The second troupe of the Kingston Trio performs a single hit record from the period of the first troupe. "Tijuana Jail" was banned from radio stations in Mexico because the government felt it perpetuated demeaning stereotypes. It's unlikely that a song like this, however innocently intended, could be released in the U.S. market today. It is worth noting, though, that the real object of humor in the lyrics are the hapless drunks who get thrown in jail and need to bail themselves out.
