Western Christmas - Cactus Jim and The Wranglers

Just As The Sun Went Down
Western Christmas
Cactus Jim and The Wranglers
Diplomat Record X 1017

Budget label, Diplomat, spent some money on this cover. The shapes in the white portion of the ornament shape are embossed. I love it that Santa once carried a pistol.

How a tune about soldiers dying on battlefield helps to put a child into the Christmas spirit... I do not know.


  1. LOL! Yes, the kid could listen to that song right before going to bed on Christmas Eve. That's how traditions are started.

  2. Fabulous! I have this one too!

  3. Here’s a link where you can download a freshly digitized and slightly de-clicked version of the "Tex Johnson" variation of this long lost gem! Merry Christmas to all!


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
