"With a legacy that spans 3 centuries (!) The Stonemans are both puzzling and compelling. Founded around 1920s Hillbilly recording star 'Pop' Stoneman, by the mid-1960s the group comprised Pop and 5 of his 13 children. With a dizzying sound that melded old-timey traditions, sunshine pop and breakneck bluegrass jams, The Stonemans hit the country charts often but are now strangely forgotten. Mini-skirts and mandolins mutate through quasi-psychedelic visions of space (The Five Little Johnson Girls), insurance fraud (Christopher Robin) and suburban delirium (West Canterbury Subdivision Blues), while instrumentals like "Bluegrass Ramble" cut and sear. For the very first time all of their chart hits and many astounding LP cuts are presented on CD, remastered from the original master tapes."
