Biography

Biography by Bruce Eder

The most popular folk group of the 1960s, Peter, Paul and Mary in later decades have also proved themselves to be among the most durable music acts in history. Their longevity dwarfs that of the Weavers, while the fact that the trio continues to be associated with a major record label (Warner Bros.) after decades in the business sets them apart from rivals like ...

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

One of the most successful folk groups of the 1960s ("Puff the Magic Dragon," "Where Have All the Flowers Gone"), Peter, Paul & Mary reunited in 1978 and have pretty much continued playing together for people of all ages. This celebration is helped along by the New York Choral Society and includes many familiar Christmas songs. While none of them possess an extraordinary singing voice or dexterous musicianship, their talents combined make for a sound greater than the sum of its parts. Bob Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind" is their one concession to their success as topical performers. The rest is festive and often moving. --Rob O'Connor

Product Description

This celebrated trio lend their airy harmonies to such holiday fare as We Wish You a Merry Christmas; The Cherry Tree Carol; Light One Candle; O Come, O Come Emmanuel , and The Magi , as well as old chestnuts like Blowin' in the Wind .

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the album to listen to while trimming your tree September 3, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Always a favorite holiday album, "A Holiday Celebration" has not only the warmly familiar harmonies of Peter, Paul and Mary, but also the vocal support of the New York Choral Society. This 1988 album was recorded live, which has always been the best way to listen to this particular trio of folk singers sing. Most importantly, this is a "holiday" album, which means it is not limited to just Christmas songs, but covers the entire spectrum of the season. There are conventional Christmas songs ("We Wish You A Merry Christmas"), religious songs ("O Come, O Come Emmanuel"), Jewish Songs ("Hayo, Haya"), Children's Songs ("The Friendly Beasts"), familiar poems set to music ("'Twas the Night Before Christmas"), old PP&M classics ("A Soalin'") and even the obligatory protest song ("Blowin' In the Wind"). Truly, there is something for everybody on this album. Mary Travers is featured on a beautiful song you have probably never heard before, "I Wonder As I Wander." This is just a lovely album and as soon as I listen to it each year I am in the mood for the holidays. This is also the first album I put on each year when it is time to trim the tree.

4.0 out of 5 stars Favorite show but the audios's missing half the music December 5, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I LOVE this performance by PP&M!! It's probably my number one favorite; I even bought the video for all our 25 employees several years ago. ANd like many others, the video is the first thing I listen to come the winter holidays. But, I'm very disappointed that the cd/tape doesn't contain all the songs from the show. To me, it's almost not worth it buy the audio ... if you're familiar with the whole performance. I feel a bit cheated.... I want the whole show on audio!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Holiday folk music at its 5 star best December 18, 2002
Format:Audio CD
As pointed out by others, this is not solely Christmas, but honors the Jewish celebrations as well. In each song, there is a feeling of joyousness.
"We Wish You A Merry Christmas" is the one totally familiar song of the season here. Of course, "Blowing In The Wind" is totally familiar, but just not quite a Christmas song...however, it is so identifiable with the trio, that it fits in nicely as the last song.
"Light One Candle" is probably the most beautiful cut, but "Children, Go Where I Send Thee" is the most rousing and joyful one.
This definitely is a must for a good Christmas collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best holiday album ever made! November 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I was fortunate enough to be able to attend one of the Peter Paul and Mary concerts back in 1988 when this recording was made. As always, a PPM concert is an uplifting experience that leaves one still hopeful that good will prevail in our world. This album, full of lovely and out-of-the-ordinary holiday themed music, is superb as the majestic elegance of the NY Choral Society provides a harmony and a juxtaposition to the simple beauty of Peter Paul and Mary's music. Every holiday season, I keep going back to this CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cannot live without it during the holidays March 5, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Our entire family absolutely loves both the album and the video concert. Every Christmas this is the most listened to cd in our collection. This year we needed to find a new copy, we all searched and visited six or seven major music chains before we found one copy. We were very happy when we did, our Christmas was complete. Hopefully the video of the concert will be released, the video contains many more fabulous songs that they performed.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite holiday CD November 20, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This CD features a recording of Peter, Paul & Mary singing live at a holiday concert with the New York Choral Society. It includes a variety of holiday songs that children and adults will love in addition to a finale of "Blowin' in the Wind." I also enjoy the two Hanukkah songs on the album, especially "Light One Candle."

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Christmas album ever December 14, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm about to buy my first CD of this album; I've owned the tape for about 13 years, and it's by far my favorite Christmas collection. Peter, Paul, and Mary have the perfect voices to sing these songs, and they include less well-known songs, like the Cherry Tree Carol (about Joseph's suspicions of Mary's infidelity) , as well as popular songs like "We wish you a merry Christmas." The one Chanuka song on he album, "Light One Candle" almost brings tears to my eyes.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite November 30, 2004
By Alison
Format:Audio CD
I have played this CD about 15 times a day during the holidays since I saw the performance on PBS years ago. Really fantastic renditions of all the songs. I get teary-eyed throughout, especially at the end of Blowin in the Wind. Typical PP & M - you really do feel that a peaceful world is not beyond our grasp.
