(notes by Nat Hentoffl : "We want to make each song live," says Dave Guard of the Kingston Trio, and that they certainly do. For Dave, Bob Shane, and Nick Reynolds succeed remarkably in bringing to vividly entertaining life a wide range of material from many countries-as can be heard in their previous albums,. "The Kingston Trio:' (T 966) and "From The Hungry i" (T 1107). There is also, of course, their tale of Tom Dooley which has. sold over one million records, an indication of how large an audience exists for living folk songs if they're presented with conviction, wit, and a skillful sense of drama.
In previous recordings, Dave, Bob, and Nick performed songs they'd known for a long time. In the present set, the material (with the exception of Scarlet Ribbons) was relatively new to them; and this is an illuminating opportunity to hear how the Kingston Trio approaches fresh material and how imaginatively they adapt it to their own style.
