This German compilation draws on the Stanley Brothers period with Mercury. It was also issued in Canada (Jewel LPS-650) 19??.

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 43-44, 49-51, 57-58, 60-61, 64, 66-68, 71-74, 78, and 81-83.
