Clinch Mountain Echo

Other Clinch Mountain Boys' Discographies

Some Clinch Mountain Boys releases

This is nowhere near a definitive listing... I just wanted to start to list some of the other albums that may be of interest, and which were close to hand.

There is some overlap with the 'Collaborations' and 'Other CMB Appearances' section of the Main Ralph discography and as with the Main discography, I'll be adding hyperlinks to pages for individual albums as & when time permits.

Wherever possible I've taken information from my own collection, but have also filled in a few gaps from Charley Pennell's Bluegrass Discography. Thanks also to Todd Gracyk, Chris Wing, Steve Wisner.

If you think I should add anything, please get in touch via the Contact page...

This is still a work in progress so stay tuned!

Sammy Adkins:

This listing of Sammy Adkins releases may not be complete. Many have been are hard to find details about, and even harder to locate copies. Fortunately, you can now get copies of many of them on CD-R via Michelle Wright via facebook. If you know of any other releases, or can provide any missing details, please get in touch via the Contact page!

These have obviously had several releases on different singles/LPs, but the all can be found split between the Bear Family 'Bill Monroe - Bluegrass 1950-58' and 'Bill Monroe - Bluegrass 1950-58' box sets (Bear Family BCD-15423) 1989 and (Bear Family BCD-15-529) 1991.
[1] the Arrow 78 was shown as by 'Estill Stewart 7 Flat Mountain Boys' (the '7' being a typo for '&'). It was reissued on 45 (Starday 45-307) 1957, just credited to 'The Flat Mountain Boys'. I Could Love You All The Time later appeared on 'Early Days Of Bluegrass Vol. 2' (Rounder 1014) 1975; and both sides were included in 'The Best Of King And Starday Bluegrass' 4xCD box set (Gusto/King KG-0952-4-2) 2004.

[4] Ralph Rinzler arranged for Jack Cooke to play bass on the sessions for this album in Baltimore. In addition to playing bass, Jack apparently sang baritone on one cut Life Is Like A Mountain Railway.

2006
NB: I'm told that (1) and (2) feature Wayne Lewis. According to Neil Rosenberg / Charles K. Wolfe's "The Music Of Bill Monroe" (p.201), Wayne played in a band called The Kentuckians who recorded "an EP for the Jalyn label and an LP with Paul 'Moon' Mullins". It seems that (1) and (2) were later reissued by a band member as a CD-R EP, but I'm not sure whether the Rosenberg/Wolfe text refers to an earlier vinyl EP reissue.
[17] includes an unreleased Bill Monroe live Gospel album from the Cathedral Caverns near Huntsville Ala. 4th July 1982. (Needless to say all the Bill Monroe Bear Family box sets are 'must haves', but I've only listed this one as it includes this previously unreleased album.)

[8] I suspect this was a cassette release, with a similiar 7" EP issued at around the same time. It was reissued on CD (Freeland Recording Co. FRC-CD-657) 1998.
[11] George Shuffler guests on this, along with Steve Kaufman, Robin Kessinger and Wayne Henderson.
[13] is a CD of guitar duets including one track (Nine Pound Hammer) which includes George Shuffler.

There may have been another unreleased album recorded between [8] and [9]. I remember seeing an interview with Ralph II on youtube in 2016, a couple of months or so before his father died, and I'm sure he mentioned that there was a new album which the record company hadn't released and was hopefully coming out soon.... but I can no longer find the clip.
