For many years, this 13-song collection was the best introduction to Peter, Paul & Mary that one could find. Not only did it contain all of the trio's hits, but it was also, until 2005's Warner/Rhino compilation The Very Best of Peter, Paul & Mary, the closest thing to a cross-section of the group's sound that existed. From the acoustic folk sound of "Blowin' in the Wind" to the electric guitar and drum driven folk-rock of "Too Much of Nothing," the evolution of their sound is handily summarized, albeit not in chronological order, with a few surprises in store for the neophyte fan. In particular, those who think that the trio was relentlessly earnest and issue-driven likely will be delighted by the satirical "I Dig Rock 'n Roll Music," a Top 10 hit in 1967 that managed to poke good-natured fun at several musical icons of the period. Bob Dylan is, of course, well represented among the composers, but so is Gordon Lightfoot, and with Pete Seeger and Lee Hayes, John Denver, and Hedy West also present (along with Stookey, Yarrow, and even Travers) as songwriters, there's no lack of variety to the material, subject matter, and sounds on this disc. ---Bruce Eder, Rovi

It may seem amazing that Peter, Paul and Mary did not release a multi-disc retrospective until 1998, partly because they have retained a measure of control over their catalog. This four-CD/cassette retrospective is available only through the Reader's Digest Music mail-order division. Produced by Peter Yarrow, it conforms to Reader's Digest's Greatest Hits & Finest Performances format: the first disc contains the hit singles, followed by several thematic groupings of material. Disc One, "Best-Known, Best Loved," presents among its 18 selections 16 of the 20 PP&M songs that reached the pop singles charts -- 15 in their original hit recordings. Disc Two, subtitled "Performers' Choice, Album Favorites," selects from across the group's catalog, including many folk standards. Disc Three is divided into "For Kids, For Fun," drawing heavily from the two Peter, Paul and Mommy albums, and "Songs of Spirit," which contains religious and otherwise thoughtful material. And the entire fourth disc is given over to the group's solo efforts, most dating from their years apart in the 1970s. There are some missing songs a fan might have liked to see here, but with 70 tracks, a large part of the group's repertoire is included, including three-quarters of the Peter, Paul and Mary album. Since PP&M were more devoted to individual songs than albums, changed their style relatively little over the years, and were remarkably consistent, their work is not harmed by being resequenced in this manner. One could think of better groupings of material -- traditional folk songs, political material, group originals -- but PP&M always specialized in mixing things up, so maybe this is as good as anything. A more serious criticism is the lack of any real rarities beyond a few out-of-print tracks -- no one-off singles like the campaign songs for Eugene McCarthy -- so fans who have the albums on CD don't have much incentive to invest in the fairly hefty price tag. The booklet contains a brief biography, but is mostly given over to the group members' comments on the selections; annotations are not included. A box set of Peter, Paul and Mary's work was long overdue. Now that it's available, at least by mail order, maybe the group and Warner Bros. can think about a retail version that would repair some of these shortcomings. ---William Ruhlmann, AllMusic Review

With Late Again, Peter, Paul & Mary completed the transition from folk to folk-rock that had begun a couple of years before its release. Granted, it was a transition as slow and halting as that of an ox carrying a piano on its back, but it did actually take place. You can't call an album that numbers Elvin Bishop, Herbie Hancock, Paul Griffin, Charlie McCoy, Bernard Purdie, John Simon, and Paul Winter among its many accompanying musicians a folk album, after all. As for the music, it was adequate but rather inconsequential, the harmonies polished and pleasing as always. The trio were at this point composing the majority of their own material, with serious-minded, mildly tuneful, subdued, and fairly unmemorable originals, the best of them being "Rich Man Poor Man." They did add some diversity in flavor and arrangement with the churchy "Tramp on the Street," the haunting "Hymn," and occasional orchestration. The most notable track, by far, was their cover of Bob Dylan's "Too Much of Nothing." Previously released as a single in late 1967, it was the very first version of a Dylan Basement Tapes-era composition to reach the charts. --- Richie Unterberger, Rovi

The legendary trio's eponymous 1962 debut produced two classics--"Lemon Tree" and Pete Seeger's "If I Had a Hammer." Because they were always hipper and more political than the Kingston Trio, Peter, Paul & Mary were soon frequently credited as the group that transformed American folk music into '60s pop. It would be another six months before they really exploded with "Puff the Magic Dragon," and then another six before they brought Bob Dylan into the mainstream via their hit covers of "Blowin' in the Wind" and "Don't Think Twice." Which is why 1970's 10 Years Together: The Best of Peter, Paul and Mary remains the essential buy; nevertheless, the debut features their gorgeous covers of "Cruel War" and "Where Have All the Flowers Gone," making this disc mandatory for folk fans. ---Bill Holdship, Editorial Reviews

 

