The Stanley Brothers were an American bluegrass duo of singer-songwriters and musicians made up of brothers Carter Stanley (1925–1966) and Ralph Stanley (1927–2016). Ralph and Carter performed as The Stanley Brothers with their band, The Clinch Mountain Boys, from 1946 to 1966. Ralph kept the band name when he continued as a solo artist after Carter's death, from 1967 until his own death in 2016.

The Stanley Brothers were an American bluegrass duo made up of brothers Carter and Ralph Stanley.

The Stanley Brothers (Carter Stanley, 1925-1966, and Ralph Stanley, 1927-2016) were an American bluegrass duo originally hailing from Dickenson County, Virginia. The family soon moved to McClure, Virginia, where their parents worked a small farm in the Clinch Mountains.

Album · 1996 · 22 Songs. The Stanley Brothers, along with The Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, and The Blue Sky Boys, were amongst a handful of seminal performers whose recordings would come to define Country music in the twentieth century. They hailed from McClure Virginia, nestled amongst the gorgeous Clinch Mountains whose inhospitable ridges and valleys served as home to countless early country performers.

I have owned two previous Stanley Brothers albums on CD, as well as one on LP. The latter was 16 Greatest Hits, which frankly wasn't a very good collection. The two albums on CD, however, were both extraordinary. Angel Band: The Classic Mercury Recordings is a collection of the Stanley Brothers recordings from the mid-fifties that shows them at the height of their genius. Equally fantastic is the Complete Columbia Recordings. Both of these show the Stanley Brothers at their greatest. Frankly, it is hard to imagine this album ever being superseded. If you love the Stanley Brothers - or even if you don't but want to know more - this is the hands down the album by them that you most need to own. American music just doesn't get any better than this.
