How many forty-year old albums do you still listen to? Probably not too many, but this should be one of them (it certainly is one of mine). For a young group on their first album, this was meticulously produced and already showed their incredible sense of professionalism. From their close harmonies to tightly interleaved guitar picking, each song radiates perfectionism. Mary's voice is a lilting bird reaching above Peter's tenor and Paul's bass, adding brilliant highlights and enforcing the sense that these songs just couldn't be sung any better.
Probably anyone who was alive at the time of this album's release still remembers If I Had a Hammer and Lemon Tree, the two top hits from this album. But over the years I have found that my own personal favorites are Cruel War, which already showed some of the group's dedication to anti-war and other political messages, as highlighted by the Civil War age of this song; Autumn to May, which showed another prime marker of the group of children's songs sung so beautifully that they are difficult to dismiss; and Where Have All the Flowers Gone, which perhaps might be called the ultimate anti-war song.
But the other tracks here have power also. (Man of Constant) Sorrow, as re-written and performed here, reaches beyond its Appalachian roots to touch your soul, 500 miles is haunting with Mary as lead soloist, This Train and Early Morning show the third trademark of this group, their deep religious feelings, and Bamboo shows just what they can do with a very simple song.
In short, this album is a must for all lovers of folk or pop-folk music, with every track offering something to immerse yourself in and enjoy.

Peter, Paul And Mary is a self-titled album that gives us here on CD all the songs from their first record album. The sound quality is great and I love that artwork! Peter, Paul & Mary could never be forgotten.

"Early In The Morning" starts off the CD with a stunning melody--Peter, Paul & Mary sing and play this without a superfluous note! The beat is somewhat sped up, a tad more so than I've heard it before, but it still holds its own very well. Peter, Paul & Mary sound absolutely great on this track! "500 Miles" is another touching ballad that moves me whenever I hear it; they harmonize so well and the guitar work again enhances the natural beauty of this classic folk rock ballad.

"This Train" has them harmonizing in such a way that they mimic the sound of a train whistle; and when they break into song this number really takes off like a jet! The guitars weave their usual magic and all together "This Train" is a very solid number on this CD. Great! Listen also for "Bamboo;" this number uses percussion and drums as they sing a song that sounds somewhat like a Caribbean melody. Peter, Paul & Mary again harmonize to perfection and this really impresses me a lot.

"It's Raining" features Peter, Paul & Mary singing a classic children's song; but they do this so well you'd never know it's a children's song unless you had heard it as a child or sung it to your own child! "It's Raining" truly gets the royal treatment from Peter, Paul & Mary. "If I Had My Way" picks up the pace a bit and Peter, Paul & Mary really belt this out!

"Lemon Tree" is a great song that compares love to a lemon tree; they explore just how difficult and painful love can be when things don't work out well.

My life of music would have a hole in it without this classic folk album. To this day I still think that this is one of the prettiest records ever made. Cruel War is on it. That's the one about the woman begging her man to let her go to war with him dressed as a man. It is historically accurate. Many dead soldiers in the Civil War were discovered to be females in men's clothing. The angelic voice of Mary Travers blends with Peter's tenor and Paul's bass on some gorgeous harmonies. I recently played about 60 old albums and liked this one best of them all.

When I repurchased this album recently, I didn't expect the reaction I would have listening to it again. I've spent decades giving the Beatles most of the credit for my musical taste, my philosophy, and my political viewpoint, but I was wrong. I now realize I was singing "Where Have All the Flowers Gone" and "Cruel War" before I'd ever heard "I Want to Hold Your Hand," and the consciousness-raising Beatles stage was years in the future. A week after I heard this album again I was vacationing (without my CDs), and these songs filled my thoughts day and night. I don't mean that to sound either profound or trivial, it's simply true. Obviously, they have lost none of their impact on me. I cherish this music, from the gorgeous blend of the three voices to the lyrics, to the hopeful times I remember through them. If this sort of memory sounds familiar to you, do yourself a favor and raise your voice with PP&M again. You'll thank yourself, you'll empower yourself, you'll remember to try to make the world a better place!
