Overview

The two-disc set Clinch Mountain Country is a treasure that amazes and inspires at every turn. Ralph Stanley is one of the true greats of American music. Kicking off with an all-time favorite, "How Mountain Girls Can Love," the set features Stanley's signature clawhammer banjo style and the distinctive mountain harmonies perfected by himself and his brother, the late Carter Stanley. Other guests from the music world include Dwight Yoakam, Marty Stuart, Bob Dylan, Patty Loveless, BR5-49, Rhonda Vincent, Gillian Welch, Laurie Lewis, Junior Brown, Vern Gosdin, Vince Gill, and many others. One of the most poignant tracks is Stanley, the Clinch Mountain Boys, and country & western master George Jones singing "The Window Up Above." The meeting of Stanley and Jones is a monumental moment in music history. Together their voices blend effortlessly on a song that Jones wrote so many years ago. Also significant is the prominence of Ralph II, the man who will carry on the legacy his father and uncle began in the mountains of Virginia. Stanley's high-lonesome vocal style is unlike any other sound, and he is without peer in the world of bluegrass music. This collection of tunes, many written by Carter and/or Ralph, is evidence of the heartfelt, soul-nourishing music the Carters brought out of the western Virginia Highlands and gave to the world. A worthy follow-up to the 1992 two-CD release Saturday Night & Sunday Morning.

Clinch Mountain Country 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

This set reminds me of the first Will the Circle be Unbroken project. Ralph Stanley hit a lot of people's radar with his performance of Oh Death on the O Brother soundtrack. These recording were made a few years before that and find him in duets and trios with many country and bluegrass stars. Despite their high profiles, Stanley's high lonesome wails give the project unity. His duet with Patty Loveless on Pretty Polly is my favorite but there are many fine gospel and Stanley Brothers tunes. I hope to soon purchase the Saturday Night and Sunday Morning set, made about five years before this one.
