Even many of their longest-standing fans have been unaware that THE DELLS have some exceptional Christmas music in their repertoire. Way back in 1993 the group cut a couple of beautiful, warm, original Christmas songs – ‘Spending Our Christmases Together’ and ‘Cause It’s Christmas Time’. Both, naturally, feature stunning harmony vocals with the former being written by the group’s baritone MICKEY MCGILL with wife ROSE and the latter penned by MARVIN JUNIOR JNR, son of lead baritone MARVIN JUNIOR.
Both songs were never issued in the 90s but they’ve now become available via THE DELLS own web site – www.themightydells.com and also from CDBaby and Dusty Groove America. They underline what all real soul fans know – that few groups have ever achieved the majesty, power and passion of the combined vocals of MARVIN JUNIOR, JOHNNIE CARTER, CHUCK BARKSDALE, MICKEY MCGILL and VERNE ALLISON.
