Boy, if you thought George, Rick and Bill were impressive as the Kingston Trio, wait till you hear George, Rick and Jerry. They are hitting the next level of performance quality. Their choice of songs varied each of the three shows, with some repeats but some new songs in each show. They started with "There's a Meeting Here Tonight" which knocks your socks off. Jerry took lead on a Shel Silverstein song about falling in love with a mermaid. "Power and Glory" blew the place up. "Homeward Bound" (Simon and Garfunkel) was beautiful. "That's What you Get for Loving Me," a coal mining medley starting with "Springhill Mine Disaster" and ending with "Coal Tatoo." And "Where Have all the Flowers Gone," "Lemon Tree," "Early Morning Rain." Wow, they were good. I mean, they were GOOD.
