"I feel guilty saying anything critical about Peter, Paul and Mary, but "Around the Campfire" was a little disappointing. In theory, it seems like a good idea to put out a double CD of the trio's most memorable songs, from the early sixties, up until their most recent releases, and even with a few previously unreleased songs. However, the album seems geared largely for children listeners as many of the songs are taken from recent children-oriented albums, such as "Peter, Paul and Mommy" and "Peter, Paul and Mommy, Too." Also, a few bad choices detract from the whole, such as including a recent live version of Puff instead of the classic studio version. Two of the new songs are religious folk songs, which might resurrect unpleasant memories of church camp -- or simply church, for that matter. Most disappointing is that time has not been kind to Mary's voice. Peter and Paul sound beautiful in their twilight years, but Mary has lost her high range and sounds raspy. The abundance of recent recordings on this CD makes one's awareness of this inescapable. Even if you buy this album principally for your kids - as I did - remember that you too need to listen to it."

"Peter, Paul, & Mary did a wonderful job on this album! It brought me back to the summers I sat around the campfire with my friends. I practically grew up with "Puff, The Magic Dragon:" in fact, that's the song that first got me interested in Peter, Paul, & Mary. I was looking for an answer to who originally sung "Puff,The Magic Dragon," after hearing it in one of my elementary school classes, and after I found out, I started hearing them on the radio a few years later, and after a while, I got hooked.I love this group!"
