The Stanley Brothers - 16 Greatest Gospel Hits

(Gusto GT-0016) 1978


16 Greatest Gospel Hits

I don't have a copy of this compilation, which is one of many repackages Gusto have made of the King/Starday material...

It's curious, that the final track is not by The Stanley Brothers but is taken from Ralph's second King solo album, Over The Sunset Hill... Also the front cover photo is from the same photo-shoot as the Mountain Music Sound Of The Stanley Brothers and The Famous Song Hits Of The Stanley Brothers, Good Old Camp Meeting Songs and Starday Jacob's Vision releases.[1]

The album was reissued on CD (Hollywood HCD-126) 1987 and (Gusto GT-2018-2) 200?.

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 94-95, 102-105, 108-111, 125-126, 128-132, 140, 143-144, 149, 155, 158, 160-161, 176-180, 210-211.
