Haul Away is from a Capitol Custom 45 for the New March Of Dimes released in 1959. I got my picture sleeve autographed at a Kingston Trio performance at the Dublin Pub in Portland, Oregon in March of 1998. The Kingston Trio used to perform at The Dublin Pub in Portland, Oregon quite often, especially from the mid to late 80's. At that time, the line up was Bob Shane, Nick Reynolds, and George Shane.

This is the best and probably most well-known Eligibles tune; Car Trouble was released in 1959 on Capitol 4203 and in 1963 on Capitol LP Shut Down. The audio for this came from a recording I did several years ago from the LP. The information in the video came from the Northwest Bands site and a Gilligan's Island site on the internet. The Eligibles were from Renton, Washington and consisted of Stan Farber, Ron Hicklin, Ron Rolla and Bob Zwirn. I hope you like the song, and feel free to comment.
