Thread Name: Chad Mitchell Trio!!!
Subject: RE: Chad Mitchell Trio!!!
Chad Mitchell relates to Barry Flast in an interview, that I noted could be heard on podcast in my note on April 12, 2007, that Bob Bollard did not let the Chad Mitchell Trio release "Blowin in the Wind" because it had the word "death" in it and according to Bollard no song had ever done well with the "D" word in it. Consequently, the Chad Mitchell Trio did not release the song until it was too late.   P.P.& M. released it and scored big! The Chad Mitchell Trio lost faith in Bollard, who had recorded the "Mighty Day on Campus" and "The Chad Mitchell Trio at the Bitter End" Albums which I understand went gold for the Trio.   Apparently that why the Trio was reticient about bucking Bob Bollard. The Chad Mitchell Trio fired Bollard shortly thereafter, left Kapp records and the tutelage of Harry Belefonte, and went to Mercury Records after that.
