I have made a tradition of posting a song suitable for the Holidays.
I try to select one that is less than well-known and by artists who may have been forgotten.
This year’s music is by the Chad Mitchell Trio. Although this song was also recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary, the Chad Mitchell Trio was the first marquee folk group to introduce it. Few people recall that the trio also beat Peter, Paul and Mary to Blowing in the Wind and Leaving on a Jet Plane. No surprise that some of their key material overlapped since both groups shared the same producer – Milt Okun.
After Chad left, he was replaced by John Denver and the group was renamed the Mithcell Trio. As before, biting political satire was their trademark, along with crisp harmony. Look them up on You Tube.
