Not the original, but very good
This is NOT a remaster of old recordings, but a new one made by the latest incarnation of this famous trio. The original RCA albums made by Lou Gottlieb, Alex Hassilev and Glenn Yarbrough are not yet available for download. That's a shame because they're terrific, but CDs are available.
Now, having grown up listening to the the original Limeliters, it's difficult to listen to someone else using the trio's name and doing some of the same material almost note for note, because they just don't sound the same. But that's the nature of changing personnel, and it shouldn't have any bearing on an individual album. And by itself, this is a good album, carrying on the tradition of the original Limeliters. Good for them!
Limeliters, Right From the Start
If you like 1960's semi classical folk with a fair complement of humor tossed in (e.g. "Have some madira, m'dear"), then you should enjoy this album. It is not the pure folk of a Woody Guthrie nor the more pop folk style of the Kingston Trio, but something in between which is very pleasing. Despite the digital remaster being released in October 2007, this recording dates back to the early 1960's.
I saw these guys in concert and I loved them. I got this CD and I loved it. It rocks. A MUST BUY!
