Clinch Mountain Echo

The Stanley Brothers - The Stanley Brothers

(Collectors Classics CC1) May 1972


The Stanley Brothers

This German compilation draws on the Stanley Brothers first sessions for Mercury, and includes one cut which had previously only been released on the Japanese The Stanley Brothers & The Clinch Mountain Boys double album.

Nowadays probably the best way to get all the Mercury material, including the aforementioned unreleased cut, is on the 2xCD The Complete Mercury Recordings set.

 

For a detailed breakdown and background to these sessions, check Gary B. Reid's The Music Of The Stanley Brothers book, pages 41-42, 45-51, and 71-73.
