|Unforgettable farewell performance you're sure to enjoy Feb 26, 2005|
|For my money they were one of the most important acts in American popular music in the 20th century. The Statler Brothers would rank right up there with the Mills Brothers, Ol' Blue Eyes, Elvis and Bing. After all, they were a fixture on the country music charts for more than a quarter century. They hosted a highly successful variety show on the Nashville network for seven years. And audiences flocked to see them perform for nearly four decades. And like the Mills Brothers before them the Statlers had their own inimitable sound. |
"Farewell Concert" is a celebration of the phenomenal career of the Statler Brothers. The 2 disc set features a dozen of the groups most memorable chart hits including "Elizabeth", "More Than A Name On A Wall", the moving tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for the rest of us in Vietnam as well as two of my very favorite Statler hits "The Class of '57" and "Do You Remember These". And as anyone who has ever been to a Statler Brothers concert knows the group always liked to dabble in all kinds of music. And so the group highlights some of their favorite tunes from the 1950's including "Oh Baby Mine" (aka "I Get So Lonely"), "Moments To Remember", "Memories Are Made of This" and one the groups all-time favorites "The Great Pretender." And if you watched the TV show you know that Harold always had a story or two. Such is the case here as well. And in the final segment the group treats us to a few familiar gospel tunes including of course "How Great Thou Art" and the closing number "Amazing Grace" which was the first song the group ever sang together. And so while we will never see Harold, Phil, Don and Jimmy perform again it is a comfort to know that this final concert has been recorded for posterity.
It is an outstanding disc and one that I will cherish for the rest of my days. The Statler Brothers were truly one of my all time favorites! Very highly recommended!
