Sorry - No Album Image Available

Once again I've only managed to find this as an MP3 RIP... which it transpires is a reissue/repackage of the Mountain Echoes' Hand In Hand With Jesus LP.

As with Sandy Hook Mountain Boys other releases, this is pure Stanley sounding material, produced as close as possible to the pattern laid down by Ralph and Carter.

Buddy Moore sings lead on the a cappella I'll Wear A White Robe, and Purple Robe.

As Charles Caleb Colton said: Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...[1]
