25 Songs, 1 Hour 19 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

There’s no overstating just how much Peter, Paul & Mary contributed to the commercial clout of folk music in the ‘60s, whether smoothing out the crags in several Bob Dylan songs, making squirrelly pop tunes out of Pete Seeger (“If I Had a Hammer”) and Woody Guthrie (“This Land Is Your Land”) compositions, or playfully bridging the psychedelic and kid-friendly (“Puff, the Magic Dragon”). But despite their friendly, nonconfrontational image, the trio also delivered stunning protest songs in “Cruel War” and “The Great Mandella (The Wheel of Life).”

The Consumate Peter, Paul and Mary defines folk music of the 60's

This collection doesn't miss. It has all of the essential songs that defined PP&M to be part of the 60's folk music revolution. Even today the influences of this music exists in many artists in their accoustic styles- today they call it "unplugged"... but this is the folk music of a generation that should be heard by today's generation. It still holds up very well.

American music at its finest.

There are two kinds of music: good and bad. This music is deceptively simple with harmony and lyrics, but offers vocal performance with elegance, sincerity, and artistry. A combination rarely found.

Music with meaning. PPM songs speak to the heart

Peter Paul and Mary are the best. I just saw then in concert and they still are great. There music brings out such a sense of happieness and togetherness. The 00's are turning out to be so much like the 60's it is scary. This makes their music that much more relavent. All the classics are on this album. This is the first album you should buy if you don't have one already.
