This is the modern Country s founding fathers first real 12 album - albeit an afterthought, after the brothers had already signed up with Capitol Records - and in many ways remains their greatest. And what a glorious collection it is: if you are sad, this music will cheer you up, if you are sick, you will get well, and if you are dead, well, sorry, there s no cure for that yet , but you might still feel a little better after hearing the Brothers harmonize their way through these 12 CW jewels. The Louvins sing all originals on this one. A piece of history of modern Americana, if ever there was one. If you ever wondered where The Everly Brothers, Simon and Garfunkel or Gram Parsons came from, seek no further. This is it.

Track listing: The Get Acquainted Waltz / Weapon Of Prayer / They ve Got The Church Outnumbered / Do You Live What You Preach / You ll Be Rewarded Over There / I ll Live With God / I m Changing The Words To My Love Song For You / Robe Of White / Great Atomic Power / Insured Beyond The Grave / Gospel Way / Sons And Daughters Of God

CONDITION:

THE RECORD

IMPORTANT NOTE: unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded we grade records under the strong, diffuse room light or discrete sunlight

a WE GRADE THE VINYL AS EXCELLENT. This is one of those albums that are somewhat difficult to grade. It is somewhere between VG and NEAR MINT, just a notch below NEAR MINT. A few light abrasions ARE visible, but they are extremely shallow, superficial and only moderately visually distracting nothing significant .For the most part, the vinyl looks impeccable without any MAJOR visual flaws or imperfections. Much of the original luster is intact, and the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new.

b The record has a deep groove an indent in the label about 1/2-inch from the edge of the label, which on SOME labels is associated with very early or first pressings .

c True Stereo copies of this album are NOT known to exist.

d Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior, digital recording

COVER THIS IS THE ORIGINAL, LAMINATED, GLOSSY COVER :

COVER IS STRONG NEAR MINT IT LOOKS AS IF IT WERE MOTHBALLED FOR THE PAST 65 YEARS: A TRULY AMAZING SPECIMEN, PRACTICALLY BEGGING TO BE FRAMED

The following flaws or imperfections are noted on the cover:

- Cover has JUST A HINT of ring wear BARELY VISIBLE On the scale from 1 to 10 1 being the least, and 10 being the most severe , we assess the severity of ring wear as 1. VISIBLE ON BACK SIDE ONLY

- Cover has a small quality control inspection stamp on the back panel BARELY VISIBLE, ALMOST COMPLETELY FADED

NO OTHER VISIBLE FLAWS OR IMPERFECTIONS ON THE COVER
