If Donny Hathaway had lived to see This Christmas enshrined as the black Christmas anthem-a standard recorded by singers from Aretha Franklin to Usher-he likely would have been pleased, but not surprised. By then, Hathaway had signed with Atlantic Records, in New York, which would produce his self-titled album the following year. But he recorded This Christmas at Universal Recording, on the North Side of Chicago, close to home. McKinnor said, The only time I heard him do it live was in the studio. He was telling the strings what to do.
