The Limeliters


The Limeliters were a Hollywood-based folk trio who managed to successfully integrate smooth harmonies, light political satire and general humor into a national spotlight. Helped by the tenor of Glenn Yarbrough and the solid baritone of Alex Hassilev, the group had its biggest hit with "A Dollar Down" (1961). At a time when popular music was beginning to gain an edge, the music of the Limeliters portrayed a simpler, jollier America where educated wisecracks and sing-alongs could suffice as entertainment. The band split apart in 1963 as Yarbrough went on to contribute to the melodramatic oceanside ponderings of Rod McKuen while other founding member Lou Gottlieb went on to form Morning Star Ranch, one of the original San Francisco communes.
