A typically brief and no-frills budget-priced compilation from Curb Records, the Kingston Trio's GREATEST HITS is probably best for the neophyte who's a bit curious about this folk-pop act of the '50s and '60s, or perhaps the old fan who just wants a digital copy of "Tom Dooley" without much effort. Unlike some of Curb's best-ofs, this one features a well-balanced overview, pairing the trio's biggest hits--the aforementioned murder ballad, the swaggering "Greenback Dollar," the comic subway rant "M.T.A." and the story song "The Tijuana Jail"--with a good selection of lesser-known but equally fine tunes. The sly "Scotch and Soda" and a pair of Pete Seeger interpretations, the moving "Where Have All the Flowers Gone" and a spirited take on the traditional "Worried Man Blues" closely modeled after Seeger's, are the highlights of the other tunes. GREATEST HITS is inexpensive but not half bad.
