Album Review

Like the Weavers before them, the Kingston Trio set the pace for the folk revival of the late '50s and early '60s. Bands like the Highwaymen, the New Christy Minstrels, and Peter, Paul & Mary were inspired by the group's complex harmony, song choices, and general sunny disposition. The Kingston Trio, the band's first studio effort, unleashed the smash hit "Tom Dooley" upon an unsuspecting world. The record garnered a Grammy, sold six million copies, and stayed on the charts for almost four years. To put it plainly, Dave Guard, Nick Reynolds, and Bob Shane created quite a stir. Together, these three young men sang pleasant harmony to reinterpret folk classics like "Hard, Ain't It Hard," "Sloop John B.," and "Little Maggie." They also had an affinity for Mexican folk songs like "Banua" and "Santo Anno." The second LP, ...From the "Hungry I," captures the band live, singing vibrant versions of "Tic, Tic" and "They Call the Wind Maria." Because of the acoustic arrangements and professionalism of the band, this live performance easily matches the quality of the group's studio work. The difference lies in the humorous introductions, interaction with the audience, and enthusiastic applause. ...From the "Hungry I" and The Kingston Trio make good companions, especially since their original running lengths were between 30 and 35 minutes. With the four bonus tracks, the album runs 73 minutes.

In the history of popular music, there are a relative handful of performers who have redefined the content of the music at critical points in history -- people whose music left the landscape, and definition of popular music, altered completely. 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 folk-like novelty...
