You must have been quite the detective. As for me...more like Watson :>)
: Simply put, WOW! What a great show and
: video! Thank you Dick Risk and Chip Miller
: and all involved, most especially, of
: course, George, Bill, Rick and Paul. What a
: wonderful evening last night of sitting, and
: not only enjoying some beautiful Christmas
: music, but Christmas music by the Kingston
: Trio. THE Kingston Trio!
: I enjoyed every song, end even with a brace
: on, George killed it on the banjo! But the
: highlight of the show for me was George
: singing Mary's Boy Child. It's one of my
: very favorite Christmas songs and it really
: showcases George's beautiful voice. I had
: tears in my eyes by the end of the song. Not
: to take away from Bill and Rick's solos, but
: George just does a wonderful job on the
: One thing that I got a chuckle out of, and
: blame my attention to detail, which probably
: comes from thirty years of police work, was
: at a point in the video, (and correct me if
: I'm wrong) every other shot of Rick had his
: button down collar buttoned, unbuttoned,
: buttoned, unbuttoned. I'm guessing that it
: was a matter of video editing of different
: takes? And if it was, it just amazes me the
: job that was done. Had I not noticed the
: collar, I would never have noticed any
: hiccups in video or audio. But I appreciate
: the fact that all this work was done to make
: such a seamless, wonderful show.
: But all in all, what a great, yet sad
: sendoff to George, Bill, Rick and Paul.
: During the credits, when it showed "The
: Kingston Trio, 2005 - 2017", it looked
: like an obituary or an engraving on a
: tombstone and I got a big lump in my throat.
: Oh, and I'm sorry, I forgot to mention the
: great job Paul did on the bass during the
: show. It sounded great as it always does,
: but somehow, he managed to go above and
: beyond for this one. Thanks Paul!
: So, if you haven't bought this video yet,
: don't put it off. It's one for the ages, and
: will be part of Christmas for me for the
: rest of my life!
