GUEST,Larry Saidman The Kingston Trio is Releasing a NEW CD (21) RE: The Kingston Trio is Releasing a NEW CD 18 Mar 12


Bonzo3legs: No need to get offended by my question.

In asking it I was actually hoping for an intelligent and informative answer, not a disparaging remark.

I did follow the Kingston Trio (with mixed feelings) through the 60's, and even saw one of their last concerts (in the late 60's...with John Stewart) and enjoyed it.

But the question does come up with any group is when is the use of the original name still an act of integrity, and when is it a way to give people who would otherwise be 'unknowns' undeserved (or maybe deserved) publicity?

I suspect that an argument could be made either way w. the Kingston Trio because of the involvement of Bob Shane and their 'pride' in selecting the songs the same way the original Kingston Trio did.

In actuality I am interested in giving a listen to the new album, primarily because of a John Stewart song that I'm not familiar with.
