Curly Ray Cline - The Old Kentucky Fox Hunter Plays Gospel

(Old Homestead OHS 70047) 1982


The Old Kentucky Fox Hunter Plays Gospel
Rear Cover Side One Side Two

Recorded on 17th Dec 1983 at Maggard Studios in Big Stone Gap, Va. at the sessions for Ralph's 'Memory Of Your Smile' LP.

This all instrumental album seems to be quite scarce. It features a fair amount of quality lead guitar from Junior Blankenship, which adds variety and even Charlie Sizemore gets to play lead guitar on one track, Little Black Train.

Although Ralph usually sticks to backing on Curly's albums he also provides breaks to Lonley Tombs, Swing Low Sweet Chariot and When The Saints Go Marching In. The Stanley Brothers also recorded Lonely Tombs, but this is the only version with a break by Ralph (mis-titled Lovely Tombs on the cover!).
