SIDE I Looking For the Sunshine * Hawaiian Nights * I Like To Hear the Rain * Big Ship Glory * Sometimes Love Is Better When It's Gone * I'm A Rake and Ramblin Boy *
The Worlds Needs A Melody * The Long Black Veil * Will You Love Me If I Don't Do Coke? * Cortelia Clark * A Rolling Stone * Easy to Arrange *

My kids have a saying when they hear a new song that really moves them: "This song makes me shake my butt like Bob Shane." When we first heard this album, they nearly knocked the house off it's foundation. The answer to this kind of behavior is so simple, yet, most singing groups never get close. We here in this album the total commitment of these three "madmen" to sing their hearts out together. This is what we hear and love. It's been so long since I've heard that. I just want to thank Bobby for remembering. Thank you, Roger and George, for letting the past emerge into this.

Papa K's input:

The forth generation Trio (1976 - 1986) released 3 albums during this period: Aspen Gold (1981,) 25 Years Non-Stop (1982,) and Looking for the Sunshine (1983.) Of the three, I believe Looking for the Sunshine to be the most noteworthy as it offers the greatest amount of previously unavailable material.

On a personal note, Looking for the Sunshine, was one of the Trio albums that fell through the cracks for me. Until recently (1999,) a well worn cassette copy of Aspen Gold was the only album from this period in my collection. Thanks to ebay, the on-line auction, I have managed to acquire all three . . .

* * *

. . . then I found out that Looking for the Sunshine is available directly from George Grove (While supplies last.) And more recently, kingstontrio.com 'official' Kingston Trio website (2000.) Just my luck!
