Thread Name: Revisionist opinion on the Kingston Trio
Subject: RE: Revisionist opinion on the Kingston Trio
I loved the Kingston Trio, PPM and Dylan (early 60's), the Limelighters, the Chad Mitchell Trio because they were cosynchronous (hey Amos! I think I made up a word!) with the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem. I started litening to them all at the same time, loved them all, and followed the ones who tore my heart right out - the CB & TM. They - along with the others - The Weavers, Pete, Odetta, Paxton, Doc, Big Bill B, the Dubliners are the reason I'm a professional performer today. God Bless 'em all!
