Thomas Stern Charles River Valley Boys - first album (7) Charles River Valley Boys - first album 18 Nov 18

Anyone on the list influenced by the CHARLES RIVER VALLEY BOYS or
"fans" of their work???

I noticed there are some YOUTUBE clips of a 2013 regrouped performances - any information about this? are they still performing ??

In their early years (they formed as a group in 1959 for a performance
at Harvardd, and lasted until late 60's, recorded 4 albums. There
is much info about them on WIKI and other sites - google for latest

Their FIRST album was issued on the UK FOLKLORE label (1962 Bringing in the Georgia Mail, compiled from recordings from WHRB and at Dick Dobell's Jazz Shop), and has been difficult to locate - I note that it has been released on a CD-R by the BRITISH ARCHIVE OF COUNTRY MUSIC (BACM) coupled with their 2nd album (recorded for MOUNT AUBURN records, re-issued on LP twice by PRESTIGE).

BACM - Charles River Valley Boys
