The original Kingston Trio of Dave Guard, Bob Shane, and Nick Reynolds perform a rousing spiritual from their ninth album, 1961's "Goin' Places" - the last one to feature Guard, who was to leave the group in the middle of that year, replaced by John Stewart.

The origins of "You Don't Knock" are unclear. It was brought to widespread attention by a mid-1950s recording by The Staple Singers, credited to Roebucks "Pop" Staples, though earlier versions are attributed as traditional and/or to Ceder Walton and Wesley Westbrooks. This arrangement is credited as "Arranged By Dave Guard." In all likelihood, the song is traditional, and the multiple copyrights reflect different versions that were copyrighted for publishing royalties, a common practice with public domain songs at the time.
