The Stanley Brothers - Vintage Years 1954 - 1956

(Collectors Classics CC-16) 1981


Vintage Years 1954 - 1956
Rear Cover

This German compilation draws on the Mercury era, and duplicates many of the tracks on the earlier Collectors Classics The Stanley Brothers LP.

Nowadays probably the best way to get all the Mercury material 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 41-50 and 71-72.
