Clinch Mountain Echo

Larry Efaw & Ralph Stanley - I Worship You

(????????) 1988

Ralph and Larry Efaw

This was a Gospel cassette which Larry Efaw recorded with Ralph... I haven't been able to find a copy, but it was mentioned in the 'General Store' section of 'Bluegrass Unlimited' (December 1988). The previous month's issue also carried a photo of Larry Efaw presenting Ralph a 'specially-handcrafted clock' in Canal Fulton, Ohio.

I emailed Larry a couple of years ago, and he said that he'd sold the rights to the cassette... and didn't have any copies.

In 2007 Larry Efaw and The Bluegrass Mountaineers released Clinch Mountain Tradition - A Special Tribute To The Stanley Brothers - a CDR featuring Junior Blankenship, Danny Lee Davis, John Rigsby and Steve Sparkman (with Ralph himself singing tenor on one track). This is still available from their website.

If anyone can help provide any details of the 'I Worship You' cassette (or a copy), I'd be very grateful - You can Contact me here...
