Wow! What a great find. I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes having just watched it. A beautiful tribute to our guys. My heroes. Thanks Lord for the Kingston Trio. There were none better. And thanks MTABob for posting this.
I always enjoy looking at tributes fans of the Kingston Trio put up on YouTube. Probably nothing new here for most and one or two things may be historically wrong. But it was a nice way to spend twenty minutes.
What Rick says above. Except for the fact that George Grove should get a bit more than a nod for keeping the group going (the narrator does, after all, remark how central to the group's sound the banjo was) - it's about as good a sixteen minute acknowledgement of who the KT was and what they accomplished. Great find, MTABob. I'd add that having positive comments on the quality of the KT arrangements from Milt Okun - a professional's professional who knew music like few others involved in the folk resurgence - was especially satisfying.
