Clinch Mountain Echo

The Stanley Brothers - Amazing Grace:

Bluegrass Is Timeless

(Gusto/King KG 0336-2) 2003


Amazing Grace

Another bargain basement Gusto compilation, with ten tracks... Two are from the Wayne Raney Rimrock session from December 1965, and were licensed to Starday for the Jacob's Vision LP.

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

The Rimrock material has been reissued on LP, CD and CD-R but isn't terribly easy to find, with the In Memory Of Carter Stanley: An Empty Mansion and A Beautiful Life being the best option to get all the Rimrock tracks.

 

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.
