Please rate this album:

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.
