A Great choice from the biggest selling albums...
on 13 May 2011
The folk and pop music group The Kingston Trio helped launch the folk revival of the late 1950s to late 1960s. The group started as a San Francisco Bay Area nightclub act with an original line-up of Dave Guard, Bob Shane, and Nick Reynolds. They rose to international popularity, fuelled by unprecedented sales of long-playing record albums and helped to alter the direction of popular music in America. Their biggest hit albums were: 1958, The Kingston Trio; 1959, from the Hungry (live); At Large; Here We Go Again!; 1960, Sold Out & String Along.

This new compilation with a total running time of approx 101 minutes is a new addition to the One Day Music catalogue with its new slim line packaging and attractive design incorporating photographs and recording dates. The liner notes are by Dennis Turner and emphasise the importance of the Kingston Trio in the history of folk and new age music from America. Both CDs comprise recordings taken from the Capitol period 1958 to 1960. The material in this collection comes mainly from the first 7 albums that the trio recorded. (The Kingston Trio; ...from the Hungry i; Stereo Concert; At Large; Here We Go Again!; Sold Out; String Along).
The sound quality is excellent throughout. This is a stylish release that brings together songs from the peak years of the Kingston Trio and should interest both those with a liking for folk music and those who wish to experience the sound of the Kingston Trio courtesy of One Day Music. Excellent sound and excellent value.
