This bulk of this album was recorded 16-17 Jul 1964, with Art Stamper on fiddle, Earl Taylor on mandolin/harmonica and George Shuffler on lead guitar. In all eight songs were recorded, and the remainder was filled with three unreleased songs: I See Through You from the July 1961 session for Award Winners At The Folk Song Festival; What About You from the Jan 1961 session for Sing The Songs They Like Best; and Chickie's Old Gray Mule from the May 1962 sessions at the end of their recordings for Good Old Camp Meeting Songs. A fourth 'fill-in' title Your Selfish Heart, was recycled from their King debut The Stanley Brothers And The Clinch Mountain Boys.

The album is a pretty decent effort, and also includes a re-recordng so Our Darling's Gone, which The Stanley's had previously recorded for Rich-R-Tone in late 1947/early 1948 (Rich-R-Tone RRT-435).

Prior to the album's release I See Through You had been issued on a single coupled with Don't Cheat In Our Home Town (King 5869) in Mar 1964. Bully Of The Town / How Bad Do I Feel (King 5920) was also issued in Sep 1964, and a further track, I'm Bound To Ride was also coupled with Don't Step Over An Old Love and released the same month (King 5933) Sep 1964. Later, Rollin' On Rubber Wheels / How You've Tortured My Mind was also issued as a single (King 6005) Sep 1965.

The album cover is taken from a photo shoot which included George Shuffler, but he was cut off for the LP, which also flipped the photo L-R.

The album was reissued (Old Homestead OHCS-323) 1986. Nowadays the material is probably best found on The King Years, 1961-1965 4xCD box set, and The Early Starday/King Years, 1958-1961 4xCD box set.
