Subject: RE: Kingston trio--a place in history
I suppose groups like the KT or PP&M could be considered "Homogenized." But It was groups like those that sparked an interest in folk music for me. Guys like Phil Ochs & The New Lost City Ramblers.

Granted,once I'd discovered the more traditional artists,the transformation was swift.

But I'll still bring out the KT's version of Tom Dooley on the occasional campfire sing,just because that's the one that most folks remember & can sing along with.
