Peter, Paul and Mary: Noel Paul Stookey, Peter Yarrow (vocals, acoustic guitar); Mary Travers (vocals).
Peter, Paul and Mary (Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey, and Mary Travers) did more to bring the 1960s folk revival safely into the homes of the American public than any other artists of the day. Their songs had a decided leftist political edge, but were gentle and easy enough to invade AM radio, where their natural, infectious singalong style gave the trio several dignified hits, including "Lemon Tree," "If I Had a Hammer," "Puff, the Magic Dragon," "Blowin' in the Wind," and two hits from the very end of the decade, "I Dig Rock and Roll Music" and "Leaving on a Jet Plane." All are collected here, along with fine versions of "500 Miles," and Gordon Lightfoot's beautiful "Early Mornin' Rain." Although they will forever be associated with the folk movement, Peter, Paul and Mary's material plays surprisingly well after all these years, and while their earnest sincerity can get annoying in large doses, this collection plays just about right. ~ Steve Leggett
Dirty Linen (p.85) - "[I]t's fun to see the group really lay its politics on the line in 'El Salvador,' and 'Weave Me the Sunshine' is as vibrant as anything Peter, Paul, and Mary ever recorded."
I bought this exact same CD off fishpond for $27 just two weeks ago so why is the list price now $67.99... recommend you query the price before purchasing... classic folksie band ofcourse with some great messages from their era.
This CD is an essential in the collection of any fan of 60's and 70's music.
Peter, Paul and Mary are among my favourites of this era, responsible for some truly classic songs loved by many generations, with their truly beautiful harmonies that will take your breath away. This collection showcases the many great songs they have brought into our hearts and minds.
It is an absolute must for any fan of theirs- with live versions and a few of their more recent tracks.
Wow - it was worth waiting for! Thank you. This trio has not lost it's ability to touch the soul with the wonderful words and harmonies as well as tunes. Takes me right back to my early teenage years and I still know all the words, just singing along automatically. Nothing can beat the simplicity! It sure beats my old scratched LP record! I'm enjoying it immensely.
