Subject: RE: Revisionist opinion on the Kingston Trio
We all climb the mountain from different sides. If KT or PPM or the Limelighters got you interested in folk, why fuss? The Weavers' arrangements always excited & impressed me; I still give credit for that even after hearing more "authentic" versions of stuff they did. I think I said this before on another KT thread, but you've gotta be ready. If the first folker I ever heard had been John Jacob Niles, I would have run, not walked, to the nearest exit. Now I can appreciate him. Well, for about one song, anyway.
