The Stanley Brothers - Amazing Grace

A Bluegrass Gospel Collection

(Gusto/King KSCD 5104) 1998


Amazing Grace
CD Tray

This Gusto compilation contains a few tracks from Wayne Raney's Rimrock sessions, that were licensed to Starday and some of the King/Starday material that the Stanleys recorded in late '50s / early '60s.

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.
