Mighty Day: The Chad Mitchell Trio Reunion

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
If there were any liner notes to this album, they might explain that this is a recording of a reunion concert that the Chad Mitchell Trio taped for PBS in 1987, though the copyright date is 1992 and this audio version was issued in 1996. In any case, the trio proves to be in good voice and good humor after 22 years apart, singing many of the songs that its audiences loved in the early '60s, including "The John Birch Society" and "Lizzie Borden."
