Product Description:

The Kingston Trio: Dave Guard (vocals, guitar, banjo); Bob Shane (vocals, guitar); Nick Reynolds (guitar, bongos, congas).
Additional personnel: David "Buck" Wheat (acoustic bass).
Recorded live at the Newport Folk Festival, Newport, Rhode Island in 1959. Includes liner notes by Mary Katherine Aldin and Frank Werber.
This is part of the Newport Folk Festival Classics series.
Recorded at the very height of their success, this live set at the 1959 Newport Folk Festival is something of a rarity. The downtown hipsters who were the primary audience of the Newport Folk Fetival tended to look askance at acts like the Kingston Trio (or the Highwaymen or the Brothers Four, etc.), seeing them as commercially-minded sell-outs who would disturb the purity of the folk scene. Interestingly, the trio meets the audience halfway over the course of this 12-song set. Performing only one of their hit singles, the New England-specific "M.T.A."--that's right, not even any "Tom Dooley"--the group otherwise sticks entirely to folk standards. "Remember the Alamo" and "When the Saints Go Marching In" may not win many points for originality, but they're solidly performed sing-alongs. The highlight is their set closer, a spirited rendition of the calypso favorite "The Zombie Jamboree"--they are, after all, named after Jamaica's capital--that seems to go over like gangbusters. Even the hipsters were happy.
