"This recording captures the energy, diversity of talent and great vocal style of the trio which epitomized the collective folk conscience of the dynamic '60's. Peter, Paul and Mary became the popular mouthpiece of an idealistic generation which had begun to dare to question war and social injustice, spinning their message with the hearty fiber of love songs (requited and not), folk ballads and humor.Here is a great selection from a repertoire which helped complete the connection between the labor union roots of Woody Guthrie, the Weavers, and Tom Paxton and the contemporary/traditional sounds of the Limeliters and Kingston Trio with the politically-charged lyrics of Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Phil Ochs and others.Variety abounds, from the magical "Puff" to the harmonic "Jesus Met the Woman." From the lonesome call of Mary's lead in "500 miles" to the far-flung wit, self-examination and low-tech special effects of "Paultalk," this collection brings you in and wraps you in the enchantment and sing-along emotion that have been the trademarks of PP and M concerts throughout their careers. And the joy and sorrow and hope translate faithfully in the recordings.It is unfortunate that "must-have" is such an overused phrase, but it surely applies to this effort. Join in, get your feet tapping and heart-strings jumping, and, "if you do not know the words, you'd better learn them," as Peter chides.Altogether, a fun bit of time-travel and a good workout for that slightly atrophied folk-lobe in your brain."
Those concerts must have been fun

"This is a SUPERB collection and is my PP&M favorite. I went off to college in 1964 and took my HS graduation gift "RECORD PLAYER" and was given this album as a gift from my sister. The guys in the dorm and I spent countless hours listening to those 2 LP's. We felt like we were "in the concert". When the "funny stuff" like Paultalk, Car-Car (Riding In My Car) and Blue came on we would quietly listen like it was the first time and then burst into laughter! There's no need to sell on the songs. They are all familiar standards. You either like folk music or you don't. What's fun is to think back to life during this era. Simple but extremely complicated. A date might be to take in the coffee shop and hear some great folk songs while drinking....COFFEE.KUMBAYA!! The next morning might see you carrying protest signs on campus or being involved in some other movement. I'll tell you how much I've enjoyed this collection. There was the original gift LP, it was later replaced with a tape cartridge, then a cassette tape and finally a CD. Oh, and I ripped the CD to MP3 files so I can enjoy them on the computer. I'm really a music buff. I still have huge collections of 78's, 45's, LP's, cartridges, cassettes, CD's and now MP3's. Tens of thousands of songs. I'd rank this collection in my top 25. Take a walk down memory lane with this great CD. Give it a try, you'll enjoy it."
