The Kingston Trio - Born at the Right TimeMarch, 2012
The Kingston Trio, with George Grove, Bill Zorn and Rick Dougherty, had been wanting to record a CD of all new material for a long time. Finally, they decided the time had come. All three members brought in songs, as did Bob Shane, original Kingston Trio founder. Over a several year period, the songs were whittled down; then finally agreed upon. They kept with the Kingston Trio tradition of considering only songs that everyone liked. The recording process started in June of 2011, and the CD was released in March of 2012.
"Not a traditional Kingston Trio song on this album, yet it is a Kingswton Trio album in every sense. The musicianship, the harmonies, and the song selection — both musically and thematically — feature the unmistakable touch of this fine trio, and of the Kingston Trio throughout the decades. Traditional songs mix with carefully chosen covers including songs by former Kingston Trio member John Stewart, as well as Bill Staines and Steve Gillette. Some songs feature playful humor; others are rich with social commentary. This is an album that you will surely enjoy." -- Review by Valerie Magee
