|Song Specific Liner Notes|
|The Kingston Trio At Large||ALL MY SORROWS (Guard / Shane / Reynolds) was first heard by Bob Shane in a Los Angeles coffee house. The Trio then became acquainted with Glenn Yarborough's version of the tune as a love song, and in their own adaptation, have kept it as a love story. "It was originally a lullaby," notes Dave Guard, "and possibly a spiritual before that."|

Album: THE KINGSTON TRIO AT LARGE
Just about everybody's favorite B side from the Dave/Nick/Bob era is "All My Sorrows" which has the dual distinction of being one of the best cuts from a great album (AT LARGE) and the flip side of a great single ("MTA.) The Trio borrowed this song from the pre Limeliters repertoire of Glenn Yarborough and turned it into one of the most movingly understated moments that the band ever put on tape. Not long after Dave Guard was claimed by cancer, Lindsey Buckingham did a cover version of "All My Sorrows" for his 1992 album OUT OF THE CRADLE. Acknowledged as one of the geniuses of modern Rock, the former Fleetwood Mac member learned many a guitar lick from Kingston Trio records, and he considered Dave a good friend, as well as a mentor. Said Lindsey "I thought that would just be something nice for him."

first came across this song, a variant of the lullaby
"All My Trials" (recorded by Odetta and Dick
and Dee Dee), in a Los Angeles coffee house. Later they
heard Glenn Yarbrough, lead singer of The Limeliters,
give it a love-song interpretation, and they kept that
approach for their own adaptation. Appropriately, this
intimate version (from The Kingston Trio At Large LP) is
backed by very quiet guitar and bass. "All My
Sorrows" also was recently covered by ex-Fleetwood
Mac member Lindsey Buckingham on his 1992 solo LP Out of
