The 1964 album "The Judy Collins Concert" at Town Hall in NYC contains the Tom Paxton composition "Bottle of Wine" with so little applause of recognition that it's obviously the first recording.

Later the same year Grammy nominee Tom Paxton gives us his take from the Newport Folk Festival.

The Kingston Trio cover comes from the 1965 album "Stay Awhile".

The Fireballs (George Tomsco, Stan Lark, Doug Roberts and singer/pianist Jimmy Gilmer) took "Bottle of Wine" into the top ten in 1968.
