Stewart was selected by the remaining members Nick Reynolds and Bob Shane as Guard's successor, bringing with him his respected skills as a musician, composer, and performer. Reynolds, Shane, and Stewart would record a dozen albums together, taking the music of the Trio into new directions, including more original material, and performing covers of songs by relative newcomers Tom Paxton, Mason Williams and Gordon Lightfoot. The follow-up album, Dream Babies Go Hollywood, proved to be a commercial disappointment, and shortly thereafter Stewart dropped from the pop charts, though he continued to perform right up to the time of his death. Fire in the Wind, 1977. Bombs Away Dream Babies, 1979. John Stewart in Concert, version of Phoenix Concerts, 1980. Forgotten Songs of Some Old Yesterday, 1980.

Dream Babies Go Hollywood. After folk-based Kingston Trio veteran John Stewart had a Top Five single with "Gold" from the Top Ten album Bombs Away Dream Babies in 1979, he largely repeated the pop/rock formula the next year with Dream Babies Go Hollywood. However, Linda Ronstadt and Nicolette Larson helped out and sang background vocals on most Dream Babies Go Hollywood cuts. Hollywood Dreams" is a bright, easygoing pop tune

John Stewart, an intense troubadour who helped set the standards for the singer-songwriter movement of the early 1970s with his classic album "California Bloodlines," died Saturday in his hometown of San Diego after suffering a stroke. He was 68. Stewart didn't match that acclaim again, but in the long solo career that followed his seven years with the Kingston Trio, he recorded more than 45 albums, flirted with chart success, pioneered the independent recording and release of records, and remained a hard-touring folk patriarch with a loyal following. The biggest hit Stewart recorded himself was "Gold," from his 1979 Top 10 album "Bombs Away Dream Babies. On that project he collaborated with two artists who had studied the Kingston Trio's music when they were starting out - Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks.

John Stewart - Dream babies go Hollywood The follow-up album to Bombs away dream babies (his most successful album) continued in similar vein and was a more than worthy successor. But the real star of this album in my opinion is the excellent vocal renditions by John himself, with surprising shading and textures from his versatile voice.
