The Limeliters on DVD Video!
Along with other great Folk Groups from the PBS Special!
This DVD, which includes full video footage of the concert, is actually cheaper than the CD, and includes no fewer than 29 songs plus the song introductions! Hosted by Judy Collins and Tom and Dick - the Smothers Brothers, the DVD includes performances from The Limeliters, The Kingston Trio, the Highwaymen, Roger McGuinn, the Brothers Four, and more.
This DVD includes these FIVE performances by The Limeliters:
Alex Hassilev, founding member of The Limeliters, has seen the hilarious Christopher Guest mockumentary of folk music, A Mighty Wind twice. It's pretty good satire," he says, wearily. "And I like the fact that they play their own instruments and the soundtrack is very believable. It sounds the way acoustic music should sound. The Folksmen are clearly a composite of the Limeliters and a couple of other acts. They draw on a general Sixties folk repertoire. And they do it pretty well."
