Received this today and just finished listening to both discs................Until now these recordings were never released in the US. After hearing them I am so glad I get to listen to them now.

Most all the songs will be very familiar to long time devotees of this group. These Cd's sound great............they are clear as a bell, the soundstage is very impressive, and they do not sound tinny like many live recordings made in the 60's. The stand up bass is very well recorded and can be heard nicely with no equalization.

I had the good fortune to see 3 concerts by this group in the mid 60's................In spite of the folk purists who look down their noses at groups like PP and M, they were GREAT entertainers who chose their material well and sang and played with technical precision and soulful presentation. For me the highlights of this set are Paul's magnificent rendition of the Dylan masterpiece Don't Think Twice It's Alright and the exuberant in-your-face performance of If I Had My Way.

For fans of the group this a no brainer to give it 5 stars and the highest possible recommendation.

As fans already know, this is a two disc set of the 1967 single album, "Deluxe: Live In Japan", which is still available from Amazon for a lot of money. This double disc set celebrates Japan's PPM's 50th Anniversary, with extra tracks from the same concert, at Kousei Nenkin Hall in Tokyo. The sound has been remastered and is very good. The voices are clean, strong, and crisp, and the guitars ring out, and the bass (played by Richard Kniss) holds the bottom end together perfectly. The 15 page booklet contains an informative essay on PPM in Japan, and several b&w photos of the trio. Also included is an excerpt from the original album's liner notes, along with pertinent song and recording information. One thing I did wonder about is that all the tunes on the two discs (38,39 minutes each approximately) could've fit onto one disc-so why two separate discs? To make more money? But that's really a minor quibble, because the music and the performances are of such high quality.

This set is, in some ways, even better than the group's earlier "In Concert" album. The feel of the songs have a sense of immediateness and almost an urgency to them. The group had been involved in the (mid 60's) racial movement, and now (1967) was just beginning to get behind the Vietnam War protests movement that was just really beginning to coalesce into a true movement. Perhaps it's because I'm from that whole Vietnam era, but the group's voices have an even more committed, serious tone to them.

Picking highlights is pretty difficult.

This is an extraordinary album, recorded live 45 years ago! Peter Paul and Mary displayed amazing harmonies on their studio albums, and this live album proves they could do it on stage as well. Their live stuff was always immediate and exciting. Guitar work is superb, and a special mention must be made of Dick Kniss' bass playing. If you are a PPM fan, you simply must have this album.

As a long time fan of Peter, Paul and Mary I am glad another Live Concert album has finally been released. Like many of the folk groups of the time, they sound as great live as they did in the studio.

The concert includes 8 songs from their newest album "Album" and an interesting blues instrumental track "Serge's Blues" as well as many of their old standards. The sound quality is very good.

To answer an earlier reviewer, I am guessing that the intent of the manufacturer (Rhino) was to release the album as it was first offered on vinyl (CD 1) and also to include the other songs omitted from the original album (CD 2). Why the original vinyl album wasn't a double set like the earlier "In Concert" album is a mystery to me.

So if you liked the original PP&M "In Concert" album, you'll love this. So go out and buy it!

Having been a fan for many years, this discovery shows how good they were to achieve such a great result, live, 45 years ago, with only three track recording equipment.
I doubt if (m)any current acts could achieve this result live - even with the advantage of all the gear we now have available.
And it sound so fresh!!!!!!!!
I think this recording is better than their "In Concert" double album, released back in the time when this was recorded.
If you don't have any thing of their recordings - and I have them all - this is the one to get!!!!!!

I'm so glad I found out about this old--and yet new--CD. Wonderful value for the money. Love the Japanese addition to "This Land is Your Land." Their voices really were at their peak during this time.

Best of PPM, live, 1967. It really does not get better than this when it comes to concert recordings, and the fact that there is more music here than what was released originally in 1967 [in Japan only] is icing on what was already a delicious cake for your ear buds.
