Cliffie Stone, was a connoisseur of the Double Bass, sang, and he was one of Capitol Records most essential personnel for recording sessions and musical arrangements. To many the multi- award winning Stone is unknown, and this album explores the impact he had upon music and his legacy. The album covers the years 1947 through to 1958 and is predominantly in the Country Boogie style with a smattering of Rock 'n' Roll and some electrifying instrumentals. Stone's roots were in Country and Western and his musical skills have embellished countless recordings throughout his career.The presence of the 300 pounds in weight Stone in the studio or on recordings is immeasurable. He was the leader of five bands, formed his own record and publishing companies, appeared on networked televised music shows and his gregarious personality brought out the best of every musician he performed alongside. Eight of the titles feature Stone as the named artist and the remaining twenty two have him involved in the recordings and additionally the publishing through his music company. The cr?me de la cr?me of artistry based on the west coast utilised his skill and the array of artists is mouth-watering and includes; Merrill Moore, Jimmy Bryant, Speedy West, Tex Ritter, Tennessee Ernie Ford, and Merle Travis aka Shug Fisher. Cliffie Stone was inducted into; the Academy of Country Music Pioneer (1972), the Country Music DJ Hall of Fame (1979), the Western Swing Society Hall of Fame (1987), the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Hollywood Walk of Fame (both in 1989).
