The Stanley Brothers & The Clinch Mountain Boys 1949-52
CD Tray

This German compilation is similar to the later The Complete Columbia Stanley Brothers CD, with both containing all 22 tracks The Stanley Brothers recorded for Columbia, but with an additional alternate takes of The Fields Have Turned Brown and Little Glass Of Wine...

The CD comes with a 20 page booklet by Gary B. Reid, and like the Columbia release, is sequenced in the order the tracks were recorded.

I must admit I didn't realise that this CD had the extra tracks, so I've only just ordered a copy!

Thanks to Chris Wing for the CD scans.

 

For detailed information on these sessions, check Gary B. Reid's The Music Of The Stanley Brothers book, pages 20-29, 32-33, and 36-38.
