Columbia Sessions Vol. 2
Rear Cover

As with the earlier Japanese Stanley Brothers Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 compilations, this and the Rounder Vol. 1 LP contain all the material cut by The Stanley Brothers for Columbia.

Vol. 2 contains the last eleven tracks and is sequenced in the order they were recorded. The album comes with detailed liner notes by Gary B. Reid and Marian Leighton.

More recently all the Columbia material can be found on The Complete Columbia Stanley Brothers CD.

 

For a detailed breakdown and background to these sessions, check Gary B. Reid's The Music Of The Stanley Brothers book, pages 26-30, 32-33 and 37-39.
