Close By (Album Version) by The Stanley Brothers. The Stanley Brothers were great during the early '50s, but the juggernaut of rock-n-roll led by Elvis Presley, almost "starved them out", as Ralph put it in his memoirs. Their rendition of "Blue Moon of Kentucky" is on this album, something Bill Monroe urged them to do in response to the phenomenon of Elvis. It flopped, must like Bill Monroe's re-recording of it! When Mercury the contract ran out in 1958, they were dropped. They would then sign on with Starday and King Records, with some of their most memorial recordings yet to come.
