The show was an embarrasment. Watching a bunch of 60+ year olds who didn't appear to have a learned a new song in 35-45 years.

Glenn Yarborough lip-synching "Baby The Rain Must Fall" was the worst. Did he think we wouldn't notice the missing orchestra and choir of backupo singers?

Now I know that Judy Collins and Roger McGuinn have progressed past what they showed on the show, but you sure couldn't tell.

It was a poorly done appeal to rich and aging pre-boomers and early-boomers.
