Make Way is the ninth album by the American folk music group the Kingston Trio, released in 1961 (see 1961 in music). It reached number two on the Billboard charts, despite there being no US singles released from the album. ("En El Agua" was released as a B-side in the US but as an A-side in Great Britain).

Reception

In his Allmusic review, critic Bruce Eder called the album "...a beautiful if relatively low-key selection of a dozen songs, mostly traditional tunes adapted by the group" despite noting that the liveliest songs were misplaced on the album's track sequence."
