-side that you may have heard before, plus the full lyrics to “Christmas In Hollis”
printed on the back cover. And to make this package impossible to pass up, Get On Down is also
including a playable “Audible Postcard” of “Christmas In Hollis” in addition to the vinyl – keep it as
a collector’s item or send to a friend to become the illest rap gift-giver of the year. Available from 28.11.2014
