Back In The Daze #3
PC Fields | 02/15/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"While trying to stay afloat during the Vietnam Era, the Trio's commercial appeal began to wane, succeeded by the enthusiastic charm of the British Invasion, the redefined folk of Bob Dylan, even being out-gunned on their home turf by the high-flying sounds of Psychedelia. However, they had a secret weapon to keep them intact, one that would continue to earn them the respect of guitarists and record collectors for decades to come, by way of a formidable songwriter, John Stewart.By the time the Decca recordings were cut, Stewart was carrying the group. It was a strange reversal of fortune, as Stewart had been in awe of the founding members, and when first joining the Trio, kept decidedly in the background.But the times, and Decca, demanded progress, and fortunately, Stewart was a budding prodigy.The "Decca Years" amply chronicles the era, from Sunset Strip through Sergeant Pepper, and while not reaching the heights of earlier glories, functions as a worthy companion to the "Capitol Collector's Series" CD."
