"Roger Sprung, Lionel Kilberg, and others. Wasn't it those two, along with Bob Carey, who made up the trio that first recorded "Tom Dooley" on a Stinson album, several years before the Kingston's recorded a remarkably similar take on the song?"
No , Sandy, it was Erik Darling, Roger and Bob. Bob Carey was the one who put the "hiccup" in the song which the KT propelled to the "charts". They were the Folksay Trio for Asch-Stinson Records.
Hang down your head Tom (hiccup) Dooley.
