Please rate this album:

This is another cheapo Gusto/King compilation. Of the ten tracks, seven are duplicated with Gusto's Amazing Grace compilation and the remaining three were reissued on the Gusto I'll Meet You In Church Sunday Morning, Bluegrass Salvation and I Saw The Light compilations.

Several of the tracks are from the Wayne Raney Rimrock sessions.

Although nowadays not terribly easy to find, all the Rimrock material is on the In Memory Of Carter Stanley and A Beautiful Life albums, which have been reissued on vinyl, CD and CD-R. For the King/Starday material, it is probably best to pick up 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.
