Album Notes
This album, recorded in March of 1962, is the second of two live recordings from The Chad Mitchell Trio. After the Trio's prior performance in front of 3,000 enthusiastic college students, the Trio chose New York's Bitter End coffeehouse to record it's second live album. Their management thought it a more intimate setting and Greenwich Village, Bleeker Street, and coffeehouses were virtually synonymous with folk music.

Chad Mitchell Trio Live At The Bitter End
I wore this recording out on vinyl, and was delighted to find it on CD Baby. Thanks. The Chad Mitchell Trio, (unlike some of their contemporary folk trios) could actually sing. Some of the politcial commentary is obviously dated, but not the humanity and the musicianship. "Moscow Nights" will break your heart. Compare it to the instrumental Dixieland version by the Village Stompers that was a top 40 radio hit. The CMT's rendition truly captures the soul of Russia. If you've not heard these guys, start here, then try "Blowin' In The Wind."

Reg Nelson

This is what Folk music is all about.
This album epitimizes the true meaning of Folk Songs. If I could only have one CD of the Chad Mitchell Trio, this one would be it.
