Glenn Yarbrough owns this song and when I began to buy their albums (on Elektra & RCA Victor),
I came to realize that as the acknowledged leader and spokesman for THE LIMELITERS....
=> Nobody equalled Louis Gottlieb
Yes I know ~> Dave Guard was inspired by Louis Gottlieb and studied Lou's stage banter....
and Dave was pretty good, no question....but Lou Gottlieb had something extra !!!
And yes, Paul Stookey, being a professional comedian, also had command of an audience....
when PETER PAUL & MARY performed.
BUT BUT BUT ~> having said that....
=> All eyes were on MARY TRAVERS
and since I wear glasses for "distance"....I had 4 eyes on her !!!
