Thanks, Mark. Our best guess was The Kingston Trio, but we knew that wasn't right. I appreciate it.

And, at the risk of strumming my own guitar, there's also Greenberg's. But don't tell Mary Garvey I said so.

Aloha,
Mark

Re: Who recorded "Once There Were Greenfields:" I have a reel-to-reel recording ca 1959 by Terry Gilkyson and The Easy Riders,
Rich Dehr and Frank Miller. Inasmuch as they wrote the song,
presumably they were the FIRST to record it.
For a nice write-up on Gilkyson, go to www.elizagilkyson.com.
I think you will recognize other titles therein.
It is a pity that he has fallen from memory. Sic Transit .....

I just got around to checking the Mudcat MIDI of "Greenfields"
and heard "Green Leaves of Summer." TSK!

Also "The Inn Group" [Tom McHenry, John Swalm, Roger Strange and Tom Mayes] on the Folk Promotions label in 1962. Fortunately, out of print.
