The Chad Mitchell Trio "Original Kapp Recordings"
(w/ bonus tracks @192kbps)





















The original group was formed by Gonzaga University students and Glee Club members William Chad Mitchell (from Spokane, Washington); Mike Kobluk (from Trail, British Columbia, Canada);and Mike Pugh (from Pasco, Washington).

The Trio's first recordings for Colpix were similar to the conventional folk songs that were gaining popularity then as an alternative to the early rock-and-roll genre.
It was songs from their first Kapp Records release ― "Mighty Day" (about the 1900 Galveston,Texas hurricane); "Rum By Gum" (about the Temperance/Prohibition movement); and,"Lizzie Borden" (a strange satire about the accused axe murderess),
which began to make the Trio distinct.

I am one of the producers of a new three dvd set entitled "The Chad Michell Trio: Then and Now." The set includes archival footage of the Trio from the early years, from the reunion with John Denver in 1987, and footage from two concerts shot in Sept and Oct of 2008. If you're a fan of the Trio you are sure to love this new set.
