rich r The 3D's folkgroup from the 50's? (4) RE: The 3D's folkgroup from the 50's? 31 Dec 98


Chris,

I saw the group in concert while in college in Naperville , Illinois. Great show they put on at the time ( or maybe I was starved for entertainment and not too critical). Below is a response to a query about a month ago referring to the album that you mentioned. I still have that record as LP. Recently I ran across 2 other albums of theirs in a used record store. I bought one "I Won't Be Worried Long". The other was a collection of what might best be called Sunday School songs that I did not buy. If you have specific questions about the albums that are not of general interest to others you can e-mail me directly from the member list

"Gunga Din" - early Jim Croce RE: 28-Nov-98 ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sorry, not that one, but I am familiar with "Gunga Din" as recorded in the mid 60's by a Utah based trio, The Three D's. Their most interesting album was "New Dimensions in Folk Songs" (CApitol T2171) on which they set a number of poems to music. Besides "Gunga Din" there was "Jabberwocky" (Lewis Carroll), "The Vinegar Man" (Ruth Comfort Mitchell), "Crayon Box" (derived from Colors by Christina Rossetti), Annabel Lee (Edgar Allan Poe), The Highjwayman (Alfred Noyes), Soft Rain (Sara Teasdale), Richard Cory (Edward Arlington Robinson), "Charge of the Light Brigade" (Tennyson), Riddling Knight (Anon.). It would be interesting to know hw the tunes varied or were similar. The Three D's version of Highwayman, is quite different from Phil Och's. Likewise their version of Annabel Lee and one recorded by Joan Baez are also different.
