The Stanley Brothers - I Just Stood There / Train 45

(King 5933) Sep 1964


I Just Stood There
Train 45

This 7" couples I Just Stood There from the Country Folk Music Spotlight LP with Train 45 from the all instrumental America's Finest Five-String Banjo Hootenanny album.

'Billboard' reported the release as one of their Country & Western 'Programming Specials' in their 15th Aug 1964 edition, but didn't review the single as such.[1]

I Just Stood There was a song by Fred Stryker, which King brought to the band.

Train 45 was a re-recording of a popular tune which The Stanley's had recorded for their King debut LP, The Stanley Brothers And The Clinch Mountain Boys. Ralph would later re-cut it again on his A Man And His Music and Short Life Of Trouble - Songs Of Grayson And Whitter albums.

Both sides of the single can be found on The King Years, 1961-1965 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 169-170, 172-173, 202 and 203-204.
