Here's a partial (incomplete) record offer commercial for A Country Style Christmas (coming in about less than halfway through), available from Vista Marketing (which also brought you this famed commercial).

The artists featured in this collection (originally released in 1975 by Columbia House) were from within the rosters of Columbia and RCA Records and their respective affiliated labels (ironic, given that both labels are now owned by the same company, Sony Music - as is Monument Records, for which Charlie McCoy - two of whose tracks are on this compilation - recorded at the time).

Featuring 1960's and '70's country legend Connie Smith, whose version of "The First Noel" is included in this collection - as are 29 other recordings including "Deck the Halls" by Chet Atkins, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" by Jimmy Dean, "The Little Drummer Boy" by Ray Price, and "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" and "Christmas Time Is Here Again" by Marty Robbins (snippets of which are heard during the course of this ad) - all on three records and two 8-track tapes.

Ending voiceover by Bud Kelly. (Bumper slide typesetting in IBM Selectric Composer Univers Bold.)

This aired on local Chicago TV on Friday, November 4th 1977 during the 10:28pm to 10:29pm timeframe.
