    This exhaustive collection documents how Werber - then manager of the Kingston Trio - attempted to create a Brill Building-like production line of writers, producers and acts, though focused on the new folk rock San Francisco sound. His flagship act in this regard was the hugely popular We Five. Werber believed in nurturing handpicked acts, and we have included his best here, such as the Justice League, the Front Line and the Tricycle. Apart from We Five, none of Trident's acts had any success, but although most of this anthology is compiled from previously unissued material, it is a surprisingly strong and accomplished set of folk rock, pop and garage band sounds with a San Franciscan flavour. There is also a rare folk rock experiment by Kingston Trio member John Stewart and selected demos by hopefuls who auditioned for Trident, including Thorinshield, the All Nite Flight and the New Tweedy Brothers. The package contains an extensive history of the production house and its brief but brilliant tenure, based on first-hand interviews with many of the participants, plus many illustrations from the Trident archives.
