Thread Name: Revisionist opinion on the Kingston Trio
Subject: RE: Revisionist opinion on the Kingston Trio
I liked them well enough and still do, but the group that got to me first was the Chad Mitchell Trio. They did some trad, but they did some wonderfully humorous social commentary.

I don't think that anyone can deny any of these groups and people their rightful place in bringing folk to a new generation and they were all pretty fine musically. So I don't listen to them much anymore, but their influences were huge on most of us.
