The Stanley Brothers - All Time Greatest Hits

All Time Greatest Hits
CD Tray

This is another cash-in compilation designed to take advantage of Ralph's success with the 'Oh Brother' film.

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.

 

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.
