V/A - Christmas Songs

By These Famous Country Artists

(King KLP-811) Nov 1962


Christmas Songs
Rear Cover Side One Side Two

This Various Artists compilation includes The Stanley Brothers' Christmas Is Near, which had previously been released on the Starday Y'All Come - Have A Country Christmas compilation.

From checking with Gary B. Reid's liner notes to The King Years, 1961-1965 and his later The Music Of The Stanley Brothers book, it looks like the session date on The King Years, 1961-1965 booklet is wrong, and that this version of the song must date from 1960.[1]

The Stanley's track can also be found on the 4xCD set The King Years, 1961-1965.

 

For detailed information on the songs/sessions check Gary B. Reid's The Music Of The Stanley Brothers book pages 111, 150.
