The Stanley Brothers - Hymns And Sacred Songs Vol. 3

(King EP-455) c1959


EP Front Sleeve
Rear Cover

This 7" EP was the third of three releases, each of which featured four tracks from the Stanley's Hymns And Sacred Songs LP.

The EP comes housed in a card cover, with B&W print on front and rear. The colour front picture is printed on a separate piece of paper and stuck over the top.

Not all copies came with the picture sleeve cover, judging by the number of EPs for sale with generic bags... but this is another one I don't have a copy of, so if anyone can provide better images of the cover, or scans of the labels, please get in touch via the Contact page - Many thanks!

All four tracks can now be found on The Early Starday/King Years, 1958-1961 4xCD box set.

 

For a detailed breakdown and background to the Stanley's sessions, check Gary B. Reid's The Music Of The Stanley Brothers book, pages 94-95 and 140-141.
