Clinch Mountain Echo

The Stanley Brothers - The Stanley Brothers

(Collectors Classics CC2) 1973


The Stanley Brothers
Rear Cover

This German compilation draws on the Stanley Brothers period with Mercury, and includes two cuts 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 cuts, 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 50-51, 57-58, 60-64, 66-69, 72-74, 78, and 81-83.
