Songs Of Love And Tradgedy - Lee Allen

Story Of My Mother
Songs Of Love And Tragedy
By Lee Allen
Jalyn - Dayton, Ohio
JLP 127
Rite Records - Cincinnati, Ohio
Sides #26235 & 26236

From the back cover: Lee Allen, was born in Breathitt County, Kentucky, near Jackson, on June 19, 1946. He grew up with a deep love for and an inspiration to play and sing old-time music. This album speaks for itself, as Lee Allen sings from his heart just the way he feel about songs of love and tragedy. Down to earth mountain singers are hard to find today and for that reason, I gave Lee Allen permission to use the Clinch Mountain Boy on this album, at Lee's request. Lee told me that the Stanley Brothers were always his favorite band and asked to put a picture of the Clinch Mountain Bys on the back of the album. This I also gave him permission to do. Friends, if you like good bluegrass and old-time mountain music, this album is a must for your collection. – Ralph Stanley
