Clinch Mountain Echo

The Stanley Brothers - Collectors Edition, Vol. 6

(Gusto GT-0108) 1983


Collectors Edition, Vol. 6

Vol. 6 of this series, is another disappointing release, with a further three tracks from the Rimrock sessions that produced the A Beautiful Life and Empty Mansion albums, and the balance from the Starday/King back catalogue.

Today, probably the best way to get all the King/Starday material is on the excellent The Early Starday/King Years, 1958-1961 and The King Years, 1961-1965 4xCD sets... Sadly there is no current version in print for the Rimrock material, other than crappy CD-R's.

 

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.
