JIMMY DEAN: Jimmy Dean’s Christmas Card—The Complete 

Columbia Christmas Recordings. CD 

The title of the late Jimmy Dean’s autobiography is 30 Years of Sausage, 50 Years of Ham, but a more appropriate summation of his life is etched on his tombstone epitaph: “Here Lies One Hell of a Man.” For Jimmy Dean really did do it all—Top Ten pop and country singer, pure pork sausage purveyor, James Bond villain, Tonight Show host, even patron saint to puppeteer Jim Henson (Henson got his break on Jimmy’s 1963-1966 TV show). But without question one of the highlights in a life full of ‘em was Jimmy’s 1965 holiday release, Jimmy Dean’s Christmas Card. Not only did the album hit #13 on the Christmas charts but it hit the charts for the next two years, and spawned a hit single, “Yes, Patricia, There Is a Santa Claus,” that remains one of the great Christmas novelty tunes of all time. We’re serving up a fresh remastering (by Maria Triana at Battery Studios) of this Christmas classic, and adding three non-LP sides (including the single version of “Yes, Patricia”) to comprise his complete Columbia Christmas recordings. Photos and liner notes by Joe Marchese complete one heartwarming Christmas package.
