One of the best tunes Pete Seeger ever wrote is covered here beautifully by The Kingston Trio. The production and vocal delivery gets me every time with this track. There's a real lo-fi approach to the sound that doesn't force the melody down your throat and beg to be a radio hit.

It's just there floating out in the distance and not trying too hard. Nicely layered acoustic guitar tones and casually circular harmonies that ring true.

Support Gaslight Records and the artists by looking for this record on vinyl or cd or MP3.
