Folk - Released August 23, 2005 | Rhino - Warner Records

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 /TiVo

Their third recording was one of the group's stronger outings, even if it confirms their status as folk popularizers rather than musical innovators. In particular, this record was essential to boosting the profile of Bob Dylan, including their huge hit cover of "Blowin' in the Wind," their Top Ten version of "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right," and the bluesy "Quit Your Lowdown Ways," which Dylan himself would not release in the '60s (although his version finally came out on The Bootleg Series). "Stewball," "All My Trials," and "Tell It on the Mountain" were other highlights of their early repertoire, and the dramatic, strident, but inspirational "Very Last Day" is one of the best original tunes the group ever did. © Richie Unterberger /TiVo

The trio's second album is a little less distinctive than its predecessor, which doesn't mean that it isn't a beautiful record -- just less obviously compelling in its melodies, and perhaps slightly less optimistic in mood. Having expended some of their best material on their debut, the trio reached further for songs here, including the Paul Stookey co-authored "Big Boat" and Mike Settle's "Settle Down (Goin' Down That Highway)," neither of which clicked as singles, despite rousing vocals on both and some distinctive guitar virtuosity on the former. The group once again reached back to the 1940s activist folk song tradition with Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land," but the track that everyone ended up knowing from Moving was from a very different corner of the folk tradition. "Puff, the Magic Dragon" was introduced here and rose to number one as a single (and even made the Top 10 in the R&B charts), helping propel Moving to number two as part of a 99-week chart run -- and in those days, it was taken as a beautiful and gentle children's song that adults could enjoy, the myth of the song's supposed "drug" message not appearing until 1966. Other highlights include the haunting "Pretty Mary" and the startlingly intricate "A 'Soalin'," which became a highlight of their live act as well. © Bruce Eder /TiVo

Including four new tracks, the two-disc set Around the Campfire is an excellent overview of Peter, Paul & Mary's career as it nears the four-decade mark. As indicated by the title, the focus of the collection is to shine a spotlight on songs that express ideals of community, tunes commonly sung in schools and churches as well as at more intimate gatherings; toward that aim, the trio offers newly recorded renditions of such perennials as "Kumbaya," "Michael, Row the Boat Ashore," "Down by the Riverside," and "Goodnight Irene." The inclusion of such longtime favorites as "Puff (The Magic Dragon)," "If I Had a Hammer," "Blowin' in the Wind," and "Leaving on a Jet Plane" solidifies Around the Campfire as a superior retrospective of Peter, Paul & Mary's music, one particularly ideal for younger listeners. © Jason Ankeny /TiVo

Folk - Released November 18, 2008 | Rhino

Issued in 2008, this three-disc box set, compiled by Rhino Records and available only at Barnes & Noble, presents the first solo albums released by Peter, Paul & Mary following the famous folk trio’s 1970 break-up. While Peter Yarrow and Mary Travers offered up PETER and MARY, respectively, Noel Paul Stookey cheekily entitled his record PAUL AND, also managing to score a significant hit with the elegant, nuptial-themed “Wedding Song (There Is Love).” Essential for diehard PP&M fans, THE SOLO RECORDINGS: 1971-1972 also includes Travers’s dramatic “Indian Sunset” (penned by Elton John and Bernie Taupin) and Yarrow’s defiant “Don’t Ever Take My Freedom Away,” songs that help tide audiences over until the group reformed in ’78. © TiVo

Peter Yarrow, Noel “Paul” Stookey, and Mary Travers, as Peter, Paul and Mary, were there on the ground floor of the 1960s commercial folk revival with songs like their version of Dylan's then-largely unknown “Blowin’ in the Wind” and the simple yet slyly enigmatic singalong “Puff the Magic Dragon.” This was folk dressed up to shine on the radio, and it did. Through it all, and even after the folk boom had faded, Peter, Paul and Mary essentially kept their act the same, and aside from a brief respite in the '70s, they performed and recorded regularly until Travers’ death in 2009, adding in new signature songs each era -- the trio’s powerful rendition of Thea Hopkins’ stark and harrowing “Jesus on the Wire” from 2004 comes immediately to mind in that regard. This set, intended by Yarrow and Stookey as a tribute to Travers, is the last page in the long history of this iconic trio. Taking live recordings of the group at various concerts in the '80s and '90s, Yarrow and Stookey added symphonic arrangements done by longtime friend and collaborator Robert DeCormier, and recorded with the Czech National Sympony Orchestra in Prague shortly after Travers’ death. The result isn’t particularly startling, since Peter, Paul and Mary had used DeCormier’s symphonic touch on releases throughout their career, but there is a compelling mixture of honest sadness and joy at work here, especially on a bouncy and expansive version of “Leaving on a Jet Plane,” a lovely and solemn “Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” a wonderfully illuminated and cinematic “Puff the Magic Dragon,” and Hopkins’ “Jesus on a Wire,” which makes for cinema of a whole different sort. Frequently, though, the orchestrations wear out their welcome quickly, and while sweet and pretty, they detract from the intimacy through simplicity feel that songs like “Blowin’ in the Wind” require to be truly effective. All in all, it’s great to hear these three harmonizing together one last time, though, and if the orchestrations aren’t always necessary, it’s still a testament to the chemistry between the three of them as singers and performers. The Prague Sessions feels like a stately goodbye, made memorable because that is exactly what it is -- a goodbye. © Steve Leggett /TiVo

Folk - Released December 4, 2012 | Rhino - Warner Records

Peter, Paul and Mary may not have pleased the folk purists very much, but the trio did as much as anyone to bring folk music to a commercial peak in the early '60s, and by championing new songwriters like Bob Dylan, Fred Neil, and John Denver, among others, and sticking up for rock (even though rock wasn't even close to what they did), the group showed a sharp sense of time and era. The trio toured Japan in December of 1967, with concerts in both Tokyo and Kyoto, and released a live album there drawn from the two shows -- the album was never released in the U.S. This two-disc set makes up for that, with the original album on disc one and a dozen additional tracks from the two shows that were discovered on the original master tapes making up the second disc. It's a pretty standard Peter, Paul and Mary set for the time, featuring the trio's signature versions of "Puff, the Magic Dragon," Pete Seeger's "If I Had a Hammer," and Bob Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind," among others, including a nice version of Fred Neil's "The Other Side of This Life," and it's nicely recorded, full of good will, energy, and the trio's trademark vocal harmonies. © Steve Leggett /TiVo
