The Statler Brothers’ brand of schmaltzy, barbershop gospel has its place and, with 15 million albums sold, its fans. But these guys aren’t really selling music-they’re hawking nostalgia. And not even well-crafted nostalgia. The songs on their latest album Home run the usual Statler gamut of situations: lost opportunity, long-ago love, and sweet memories; there’s not a single moment when they don’t pull the shortest emotional strings, from talking to dead fathers to apologizing to aging mothers. The Statlers are fast becoming the musical equivalent of door-to-door Bible salesmen. D
