The Stanley Brothers - Hymn

(Righteous PSALM 23:54) 2011


Hymn

This is a UK reissue/repackage on the Cherry Red subsidiary 'Righteous' label, of the Hymns And Sacred Songs and Sacred Songs From The Hills albums. I suspect that it was issued to take advantage of the 50 year expiration of recording copyright,[1] but could be wrong.

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.
