I can appreciate the fact that the personal friends of the Trio would be affected more by what has happened than a guy like me. If I knew the Trio as intimately as many of y'all, I would feel the same way. But I feel like my dog died.
My apologies for not mentioning Pat and Jimmy. After the Trio disbanded in 1968, I didn't follow The New Kingston Trio. Heck, I didn't even know that Bob Shane had resurrected the group with Pat and Jimmy until years later when it became the BGR Trio. While I continued to play the records of the BND and BNJ Trios, it wasn't until I happened to see the BGR Trio on the Mike Douglas show that I sought out their new albums. It was sometime in the late 70's or early 80's that I saw The Kingston Trio twice when the City of Baltimore had free concerts downtown. While I recognized Bob, I can't think for the life of me who else made up the group at that time. I did say that I was an OLD fan and the memories have slipped away with age.
Since the late 90's, thanks to the Internet, I was able to buy new albums (darned few music stores carried their stuff) and my interest was again peaked. I would check the Official TKT website ever so often and Amazon looking for new albums.
A few days ago, I discovered this sight. I kinda feel like the album title, "Born At The Right Time",i.e., found this site at the right time. Sorry to have wondered so much, Max. Any errors that I made with regard to time frames are due to my tired old brain.
Thanks to Max. Thanks to Wayne for making me feel welcome and thanks to whomever helped me when I screwed up my registration.
The music is forever,
