This is a UK compilation, as the title says, of the later King years...

Nowadays the King/Starday material is probably best found on the two 4xCD box sets The Early Starday/King Years, 1958-1961 and The King Years, 1961-1965.

 

For detailed information on the songs/sessions check Gary B. Reid's The Music Of The Stanley Brothers book. For page references, see the Original Release entries.
