I lost interest in the Kingston Trio after their "Somethin' Else" album. Not to knock John Stewart, but in one of those bootleg releases, there's a KT concert (1967?) when John tells the audience the trio just got back from Japan.
After saying they just got back from Japan, John tells the audience "it's true."
Hmmmm.... if John Stewart is telling folks the trio just got back from Japan, why would he lie about it?
As for what I listen to most, I'd say the Limeliters, the Brothers Four, Peter Paul & Mary and the Beatles. In fact, just picked up their reissue of "Revolver" produced and remixed by George Martin's son, Giles. Not a bad album at all!
As for trio albums, "Crazy Horse" had the flavor of a Bob, Nick, Dave, Voyle Gilmore production. One of the finest of any KT albums from any era. The CD (dvd as well) of the 45th reunion is wonderful, as is the
"Born at the Right Time" is no slouch either. Both of the FLT cd's are excellent as well.
"Folk Music reunion" with KT )
Sometimes Glen Yarborough , Jim Croce, a few others.
Being "BI" musical, my taste for pop radio stuff went away in the late 60's during what I refer to as the "Jimi Hendrix Era" Not knocking it or any thing else, just not my taste. Pretty much gave up the radio all together by the 70's. Much of the 70's Country stuff caught my attention. I had a steady gig in "Hell"... not the real Hell, but a small town with the same name in SE Michigan. This turned out to be a steady and lucrative weekend solo gig for most of an entire year. They loved Elvis, Rock a billy, and 50's oldies. They also loved the country of the era, which had me learning some stuff from Johnny Paycheck, Cal Smith and others.
For me ... it was Bacharach....
This one was a big favorite ...
