Thread Name: Revisionist opinion on the Kingston Trio
Subject: RE: Revisionist opinion on the Kingston Trio
I heard the KT, PP&M and maybe Joan Baez about the same time I heard Bob Beers, Pete Seeger, The NLCR, Jean Redpath, Richard Dyer-Bennet and a local fellow who knew dozens of Child ballads.....there was never any choice. The Kingston boys were sort of musical, and they DID lure a few folks down the garden path, but it just seemed to me that the music was supposed to sound 'different', and I knew some folks who were singing it that way, so I never spent a dime on PP&M or KT....I had very few dimes, and they went toward other things.
