Please rate this album:

This gospel album was recorded between 2-4th May 1962, with George Shuffler on lead guitar and Ralph Mayo on fiddle.

Memories of Mother, Let Me Walk, Lord By Your Side and Harbor Of Love are re-recordings of three of Carter's songs that they originally cut for Mercury.

Two singles were drawn from the sessions: Drinking From The Fountain / Who Will Sing For Me (King 5708) in Nov 1962; and Memories Of Mother / Paul And Silas (King 5754) in May 1963.

The album has also been reissued (Gusto/King SK-805) 1976. Nowadays it is probably best found on The King Years, 1961-1965 4xCD box set.

PS: I only have this album as a Gusto/King reissue, and the cover looks like it's been re-produced from a photo of the original, i.e. a bit blurred.

 

For detailed information on these songs / sessions, check Gary B. Reid's The Music Of The Stanley Brothers book, pages 131-134 and 160-162.
