THE STATLER BROTHERS: The Complete Mercury Christmas Recordings Featuring the Albums “Christmas Card” and “Christmas Present”

  • For Four Decades, The Statler Brothers Were One of the Most Popular Groups in Country Music 

  • Two of Their Most Beloved Albums Were Their Christmas Releases, 1978’s Christmas Card & 1985’s Christmas Present 

  • Christmas Card Was a Platinum-Selling Album 

  • Both Records Are Currently Out of Print 

  • Real Gone Music’s Release of The Complete Mercury Christmas Recordings Includes Both Albums in Their Entirety 

  • Liner Notes by Stalwart Statlers Fan John Alexander 

The Statlers’ patented country gospel sound and Christmas music were a marriage made in, well, heaven…and so both of the albums, Christmas Cardand Christmas Present, that comprise this collection of their complete Christmas recordings for the Mercury label hit the country charts and remain favorites of holiday listeners young and old. In fact, 1978’s Christmas Card went platinum; it’s made up of mostly well-known Christmas favorites while 1985’s Christmas Present, recorded with new member Jimmy Fortune, who had replaced Lew DeWitt due to illness, brought more originals to the mix. Both albums remain a big part of the country Christmas canon, and though they’ve been sliced and diced for various collections over the years, the original albums themselves have been out of print for years. The Complete Mercury Christmas Recordings sets things right by offering both albums in their entirety with original album art included inside the CD booklet, with liner notes by long-time Statlers fan and follower John Alexander. Essential down-home holiday sounds from Real Gone Music!
