Subject: RE: Obit: Ralph Stanley (1927-2016) Another Great Gone
The first time I ever heard bluegrass was a 45 rpm record I picked up at The Funland Arcade in Edmonton, where at the age of about 12 or 13 I'd buy their used jukebox records for 5 for $1. It was THe Stanley Brothers singing The Window Up Above on one side, and THe Wild Side of LIfe on the other. I'd never head anything like it....and I was hooked!   I've been a Stanley Brothers and Ralph Stanley fan ever since.

Rest in Peace.
