The title of the late Jimmy Dean's autobiography is 30 Years of Sausage, 50 Years of Ham, but a more appropriate summation of his life is etched on his tombstone epitaph: "Here Lies One Hell of a Man." For Jimmy Dean really did do it all-Top Ten pop and country singer ("Big Bad John;" "P.T. 109"), pure pork sausage purveyor, James Bond villain, Tonight Show host, even patron saint to puppeteer Jim Henson (Henson got his break on Jimmy's 1963-1966 TV show). But without question one of the highlights in a life full of 'em was Jimmy's 1965 holiday release, Jimmy Dean's Christmas Card. Not only did the album hit #13 on the Christmas charts but it hit the charts for the next two years, and spawned a hit single, "Yes, Patricia, There Is a Santa Claus," that remains one of the great Christmas novelty tunes of all time. We're serving up a fresh remastering (by Maria Triana at Battery Studios) of this Christmas classic, and adding three non-LP sides (including the single version of "Yes, Patricia") to comprise his complete Columbia Christmas recordings. Photos and liner notes by Joe Marchese complete one heartwarming Christmas package.
