Overview

The Stonemans have a unique history that actually touches into three different centuries, amazingly enough, and it all hinges on Ernest "Pop" Stoneman, a 1920s hillbilly recording artist who brought his family into the act, and by the middle of the 1950s, the Stonemans (as a recording group) featured Pops and almost half of his 13 children. The group itself was a mixture of folky Americana, bluegrass, and, at times, a spacey fusion of all that and sunshine pop, leading to left-field and kind of curious minor hits like "Tupelo County Jail," "The Five Little Johnson Girls," "Christopher Robin," and "West Canterbury Subdivision Blues." There's not really another group quite like them. This generous single-disc set is drawn from the group's run of Jack Clement-produced albums for MGM between 1965 and 1968, and collects all of their chart entries during this time (including the tracks above), as well as key album tracks, to make the perfect introduction to this enigmatic and woefully unsung American family band.
