Welcome to the Resurrection Beat Machine! This blog is dedicated to lost 60s pop songs from the US, UK and abroad. Whenever possible, please purchase music and support the artists / labels. Kingston Trio - Stay Awhile available here.
Three Song was recorded for a group of Decca albums during latter part of the career of the Kingston Trio, sometimes called the (John) Stewart Years, after the departure of Dave Guard in 1961. Three Song was not a hit for the group. Interestingly, though, it was written by Mason Williams, who, in 1968, scored a huge hit with Classical Gas. Three Song is a lovely little harmony number that has more in common with 60s folk than the manly, Irish pub style ballads that the Kingston Trio became famous for during their early career. The Kingston Trio decided to fold two years later in 1967 due to the changing tastes of the public. That year, John Stewart scored a huge hit with Daydream Believer for the Monkees.
