Cash-era Statlers gospel leaves new stuff in the dust July 17 2002
By daniel dodson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Before moving to Mercury, the Statlers owed Columbia, the label to which Johnny Cash recruited them, one more album. My recollection is that the 1969 album of gospel tunes was originally titled 'How Great Thou Art,' then later retitled 'Oh Happy Day.'
Recently, a CD entitled 'Oh Happy Day' got hopes up for fans of pre-Mercury Statlers, but it was simply a compilation of Columbia recordings, and the title song was the only one from the Columbia gospel album. Most or all of the other stuff was already available on CD.
This is the rest of the 1969 gospel album. It showcases the Statlers' unique voices and harmony like nothing since. They re-recorded many of the songs for their pair of biblically-themed albums soon after joining Mercury, but the ones I have heard indicate that they had already lost their edge.
Particularly for fans of Lew DeWitt, the original Statler Brothers tenor, this album is a must. If you've heard this version of 'How Great Thou Art,' you won't be surprised by DeWitt's highs on 'Pass Me Not,' and his own 'Just in Time.' The rest is good, too, and of particular interest is 'Less of Me,' written by Glen Campbell.
If you want the complete 1969 album, you'll have to find 'Oh Happy Day' separately, because it is not included here.

My favorite Statler Bros. Album Aug. 13 2009
By Richard E. Hanson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I had the original Oh Happy Day LP of this album. However, over the years, it became worn and scratched. I had also copied it to tape, but the cassette deteriorated. I found this by accident while looking for something else at Amazon. My only dissappointment is that it does not include "Oh Happy Day" that was on the originl Album. It was that song that popularized Gospel Music into the mainstream. Gospel, which evolved from spirituals but is not the same, really began with the Azuza Street Revival in LA and was given a push with Mahalia Jackson in the late 30's and 40's, but it was the Edwin Hawkins' arrangement of "Oh Happy Day" that really propelled Gospel. This is still a great album with one of the greatest Gospel singing groups performing it.

Disappointing May 21 2010
By Festus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I found this CD to be very disappointing. I appreciate listening to the harmony of the group but on this CD the high tenor part was was akin to fingernails grating on a blackboard. I enjoyed the song, Just in Time, Daddy Sang Bass and most of How Great Thou Art, but on several of the others there was too much talking rathers than singing. I Listened to the clips of the songs prior to purchase, however, those clips contained the nice harmony.

The Statlers are my favorite vocal group. The fact that they are from different families who have come together to make recordings of this type and their other recordings is special and their harmony is very good.
