This compilation features three tracks by Ken Clark and Don 'Chubby' Anthony with songwriting co-credited to Clark/Anthony.

The LP was reissued in full (Nashvile NLP-2015) 1964, and in a cut-down form with only ten tracks (excluding those with Ken Clark & Chubby Anthony) - (Gusto Power-Pak PO-296) 1977.

There's also a version of Round Town Gals by Roy Russell with Jim Eanes and Allen Shelton from a 1957 radio recording on 'Fiddlin' Time' (Outlet STLP-402) 1978.

One track, Rambler's Ride, can also be heard on youtube.

Rambler's Ride, Chubby's Run and possibly Bluegrass Swing have recently been reissued on CD-R Ken Clark & The Merry Mountain Boys - S/T. See that entry for more details.
