    The Stanley Brothers 50 years ago
    Posted By Richard Thompson On 2nd November 2008

    In the course of two days just over fifty years ago, the Stanley Brothers began an era that was to last on-and-off right through and beyond Carter Stanley’s premature passing on December 1, 1966.

    Carter and Ralph along with the Clinch Mountain Boys of the day began their association with King Records of Cincinnati, Ohio, on September 30 with their first recording session after signing for the label earlier in the year.

    The sessions on that date and the following day produced all 12 recordings that ultimately came out on the eponymous LP album with the catalogue number King 615.

    Hey, wasn't these the guys from Beverly Hillbillies?

    Scrugs or something like that?

    It seems like all bluegrass music performers dressed similarly 40-50 years ago. Nowadays its a lot more casual.
