By the way, trivia question, how many folk songs did go out on 45's? I LP think of many. Some pop stuff came out only on Or a popular singer might have an LP come out, but it would contain one or two songs in particular that the record company wanted DJs to push, so they would issue those on I typed "Dave Guard Kingston Trio" into google.
Check this! If you scroll to the bottom of the web page, there are a half-dozen songs in RealAudio. Helluva voice! Gotta be the one! I think she just blew out my speakers!! Gotta go now. I'll check back later. Maybe somebody can find a date knowing the album. My copy is pathetic, almost unlistenable. I found it in the 's on Pretty Saro - The Gateway Singers - On The Lot (Vinyl trash pile and I have no dust jacket.
So the other album predates this one and is or earlier. The "ON the Lot" album lists the performers as Elmerlee Thomas a woman who had at least one solo albumJerry Walter more belowErnie Sheldon around folk music for a long time, solo albums, replaced Glenn Yarbrough in Limeliters et al and Marc Richards I don't think the same one Clinton pardoned.
Walter is holding the banjo on the cover photo. The pargraph about Walter says: "Jerry Walter, an ex-radio Jack Armstrong, and all-Chicagoan boy, soap opera'd his way to audience recognition Having accumulated such basics as a family, guitar and five-string banjo, glib tongue, and a Private's degree from Uncle Sam's army, Jerry finally put his formal training from the American and San Francisco conservatories of music to work inwhen he organized the folk-centered Gateway Singers.
When by the "Singers" were professionally disbanded, Walter embarked on the project that was to catapult him into entertainment stardom with his crowning accomplishment - the formation of the Gateway Trio" Conclusions - Gateway Singers were a year or more ahead of Kingstons Don, the banjo player you chatted with was probably Jerry Walter, the group's organizer.
Jerry's "stardom" was apparently not long-lived. Am always willing to make a tape. Contact me at the personal pages. Also, noted that on the GS album that Lou Gottlieb was their bass player and left after the album was cut to go back to school to get his doctorate. Album) name rang a bell. I'm pretty sure the banjo player who came to the party was indeed Jerry Walter. I had no idea of his background Jack Armstrong??
I listened to Jack Armstrong when I was a kid! I got the impression from what he said that he had joined the group later on, but I could have been wrong. I'm trying to recall a conversation that happened forty-two years ago. He was fairly quiet and modest, and seemed to be more interested in listening to us sing. He just sang the one song, Pretty Saroand did such a nice, straightforward job of it that I decided to learn it myself.
Thanks for the info. Writing in haste, I got the names mixed. It was rich r who provided the memory-jogger. Thanks to you both. Like Ronnie Gilbert in a way, big strong voice which more than held up to the men. I've still got their first album on tape somewhere in the vault.
Then, according to the liner notes on that album, he left to complete his PhD dissertation and was replaced by Ernie Sheldon. Will Holt's Coral recording of the song brought the record company a bunch of protests from Bostonians objecting to the song making a hero of a "radical". The record was withdrawn and reissued LP reference to O'Brien. The line became "fight the fare increase, fight the fare increase".
K3 brought back O'brien but changed his first name. Might have to go into the deep archives for that one. The Whiskeyhills bombed big time, Henske grew to hate Guard who moved to Australia for a time and passed away in the 's, I believe. I stand corrected. That was the Almanac Singers. I just caught this thread! I'm exhausted after all the past time travel! Actually, this is really fun Don, do you remember when the Limelighters, or was it the Gateway singers, came to town and we hooted with them at John and Sally Ashfords?
And, did you know that Glenn Yarborough sp? I don't remember some of the details of that -- who all was there, etc. I'm beginning to think I'm older than dirt! In fact, when the Big Bang occurred, I was the one who yelled, "What in the hell was that?? DeeThomaz likes this.

Right now, I don't really care what they put out, as long as they put something out. There's enough material to do a new volume once or twice a year - let's have it!

Heart of Gold: Thanks a lot, I was just looking for more information. Sorry, if I came across as rude - that was not my intention. Anyways, I have heard about this before and it does not surprise me that the artists would take the opportunity to revoke licenses after 35 years. If the decision by the district court in CA stands, it could really cause huge problems for the music industry.
I am sure that this will eventually be decided by the Supreme Court if it takes the case. Heart of Gold likes this. Location: Dayton Ohio. Any word on an actual release date yet? DeeThomazFeb 23, Location: Sheboygan, WI.
Some stuff I can live with. Some that's horrid. No way to 'rehabilitate' the latter. PhilBorderFeb 23, Location: eau claire,wisconsin,usa.
Iwould love to hear this period more. Bob's country period. Also add some Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid outtakes and it would be perfect. Bring it on.
Location: New York. I wish the next volume would be an expanded Basement Tapes set. I would like to hear a stripped down Self Portrait.
