The Stanley Brothers
Selected Singles 1953-1960 CD

Musical brothers and Bluegrass music are almost synonymous with each other.
Many of the greats of the genre were siblings - Bill and Charlie Monroe, Jim and Jesse McReynolds, Bobby and Sonny Osborne being three of the most famous family names of this rural variant of hillbilly music.
Among the most famous of all the actual brother acts in bluegrass, Carter and Ralph Stanley are without peer.
In a recording career that began in the late 1940s and that stalled in the mid-60s after Carter Stanley tragically drank himself to death - at which point Ralph began a second, even more successful career that spanned the next half century - the Stanley Brothers recorded and introduced some of the finest bluegrass recordings made by anyone, at any time.
