>>> HAPPY + HEALTHY 2018 TO ALL <<<
As most of you know, I had asked George Grove to sell me his solo album: "In The Middle Of A Life".
Julie + I used to listen to this CD quite often, at home and/or in the car. Somehow, someway, George Grove's terrific album got lost or stolen.
Granted, the guy who stole "In The Middle Of A Life" had terrific taste in music !!! (hahaha)
Anyhow, here on Rick Daly's Folk U.S.A. Message Board, I had asked George if I could buy his CD directly from him. He sent me an e-mail with the info I needed in order to get hold of the album.
Fast Forward: I GOT IT TODAY !!!
George Grove also wrote me a lovely note which I am going to frame and hang it up in my office along with all my KINGSTON TRIO PICTURES + ALBUM COVERS !!!
=> THANK YOU, GEORGE GROVE
Rick Daly knows this to be true. I am a hardcore original + semi-original KINGSTON TRIO fan. I have always worshipped...
BOB SHANE + NICK REYNOLDS + DAVE GUARD + JOHN STEWART.
Due to the recent fiasco which ended up with the betrayal and backstabbing and total discard for KT members GEORGE GROVE + BILL ZORN + RICK DOUGHERTY....I had a chance to revisit this "post-67" rendition of THE KINGSTON TRIO, and I've come to the conclusion these guys were very good.
All 3 guys are professional musicians who were gifted with loads of talent and they were top-notch entertainers.
GEORGE + BILL + RICK were LOVED by KINGSTON TRIO FANS !!! This explains the pain and the suffering and the outbursts by Rick Daly, Sue, John Birchler, Sandy Greenberg, and so many of you.
I just wanted to thank GEORGE GROVE for giving us KINGSTON TRIO FANS 40 years of his life to performing and
shmoozing (sp?) with the fans either backstage or at Fantasy Camp.
You can teach somebody how to sing or how to play guitar or how to play banjo, sure.
But you can't teach somebody how to care or to give a damn about other people or to have CLASS.
GEORGE GROVE embodies all of this spirit. He cares, he is reliable, he is a class act, he is a fantastic human being.
Thank you George for your CD you sent me.
Thank you for those kind words you wrote me.
But most of all....
THANK YOU FOR BEING YOU !!!
