together with PAT HORINE and JIM CONNOR had recorded as THE NEW KINGSTON TRIO.
These recordings took place between 1968-1972.
Apparently PAT HORINE (1945-2004) kept many NEW KINGSTON TRIO recordings hidden under his bed,
and upon being discovered, these tapes made their way to BOB SHANE.
After many listens, and obviously very impressed with what he heard, Bob put together 2 CDs dedicated to this little band:
BOB SHANE + PAT HORINE + JIM CONNOR
"The Best Of (1968-1972)".....
> THE NEW KINGSTON TRIO Vol 1 (rel: 2010)
> THE NEW KINGSTON TRIO Vol 2 (rel: 2012)
One of the songs (on Vol 2) "Kiss The World Goodbye" written by Kris Kristofferson, grabbed me by the throat, when a good friend of mine decided to jump off his balcony, 5 years ago.
Here was somebody who kept quoting Bible passages, and kept on telling me to have faith and believe. On October 2nd, 2012, I get a telephone call from his sister Susan, that my friend Richie had committed suicide.
He was 50 years old; no wife, no kids, no girlfriend, no job, and in his time of need and desperation....no Bruce.
