Alive in Concert, Vol. 1

All Music Guide - Cary Ginell
With this live album recorded in Atlanta, the Limeliters introduced their new members, vocalist Red Grammer and accompanist John David. In 1981, Grammer replaced the again-departed Glenn Yarbrough, who finally got his chance to go into semi-retirement and sail around the world.