The debut album by Peter, Paul & Mary is still one of the best albums to come out of the 1960s folk music revival, a beautifully harmonized collection of the best songs that the group knew, stirring in its sensibilities and its haunting melodies, crossing between folk, children's songs, and even gospel ("If I Had My Way"), and light-hearted just where it needed to be, with the song "Lemon Tree," which became their first hit single, and earnest where it had to be, particularly on "If I Had a Hammer." Ironically, the trio's version of the latter song, which Pete Seeger and Lee Hayes had written in the early days of the Weavers' history, helped push popular folk music in a more political direction at the time, but it was another song in their repertory, Seeger's "Where Have All the Flowers Gone," that also helped indirectly jump start that movement. The group had performed it in Boston at a concert attended by the Kingston Trio, who immediately returned to New York and cut their own version, which charted as a single early in 1962. Other highlights include "It's Raining" and "500 Miles." Peter, Paul & Mary, which hit the top spot on the album charts as part of a 185-week run, is the purest of the trio's albums, laced with innocent good spirits and an optimism that remains infectious even 40 years later. Along with the rest of the trio's early catalog, the album was remixed for CD from its original three-track master tape by Peter Yarrow in 1989, which resulted in some of the best sound on any Warner Bros. CDs of material dating from the early '60s. --- Bruce Eder, allmusic.com

See What Tomorrow Brings is a strong album that plays to the strengths of Peter, Paul, & Mary. There is a good variety of material within their folk format, and a nice esprit de corps that pervades the recording. All members sing lead, which brings a good balance to the proceedings. Worth noting are two early versions of Gordon Lightfoot's "Early Morning Rain" and Ewan MacColl's "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face." Although there isn't one number that shouts instant classic, all cuts have something to recommend them. Lest we forget the trio's idealism, the opening song "If I Were Free" speaks to the hope of wars ending and the beginning of peaceful times. "Jane, Jane" and "Because All Men Are Brothers" show the group's gospel roots, while "The Rising of the Moon," an intense cut, has Irish music as its base. "Tryin' to Win" and "On a Desert Island" manifests the humorous side of the trio as they sing about real and imagined love relationships. Throughout the album, arrangements are tasteful, clean, and never obtrusive to the songs presented. All in all, this is a very good album that has variety, strong material, tasteful production, and a fine spirit that gives it a winning edge. --- Michael Ofjord, Rovi

A collection of the best songs by Peter, Paul, and Mary, this vinyl album was released in 1973 and is very rare.

 

Peter, Paul and Mary were an American folk-singing trio who ultimately became one of the biggest acts of the 1960s. The trio was composed of Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey, and Mary Travers.

Manager Albert Grossman created Peter, Paul and Mary in 1961, after auditioning several singers in the New York folk scene. After rehearsing them out of town in Miami, Grossman booked them into The Bitter End, a coffee house and popular folk music venue in New York City's Greenwich Village.

They recorded their first album, “Peter, Paul and Mary,” the following year. It included "500 Miles," "Lemon Tree" and the Pete Seeger hit tunes "If I Had a Hammer (The Hammer Song)" and "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" The album was listed in the Billboard Magazine Top Ten for 10 months, including seven weeks in the #1 position. It remained a main catalog-seller for decades to come, eventually selling over two million copies, earning double platinum certification from the RIAA in the United States alone.

By 1963, Peter, Paul and Mary had recorded three albums. All three were in the Top Ten the week of President Kennedy's assassination. In 1963 the group also released "Puff the Magic Dragon," with music by Yarrow and words based on a poem that had been written by a fellow student at Cornell, Leonard Lipton. Despite urban myths that insist the song is filled with drug references, it is actually about the lost innocence of childhood. In January 1964 they appeared on the Jack Benny television program, performing the Bob Dylan song "Blowin' In the Wind."

That year the group performed "If I Had a Hammer" at the 1963 March on Washington, best remembered for Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. One of their biggest hit singles was the aforementioned Bob Dylan song "Blowin' in the Wind." They also sang other Bob Dylan songs, such as, "The Times They Are a-Changin'," "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right" and "When the Ship Comes In," perhaps their most memorable piece. Their manager, Albert Grossman, was also Dylan's manager. Their success with Dylan's "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right" aided Dylan's "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" album into the Top 30, having been released four months earlier.

"Leaving On A Jet Plane" became their only #1 hit (as well as their final Top 40 Pop hit) in December 1969, and was written by the group's friend John Denver. It was the group's only million-selling gold certified single. The track first appeared on their million-selling platinum certified “Album 1700” in 1967, which also contained their #9 hit, "I Dig Rock and Roll Music." "Day Is Done," a #21 hit in June 1969, was the last Hot 100 song the trio recorded.

The trio broke up in 1970 to pursue solo careers, but found little of the success which they had experienced as a group, although Stookey's "The Wedding Song (There is Love)" was a hit and has become a wedding standard since its 1971 release.

In 1978, they reunited for a concert to protest against nuclear energy, and continued to record albums together and tour, playing around 45 shows a year, until the 2009 death of Mary Travers. The trio were prolific political activists for their involvement in the peace movement and other causes. They were given the Peace Abbey Courage of Conscience award in September 1990.

The group was inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1999. Peter, Paul and Mary received the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award from Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2006. In 2009 they were inducted into the Hit Parade Hall of Fame. --- starpulse.com
