The Stanley Brothers - How Mountain Girls Can Love / Daybreak In Dixie

(King S-7 1618) c1961


How Mountain Girls Can Love
Daybreak In Dixie

This is one of at least four 7" 33⅓ stereo singles that were taken from the Stanley Brothers' In Person LP.

As How Mountain Girls Can Love had to be re-recorded in Feb 1961 for the stereo release of the In Person album, and their next secular album came out in Nov 1961 (Sing The Songs They Like Best), I'd guess that these stereo singles must have come out sometime in between.

In Gary B. Reid's book The Music Of The Stanley Brothers (p. 113) he says that the format was an experiment by King Records. It has also been suggested that the singles were created for juke box use.[1]

I don't have a copy of this one, so can't say whether the version of Daybreak... is with or without the overdubbed guitars.

The stereo version of How Mountain Girls Can Love can be found on the The King Years, 1961-1965 4xCD set and both dubbed and undubbed versions of Daybreak In Dixie are likewise on The Early Starday/King Years, 1958-1961 4xCD set.

 

For a detailed breakdown and background to the Stanley's sessions, check Gary B. Reid's The Music Of The Stanley Brothers book, 111-114, 125-126, 150 and 155.
