The Kingston Trio: Nick Reynolds, Bob Shane, John Stewart.
#16 originally released on Capitol (1871). SUNNY SIDE! originally released on Capitol (1935).
The pairing of these two albums makes sense in that they followed each other very closely in recording date (early/middle 1963) and also in the choice of material ("Desert Pete" from Sunny Side! was a conscious attempt to emulate the success of "Reverend Mr. Black" from Kingston Trio #16). The strength of Kingston Trio #16 more than makes up for the weakness of most of the songs from Sunny Side!, and it is best to think of this CD as Kingston Trio #16 with 11 bonus tracks. ~ Bruce Eder
