In May, 1964 Chet Atkins & RCA sent The Cumberland Trio to New York City for a week of recording, appearances & interviews. These 12 songs were recorded at historic Gotham Studios over a four day period and represent the CT's best work of the '60's Folk Era. The album was never released because of the Beatles & the British invasion wiping out the Folk Era boom almost overnight when they hit the US on their first tour in the fall of 1964. For 49 years it appeared that the tape of the session was lost. But in this the Trio's 50th year it was dramatically discovered & then brilliantly restored & digitally remastered by Andy Laird of Spare Time Music, Carlsbad, CA. Folk historian Nick Noble has called this album "One of the very best of the Folk Era- bar none."
