More Info:

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 more than 15 years. 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 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 the US, complete with a cover illustrated by the late Keith Haring. This tribute to the group's hometown of Hollis, Queens remains a classic December jam. This version of the 7" also includes a little song called "Peter Piper" on the B-side, plus the full lyrics to "Christmas in Hollis" printed on the back cover. And to make it impossible to pass up, there's 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.
