Aspen Gold is an album by the American folk music group the Kingston Trio, released in 1979 (see 1979 in music). The group consisted of the line up of Bob Shane, George Grove, and Roger Gambill. Aspen Gold included re-recordings of nine previously released songs done regularly by the Trio in their live act along with two new songs - "Aspen Gold" and "Longest Beer of the Night" - the latter two released as a single but distributed only for radio promotional purposes.
Aspen Gold (LP, Album, RE). CBS Special Products. referencing Aspen Gold, LP, NR2. Don't know why this Lp gets such short shrift. First of all, it was an early digital recording by Nautilus Records, and the presence and pop of the audio is stunning on HQ vinyl. Second, the performers are in great voice. Yes, Bob Shane was getting a little crunchy in his old age, but the enthusiasm of his performance more than makes up for the huskyness of the leads. And the musicianship of George and Roger is superb.

I hitchhiked into Idaho in the middle of the night Caught the autumn outdoor late show by God's own candle light I closed my eyes reluctantly while mother nature waved her wand When I awoke I saw before me in the dawn. Chorus: Aspen gold among the green. Prettiest sight my eyes have ever seen. Aspen gold among the green. Prettiest sight this city boy's ole smoggy eyes have seen. Caught a ride from an old-time miner Heading aimless toward his past He talked about his younger years and a life just as fast They were looking for a fool's gold buried. It entered the album charts in late October 1958, where it resided for nearly four years, spending one week at in early 1959. It was awarded an RIAA gold album on January 19, 1961.
