Description
This is a new vinyl pressing of Sturgill Simpson's first album, High Top Mountain. All but the last two tracks (Ray Cline/Ralph Stanley & Steven Fromholz) were written by Sturgill, as he weaves bluegrass-tinged tales of heavy struggle, hard work in a coal mine, and ponders what rhymes with Bronco.

The record is named after a cemetery near Jackson, Kentucky where many of his family are buried.

The album was produced by Dave Cobb and recorded in Nashville. Sturgill is on lead vocals, acoustic guitar and Telecaster, Hargus "Pig" Robbins on piano, Chris Powell, drums, Robby Turner, steel guitar throughout & bass on tracks 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, Brian "Freedom Eagle Bear" Allen, bass on tracks 4, 6, 9, 11, 12, Bobby "Diamond Bob" Emmett on organ and mellotron with Leroy Powell, steel guitar on tracks 6 and 9 plus backing vocals on track 6 and Dave Cobb, 12 string electric guitar on track 7.

Label: High Top Mountain
