Overview

While a modern-day listener may find folk music somewhat simple in content and approach, these factors were exactly what made the music so appealing in the late '50s and early '60s. No more than a guitar and a voice were needed to set forth ballads of love and murder. To many youths of the time, the music contrasted sharply with the materialism of their parents following World War II. Without really meaning to, the Kingston Trio spearheaded a revival that took the music way beyond college campuses and Greenwich Village. By the time the group recorded Make Way/Goin' Places, their last two albums with the original trio, they had sold millions of records, toured the country, and appeared on popular television shows. Make Way includes a charged-up version of "Hard Travelin'" and "Hangman," while Goin' Places sets forth lively takes of "Lemon Tree" and "You're Gonna Miss Me (Frankie & Johnny)." All of the group's trademarks -- tight, smooth harmonies, traditional material, and energetic presentation -- govern these sessions. Beware, though: old fans and the young at heart will feel the urge to sing along with "The Jug of Punch" and "This Land Is Your Land," no matter who is in the room. Make Way/Goin' Places is just one of four Kingston Trio combo-CDs offered by Collectors' Choice, and any one will serve as a fine introduction to this folk unit from yesteryear.
