Mitchell Trio,The - Slightly Irreverant


The Chad Mitchell Trio – later known as The Mitchell Trio – were a North American vocal group who became known during the 1960s. They performed traditional folk songs and some of their own compositions. They were particularly notable for performing satirical songs that criticized current events during the time of the cold war, the civil rights movement, and the Vietnam War, in a less subtle way than the typical folk music and singer-songwriter musicians of their time.
Ronnie Langford Jr. writes on Allmusic: "The Mitchell Trio knew how to walk the line between political and good-time folk music, a necessary talent late in the '60s folk revival. With three good singers -- Chad Mitchell, Mike Kobluk, and Joe Frazier -- the trio could sing it pretty, but they also added political material that was occasionally controversial. On Slightly Irreverent the trio offers a rousing ode to European imperialism to the tune of "Wimoweh" called "An African Song," and don't blink an eye when covering Phil Ochs' "The Draft Dodger Rag." There's also good solo vocal work by Frazier on Weill/Brecht's "The Alabama Song" and Kobluk on "When I Was a Young Man."
