This chapter describes the Stanley Brothers’ recordings for the Rich-R-Tone label, run by Hobart Stanton. For their recording sessions, Stanton brought the brothers into the studio of rival Bristol radio station WOPI, which was located a few blocks from WCYB. The Rich-R-Tone recordings hold special significance because they identified the roots of the Stanley Brothers’ music.
