This album is all the title says it is -- a collection of the Kingston Trio's outstanding performances
. . . gathered from their hit albums and presented here together for the first time in one album. "Tom Dooley" is a very appropriate opener, since it's the tune that appeared in their first great album, The Kingston Trio, and opened the way for their phenomenal success. By now, of course, most of these songs from their other great albums such as M.T.A. from The Kingston Trio At Large, "A Worried Man" from Here We Go Again, and "Raspberries, Strawberries" from Sold Out, have become just as famous. There's one exception too. Their smash hit "The Tijuana Jail" has never been available in twelve-inch record form, and makes its album debut here. Along with those earlier favorites, a new hit, from their College Concert album, is included here too. It's a beautiful ballad entitled "Where Have All the Flowers Gone", that features vocal solos by Nick Reynolds, Bob Shane and John Stewart, newest member of the Trio, who is also featured in "Take Her Out of Pity" from Close-Up. Here is truly a collectors item for longtime Kingston Trio fans, as well as those who have just discovered this great group. These are their most popular performances according to millions of fans. But there's plenty more where these came from. Many other wonderful ballads and rousing folk songs which you're sure to enjoy can be heard in the Trio's internationally-famous albums listed below.
