Max, of all my Kingston Trio records, the one that means the most to me is: "Something Special"
Reason being, waaaaay back in July 1962, when I telephoned Capitol Records of Canada in Montreal,
asking what the latest album of The Kingston Trio was...the nice lady on the phone told me "Something Special"....
>>> "Just Got Released Today" Brucester
ps: terrific photo of John Stewart + Nick Reynolds + Bob Shane (taken in Hawaii)
You're right about the bass players. Allan Shaw's book confirms it.
The sight of that album makes me sooooooo
One of the best covers ever.
I still have my stripped shirt that's very similar.
A great time.
I loved this album.... Still do.
One More Town was my favorite Trio song forever.
Probably still is.
I too love this album. One More Town, Away Rio and Pulling Away are songs i could listen to forever. Raises a question that has been with me for years: Why were these great songs never arranged for any of the many symphony orchestras with whom the Trio performed over the years?" Heard Bob Haworth do One More Town as a solo once in Blue Ash, Ohio (no orchestra) but that was about it.
