Album Review

The Kingston Trio (Dave Guard, Nick Reynolds, Bob Shane) was the biggest folk group in the world between 1957 and 1963, and while detractors questioned the group's authenticity, there is no denying that the trio's reconfigured versions of folk gems like "Tom Dooley" (a huge commercial smash in 1958) helped pave the way for Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, and the other stars of the so-called folk revival in the early '60s. By 1967, however, in the wake of rock & roll and the Beatles, the Kingston Trio called it quits. Bob Shane reformed the trio in 1972, this time with George Grove on banjo, and the group has been intermittently active ever since, most recently with guitarist Bob Haworth joining Shane and Grove. The Shane/Grove/Haworth lineup is the one featured on Tom Dooley and Other Hits, an edited version of a live show recorded on June 9, 1986, at the Crazy Horse Saloon in Los Angeles. Other than adding more instrumentation (Ben Schubert on viola, Cary Black on bass, Frank Sanchez on percussion), the "new" Kingston Trio does essentially the same show it was doing 30 years earlier, centered around the hits "Tom Dooley," "Tijuana Jail," and "Greenback Dollar." This same set has been released on Compendia as Greatest Hits in 2005, and the full show has been released under the title Live: Best of the Best.

The Kingston Trio were one such group, transforming folk music into a hot commodity and creating a demand — where none had existed before — for young men (sometimes with women) strumming acoustic guitars and banjos and singing folk songs and...
