Bluegrass generally had lost much of its popularity by the time of these recordings, however, what we have here is The Stanley Brothers in absolutely top form. If you are a fan of the high and lonesome sound, this definitely hits the sweet spot. With stripped down arrangements, it really doesn't get much better than this. Regarding the songs themselves, you may want to note that the great R&B writer and performer Hank Ballard wrote "Finger Poppin' Time," which got lots of air play when he first released it, and the novelty tune "How Far To Little Rock," a real favorite of mine. Hey, what can I say, I love me some novelty songs! (You can, by the way, find the original "Finger Poppin' Time" by searching Hank Ballard.) Also included on this compilation are classics such as "I'm A Man Of Constant Sorrow" (re-popularized in the wonderful Cohen Brothers movie "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?" ), "Rank Stranger," "Steel Guitar Rag" (written by Merle Travis, Leon McAuliffe and Cliffie Stone, and originally popularized by the king of western swing Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys), and "The Wild Side Of Life."

Thanks for the real stuff I wish the whole Starday catalog could be made available. True pioneers of real country. Thanks for Flac.
