I Saw The Light
Rear Cover

This is a 10 track budget gospel compilation from Gusto, with liner notes by Larry Sparks.

Nowadays probably the best way to get all the King / Starday material, is on the two 4xCD set's The Early Starday/King Years, 1958-1961 and The King Years, 1961-1965.

 

For a detailed breakdown and background to these sessions, check Gary B. Reid's The Music Of The Stanley Brothers book, pages 93-96, 102-106, 108-111, 122-125, 140-141, 143-144, 149, 154, 191-194 and 218-219.
