Evening With The Kingston Trio
(Folk Era Records FE2064CD)
|The following LINER NOTES are much as they appear in the CD booklet:|
Lightning may not strike the same place twice, but the Kingston Trio sure did! Following Dave Guard's departure from the group, many fans feared that the trio couldn't keep going at all, let alone continue to turn out hit records. But how wrong they were. Not only did John Stewart's mello voice compliment the distinctive vocals of Bob Shane and Nick Reynolds, but he fit in beautifully in other respects as well. Frank Werber, the Trio's manager said, "He's extremely proficient on banjo. He's tall, young and good looking. We retained the image but brought in a fresh, new personality."
The Trio retained the ability to turn out hit records too! Within weeks after John's first public performance with the Trio, they recorded "Where Have All The Flowers Gone," and it quickly headed toward the top of the charts. In many respects it seemed as though nothing much had changed but, in actuality, it was the change that enabled the trio to continue.
put his finger on it in using the words, "fresh and
new." Once again the group projected an image of
freshness and vitality. Nowhere is that more evident than
in this live concert recording made early in 1962. The
excitement that the Kingston Trio demonstrated in live
performance is again captured here. Some may be
disappointed that this recording is monophonic, but as
such it is historicly more accurate, as the audiences
always heard the Trio's live performances in mono.
Listening closely, you can hear them darting into and
away from the microphone for solos and grouping around it
for harmonies. More importantly, the freshness and
vitality of the young "Stewart Trio" is as
effectively captured here as it was on the "Guard
Trio's" STERO CONCERT PLUS! album. Together they
privide the real sound and feel of both of the early
Kingston Trios. Sit back and enjoy . . .

This is a MONOPHONIC recording that has been mastered using Digital Stereo Reverberation, thus creating a simulated stereo image. It was recorded direct to a 1/4" reel to reel Ampex Master recorder with no noise reduction at 7.5 i.p.s., thus there is a bit of tape hiss on very quiet passages. Everything possable has been done to lessen this noise, and the resulting tape is at least comparable to any Master tape of that era (1962).

|The Compact disc
Digital Audio System offers the best possable
sound reproduction -- on a small, convienient sound-carrier
unit. The Vompact Disc's superior performance is the
result of Laser-optical scanning combined with digital
playback, and is independent of the techno;ogy used in
making the original recording. This recording technology
is identified on the back cover by a three-letter code.
In storing and handling the Compact Disc, you should apply the same acre as with conventional records. No further cleaning will be neccessary if the Compact Disc is always held by the edges and is replaced in its case directly afterplaying. Should the Compact Disc become soiled by fingerprints, dust, or dirt, it can be wiped (always in a straight line, from center to edge) with a clean and lint-free, soft, dry cloth. No solvent or abrasive cleaner should ever be used on the disc.
if you follow these suggestions, the Compact Disc will provide a lifetime of pure listening enjoyment.
