About

The Essential masters collection brings together the best of Ralph Stanley’s recordings for the King and Gusto labels, many of them from the late ’60s, when he was arguably at the peak of his career.

Most of the tracks feature lead singer Larry Sparks, the man generally considered Ralph Stanley’s most effective duet partner after the death of his brother Carter.

The release also features two tracks with Jimmy Martin (lead vocalist for Bill Monroe’s Blue Grass Boys).
