The Statler Brothers 8 Album/4 CD Boxset

BED OF ROSE’S – (1970)
The STATLERS’ first album on the Mercury label where they remained for 25 years. This set the tone of all future albums – a few cover songs of the hits of the day plus seven original songs written by the Brothers.

PICTURES OF MOMENTS TO REMEMBER – (1971)

From this collection, which has never before been on cd, the STATLERS established their image with memory songs. This was their first ‘concept’ album, featuring old standards and original material written mostly by Harold, Lew and Don.

INNERVIEW – (1972)

No, that title is not a misprint. This collection was to show an inner view of the Brothers and their music. The single that led this album was “Do You Remember These?” written by Harold and Don. It was the song that was credited with beginning the ‘nostalgia’ craze of the 70’s.

COUNTRY MUSIC THEN AND NOW – (1972)

The hit, “Class of ‘57” came from this album but many remember it as the introduction to Lester ‘Roadhog’ Moran and His Caddillac Cowboys’. This was a comedy routine written and performed by the Statlers. The story of how it was born and got on record is told in the book Random Memories by Harold and Don. (This album has never been released on cd until now.)

COUNTRY SYMPHONIES IN E MAJOR – (1973)

This was the first album recorded by the STATLERS after leaving the Johnny Cash Show, the man who discovered them. They were now not just writing their own songs but also formed their own publishing house. Note the range of this album from Bluegrass to Pop to Country Standards to Rock Standards.

CARRY ME BACK – (1973)

Again, never before on cd. The album is literally a cumulation of memories set to music. Note: “I Wish I Could Be” is the answer to the perfect STATLER trivia question, “What song did the Statler Brothers record that they never sang together”.

THANK YOU WORLD – (1974)

First time on cd for this one, too. Features a song that has become one of the most asked about in the STATLER catalog – “The Blackwood Brothers by the Statler Brothers”. Written by Don, it tells of the STATLERS’ heroes and musically salutes the Blackwoods through the mention of their many southern gospel hits.

SONS OF THE MOTHERLAND – (1974)

Here is where Elvis first heard “Susan When She Tried” before recording it on his TODAY album. This collection (never before on cd) ranges from patriotism to old Country covers to more originals from the Brothers.
