We’re sure the late Carl Story would be proud of this superb boxed set that includes all of his fine Mercury and Columbia tracks plus 20 of his early Starday recordings. The lavishly packaged set consists of 4 CDs plus an amazing 110 page hard cover book that features a full discography, lots of fine photos, and excellent notes by Colin Escot, with discographical help from Neil Rosenberg and Eddie Stubbs. The set contains over 120 songs (plus a few neat banjo instrumentals featuring Bobby Thompson and Bud Brewster). Story recorded a few non-gospel songs for Mercury and Columbia, including the excellent LOVE & WEALTH, HAVE YOU COME TO SAY GOODBYE and TENNESSEE BORDER, but over 90% of his recorded output was Bluegrass gospel music—with his distinctive falsetto voice he became the leading exponent of this style in the 1940s and 50s.With a band that often included Red Rector, Claude Boone and the Brewster brothers, he brought many Albert Brumley songs into the Bluegrass genre, and was known for his versions of MY LORD KEEPS A REWCORD, FAMILY REUNION, GONE HOME, OLD COUNTRY BAPTISING, ECHOES FROM THE BURNING BUSH, ARE YOU AFRAID TO DIE and many more. This is a wonderful set that every Carl Story fan will enjoy.
