A superb 10-song budget collection of traditional songs and ballads from bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley.

In an unbelievable career that has spanned nearly seven decades, Dr. Ralph Stanley has carried his time-tested music all over the world. Although he is rightfully considered one of the pillars of bluegrass music, Stanley prefers to describe his own style as "old-time mountain music." Known for both his singing and his banjo picking, Ralph Stanley has kept alive traditional songs and styles that sound as "old as the hills."

The songs and ballads featured on this collection are traditional favorites that have been sung throughout the Appalachian mountains for generations. This collection features classics such as "Little Maggie," "Dad's Old Rocky Field," and "Pretty Polly." These are truly treasures from the "deep, rolling hills of Virginia."
