This Various Artists bluegrass compilation includes one Stanley Brothers' banjo tune, which is listed as Fire On The Strings, but is actually just the Starday recording of Holiday Pickin' which the Stanleys recorded in 1958.

The album was also issued in the UK (London HA-B 8117) 1963.

Holiday Pickin' can be found on the 4xCD set The Early Starday/King Years, 1958-1961.
