KING RECORDS NOTES ABOUT THE STANLEY BROTHERS;
The Stanley Brothers, Ralph and Carter, began their recording career in 1947. They recorded 10 songs for Rich-R-Tone records in Johnson City, Tennessee. They moved on to a recording contract with Columbia records in 1948 and from 1949-1952 they recorded 22 songs for the label. In 1953 they switched over to Mercury Records for five years. In 1958, the Stanley Brothers began recording for Starday/King Records. In the seven years that followed, the Stanley Brothers produced 15 albums of legendary bluegrass music. The songs included in this collection were selected from those vintage recordings. Unfortunately, a rapid decline in Carter Stanley's health resulted in his death on December 1, 1966. He died at the young age of 41. Ralph Stanley decided to carry on the legacy of great bluegrass music, and his efforts have not been wasted. He won his first Grammy award in 2002. At the age of 75, he received "Best Male Country Vocal Performance" for the song "Oh Death". His song gained international notoriety after it was heard in the blockbuster motion picture "O Brother, Where Art Thou". The same night, he also received a Grammy when the movie's soundtrack was awarded "Album Of The Year". That night at the Grammys was a crowning touch to a career that had started so many years ago in the Clinch Mountain area of West Virginia. The old mountain saying "the cream always rises to the top" still rings true today. After so many years of being relatively unnoticed by the masses, Bluegrass Music is not only proving to be timeless, but extremely popular as well.
