Yes, I've seen other Playhouse 90 episodes on DVD being offered, but not "Rumors of the Evening". Too bad that the Kingston Trio, with all their record sales back in the late 50's & early 60's, including 5 of those LPs reaching the #1 spot on Billboard's Top Selling Album charts, always seem to get snubbed.
The Kingston Trio have to be the most underrated vocal band in our country! If you don't believe me, check out all the newly reissued vinyl albums out there. Tons of artists, including Peter Paul & Mary (on 180 gram, no less). No Kingston Trio.
Paul and Peter -
I agree with you 100% on this, but I would like to point out an important exception, one that I mentioned at the time five years ago and that for me just about trumps most other omissions.
In 2016, Capitol Records announced that for its 75th anniversary in 2017 it would re-release on vinyl and in the original packaging the 75 LPs it considered the most significant in its history.
One of those 75 was Capitol T996, The Kingston Trio.
The list, appearing in the article linked below, is predictable in most ways - four Beatles albums out of the 75, plus solo albums from each Beatle, four from Sinatra, two from The Beach Boys. From gross sales figures if nothing else, these are understandable.
But two from The Band? Anything from The Knack at all??? Katy Perry????
Les Paul practically invented the modern post-WWII record industry (highlighted in the rerun I saw again recently of Ken Burns' Country Music documentary), and he and Mary Ford get one. Neil Diamond, Peggy Lee, James Taylor, Miles Davis - all get one.
I think it may well be that the early middle aged folks who tend to climb high enough on corporate ladders to make decisions like these just don't know much about music.
However - at least they figured out that the KT was one of Capitol's most important acts, even if they don't get how important.
And of course I ordered one of this T996 reissues, which I have handled like a baby. It is a spectacularly perfect reproduction of the first album.
