2 LPs on 1 CD: IN PERSON (1962)/CROSS-COUNTRY CONCERT (1963).
Principally recorded at Vanderbuilt University, Nashville, Tennessee on February 19, 1962. Originally released on Columbia (8628).
Producer: Irving Townsend.
Recorded in Hollywood, California on November 19, 1962. Originally released on Columbia (8746).
Excellent and very logical pairing of two classic LPs on one CD -- both were recorded in concert and feature the group in good form, singing beautifully and presenting generally light-hearted folk standards ("Winken, Blinken & Nod," etc.), along with the group's one big hit, "Greenfields," in what is probably its best released version. A fond and spirited look back at folk music as entertainment, and potentially a far more rewarding look at the group than either its greatest-hits or best-of compilations. ~ Bruce Eder
