Live at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium is a live album by the American folk music group The Kingston Trio, recorded in 1961 and released in 2007 (see 2007 in music).

History

After completing the album Goin' Places and a scheduled foreign tour, founder Dave Guard announced his departure from the group, but continued to fulfill the group's concert commitments until a replacement could be found.[1] This performance was the last by the Trio before Guard's replacement John Stewart joined the group.

Singer Pat Boone joined the group on stage to perform "You're Gonna Miss Me". A bonus video of the Trio performing the same song on Boone's April 1961 TV special is also included in this release.

Allmusic 3.5/5 stars [2]

Writing for Allmusic, music critic Lindsay Planer wrote of the album; "The Trio's stage show—captured here at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on April 21, 1961—was a mixture of music and humor. And while an overt emphasis is placed upon the former, hearing the (presumably) unedited between-song banter gives modern listeners an insight into their personalities. With comments ranging from political to, at times simply silly, evidence of the Kingston Trio's obviously heartfelt camaraderie is weaved throughout the equally appealing live set. To some, a cursory glance at the tunes performed during the concert might reveal more in terms of songs not played."[2]
