Description
With no fewer than 18 songs, this retrospective of the late Ralph Stanley's career includes such masterpieces as "Train 45," "Pretty Polly," "Man of Constant Sorrow," "Little Glass of Wine," "Oh Death," "Little Birdie," "Katy Daley," "Clinch Mountain Backstep," "Rocky Island," "Bootleg John," "Dream of a Miner's Child," and more. Among the sacred and gospel tracks are the haunting "I've Just Seen the Rock of Ages" and "Amazing Grace"—here "lined out" in the a cappella style learned in Stanley’s childhood in rural Virginia churches. Collectors will be glad of the bonus track "Single Girl, Married Girl"—a Carter Family song and a favorite of Ralph's late brother, Carter.

"Stanley's grief-blasted mountain-tenor voice, singing a spiritual, can temporarily erase pain, flood the constitution with courage, leave one feeling profoundly alone in the world."—NYTimes
